We process mapped the GRF payments the Clerk's office receives to eliminate any redundancies and make the process more efficient.

Biggest Change:
Receipts and reports that were previously signed and sent to the Fiscal office were deemed completely unnecessary and will not continue to be sent.

Other Changes:
The Clerk's office has eliminated use of one of its three forms of data backup -- all shared essentially the same information in different software.

Steps - Baseline: 28
Steps - Projection: 22

Forms - Baseline: 4
Forms - Actual: 3

Benefits: Errors will be reduced because the sheer number of backup forms that were previously filled out contributed to potential mistakes. The process will now be simpler and leaner.

Redirected Hours - Projection: 50 hours

Additional Information: We mapped out additional processes that the Clerk's office has for processing different payments. In each one, redundancies or unnecessary forms/reports were discovered.
