OMC tracking forms

Each site sends a one-page tracking form to the state OMC office for each client.

  • Problems:
    • Required faxing and maintaining reams of paper documents
    • All information had to be manually input from paper forms into a database
    • Required OMC staff to call/email local sites to get any missing information

Clients served in 2011 4,279

  • Fax sheets 8,558
  • Reams of paper at 500 sheets per ream 17
  • Number of reams per tree 16.67
  • Trees saved per year 1.03
