ABSTRACT: ACMS is a database that stores records on bankruptcy cases, including case identifiers, estate details, and a history of case hearings, reports, pleadings, appointments, and fees.

PURPOSE: ACMS was designed to manage bankruptcy cases filed throughout the United States and to ensure that cases are administered in accordance with the Bankruptcy Code. The system is used to provide information to the U.S. Trustees on case status, hearing dates, names of the trustee and attorney assigned and other data. It is also used to provide a variety of accounting and management reports.

ACCESS CONSTRAINTS: Access to this data is limited to employees within the United States Trustee Program in order to perform their official duties. Administrative, physical, and technical safeguards, such as user IDs and passwords, are in place to protect the integrity of the data.

USE CONSTRAINTS: Users of the ACMS will be restricted to only those privileges necessary to perform assigned tasks.

AGENCY PROGRAM: The U.S. Trustee Program is charged with promoting the efficiency and protecting and preserving the integrity of the bankruptcy system. ACMS is one of the tools utilized to accomplish this mission.

SOURCES OF DATA: Data contained in ACMS is obtained from bankruptcy petitions filed by the debtor with the bankruptcy court as well as actions taken by the Bankruptcy Courts and the Office of the U.S. Trustee.
