Developing and Maintaining Forms Management Program in your Company
Presented by Bet Morash | Recorded on December 9, 2010
Twenty-three organizations involved in the development and deployment of forms recognized no forms department should stand alone. So in 2002, they formed a committee to develop a national standard that would encompass issues they personally face on a daily basis. The result of their labor is the National Standard for Canada – Forms Management (CAN/CGSB-6.2) – a document written by forms professionals for forms professionals. This is not a government written standard but it is backed by them. It deals with recommended requirements for policy, and provides guidance on program implementation, training, resource utilization and the promotion of the Forms Management Program. This presentation will outline the objectives of the standard including the criteria and guidance for the establishment and operation of a forms-management program in either public- or private-sector organizations. The National Forms Management Standard (NFMS) may help you establish a forms management program as well as justify your department.
