Alaric Robertson, Records Management Officer/ Business Continuity Planning Manager, TDLR presents:
Is your organization interested in saving real money, or hard dollars as we call it? Why not take the time to learn what Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) has done to save tax payer money, improve records retention and create much needed physical space? Pass this invite to your colleagues that may be interested in hearing more about Alaric Robertson’s Six Sigma Black Belt project.
While working in the Office of Innovation Alaric Robertson identified and researched areas for improvement concerning records management within TDLR. From 2006 to 2015, the annual cost of storing and archiving records had consistently risen from $5,000 to over $43,000 and is still steadily increasing. Those numbers do not include other costs like boxes, personnel salaries dedicated to prepping boxes, reams of paper, printer ink, imaging etc. The box quantity increased from 2,100 to 6,100 over a span of 9 years prior to the completion of Alaric’s Six Sigma Project and TDLR was significantly running out of physical storage space.
Alaric initiated and worked with every division and department in TDLR to change TDLR’s records retention schedule in a manner that allowed the agency to dispose of over 4,000 boxes of documents immediately which gave TDLR an immediate cost savings of $90,000 over the following five years. The project was the catalyst for initializing a formal records management program at TDLR.
During our November meeting, you will learn how Alaric used Six Sigma Methods to identify, prioritize and come up with solutions for issues with managing records which has resulted in substantial cost savings. We look forward to seeing you.
