Each fiscal year, the SELCO Delivery Team – Bob Olson, Sarah Bradway, and Jade Winsor – do three sample “Count Days” to help assess how many items are moving through the SELCO region delivery in a single fiscal year. A “Count Day” consists of the team counting each item that comes through delivery and then tallying the items for the day. Counts are done in August, November, and March.
The single day samples for FY2017 were:
- August 2016 – 2865 (tends to be lighter due to schools being out for the summer)
- November 2017 – 3326
- March 2017 – 3562
Utilizing a formula which takes into account how many days per month delivery is done, the summer months, and the academic year…791,820 items were circulated in FY2017!
That number is an increase from the previous year and is also impressive for the region when compared to the fact that Minitex circulates roughly 700,000 for the whole state in the same amount of time.
