Toyota Kirloskar Motor Private Limited, a joint venture of Japan-based automaker Toyota Motor Corporation (NYSE: TM) (LSE: TYT) (TYO: 7203), has an order backlog of 5,000 units for its Fortuner Sports Utility Vehicle.
Several other courts have had their figures revised, and an apparent pounds 70,000 backlog at Pwllheli Magistrates' Court seems to have disappeared altogether.
Officials hope the new system will free up planning officers to deal with their work, and not risk a further backlog.
The Knight Open Government Survey audit, released by the National Security Archive, an independent non-government research institute located at The George Washington University, found that 200,000 requests are still pending, and some agencies' backlogs actually have increased since Bush signed the order in December 2005.
The study by the Coalition of Journalists for Open Government concludes the Bush directive did nothing to speed up responses by agencies that have been systematically cutting back the personnel assigned to FOIA work, even as backlogs of requests grow and the cost of fulfilling requests increases.
Once the issue is clarified for all staff, the next two steps--separation and simplification--work hand-in-hand to increase productivity and rapidly address the growing backlog of transactions.
If backlog becomes excessive--an overflowing bucket--you'll find that you can't do all the requested work.

Almost 370,000 drivers are still on provisional licences and a backlog at testing centres means the situation will only get worse.
