HELPING REDEFINE RECORDS MANAGEMENT IN KUMBO, CAMEROON, AFRICA

KUMBO WATER AUTHORITY PROJECT

Spacesaver Solutions was approached by CSCE (Canadian Society of Civil Engineers) and asked to participate as part of an all Canadian team to provide improvements for the Kumbo Water Authority in Kumbo, Cameroon, Africa. The original water project was created and donated by CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency) with the original construction completed in 1970. Scott Farnham, Spacesaver Solutions’, Director of Records Management, participated in the two year project (2009- 2011) responsible for developing and implementing an improved records management program.

The result of Scott’s work left the KWA with a records management program that improved the quality of the water by recommending the regular documentation of the quality of water (chlorine content) that was to be reviewed and adjusted by the management staff on a regular basis. The creation of a customer based filing system allowed for proper tracking of outstanding bills. The result of properly documented customer files resulted in the KWA reducing outstanding receivables therefore being able to open more water sources in the region! Also, the resulting Policies and Procedures document allowed for the KWA to be compliant to the Regions accounting retention requirements allowing the KWA to be compliant for their yearly audit. Documents that once were considered lost or took days to locate can now be retrieved in minutes!

We’d love to have the opportunity to work with you. If you have a project that is in need of a storage overhaul, contact us early in the process for a complimentary space assessment.
