NextGen CM/ECF Information

The United States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma upgraded its CM/ECF system to the Next Generation ("NextGen") of CM/ECF on August 12, 2019.

E-filers are required to use their individual, upgraded PACER account username and password to access the electronic filing system in NextGen courts.

About NextGen CM/ECF

The Federal Judiciary has developed a Next Generation (NextGen) Case Management / Electronic Case Filing (CM/ECF) system that allows e-filers to maintain one account (an individual, upgraded PACER account) for Central Sign On (CSO) across all federal courts (appellate, bankruptcy, and district) that have transitioned to NextGen CM/ECF. This means that e-filers will use their one CSO username and password to access all NextGen courts where they have permission to file, as well as to access PACER for all federal courts. While NextGen CM/ECF is not yet available in all courts, it is anticipated that all federal courts will transition to NextGen by the end of 2021. Until then, e-filing in courts that have not yet transitioned to NextGen CM/ECF will still require a separate account for each such court.
