BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger says his office’s turnaround time for processing business registrations is at its lowest level since 2010.

The turnaround time is in the week range, which is down from about a month at high points in the last several years, the Bismarck Tribune ( ) reported.

“The numbers have stayed very strong in terms of registrations,” Jaeger said. “We were running about four weeks in our turnaround time. Our turnaround is now running at about a week, which is very good.”

Temporary workers were approved during the 2013 legislative session and the positions were later made permanent. Others were also added.

Jaeger said they got some tips on improving efficiency over the summer from a firm doing work for the office about a long-delayed project to make an online business registration filing system. The project was proposed in 2004 with an initial completion date of 2008. The project’s first phase is expected to be implemented next year.

The secretary of state’s office said there have been more than 10,600 new business registrations through September, which is an average of 1,179 each month.
