Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
This perpetual Memorandum of Understanding with the California Department of Justice for continued Electronic Recording Delivery System (ERDS) oversight of regulations will replace prior perpetual agreement 5211. County participation continues annually until either party (DOJ or the County) does not wish to continue with the agreement. Fees are a pro-rata share of cost based upon the number of documents recorded annually. El Dorado County currently has an estimated 400 active submitters with a combination of title companies and lenders and many that have not yet been activated. Currently more than 75% of all recordings are completed through the electronic recording system.

Electronic recording has been implemented in many counties and El Dorado County began to e-record in June 2013. Continuing the MOU with the Department of Justice will keep electronic recording safe and secure. According to Procurement Policy 4.5 Departments must obtain authorization from the Board of Supervisors initially, and on an annual basis, to utilize any contract that does not have a stated contract term.

ALTERNATIVES
If the County would like to continue electronic recording this payment is necessary to allow the California Department of Justice to provide oversight of electronic recording regulations.
