Dana,
 
Thank you  very much it is useful for me too.
However, for me it is important to know a little bit more:
How the costs were calculated - Cost of space, staff cost - how many staff organization needs?
I also would like to ask people who works in Municipal Government environment - could somebody give example of calculation for cost of storing 12" box in Records Centre and how much does it cost "request" for one file from the records centre.
 
Thank you,
 
Alex Babin

great question, I would be interested in what others have to say as well.

While I don't have any current accurate numbers, the following back of the
envelope calculus might prove insightful. In a former life I was the RM at
a large law firm. I don't have any current figures about it now it has been
so long since I was there but I imagine the numbers would be (within a
factor of 10) something like the following. Bear in mind that this is very
rough ball park type numbers


Assume total revenue = $100,000,000

Cost of RM program would include hard costs (storage fees, equipment,
supplies) Cost of staff salary & benefits, soft costs of space dedicated to
file storage & staff workspace which otherwise could be used in other
manners.

Staff costs = 750,000
Hard costs = 500,000
Soft costs = 300,000
total costs = 1,550,000 / 100,000,000 = 1.55%
