What is the OJBC?

The Open Justice Broker Consortium is a non-profit membership organization of government agencies and jurisdictions, dedicated to improving justice information sharing through the reuse of low-cost, standards-based integration software.  The OJBC unlocks the power of open source software and cross-boundary collaboration to promote a more effective, efficient justice system.  Organizations that adopt the OJB platform and participate as Consortium Members can:

  • Access powerful integrated justice technology at very low cost
