Designing Overall Backup System

I have been given the task of restructuring our entire backup process.
The way it is done currently is a bit of a mess.
We have a 4 drawer firesafe for offsite storage, which needs to have some kind categories so the layman can place/pull any given tape easily.  Furthermore, any given tape can be requested by me.

I realize this is asking a lot - I am basically looking for an overall system for sake of brainstorming & seeing examples.  As far as the gruntwork - I have that already in play...just need some vision of the forest - trees are all good.

Thanks

First you need to define your RPO and RTO

RPO - Recovery Point Objective - from which time frame you will be able to back from (30 min,  a day, 7 days, etc..)

RTO - Recovery Time Objective - how long it will take to recover your data (1 hour 4 days..most depends on how much your backing up)

Once you have defined your RPO and RTO and audited your backup size you can figure out how to best create a Disaster Recovery/Business Continuity Plan.

Thanks just the kind of "plan of attack" answer I was hoping for.
