Every public works agency is charged with managing their community’s development plans and projects. However, many communities don’t know what assets and equipment they have nor what condition the assets are in.
It’s extremely difficult to successfully complete directives or budget resources if you don’t know what assets are at your disposal. In this session representatives from 2 agencies will focus on why asset management programs are utilized, what information they can provide and how they got staff buy in to participate in the program.
After viewing this program participants will be better able to:
1. Explain why asset management is a critical function in any public works agency
2. Correlate why knowing the condition of your assets helps secure funding for operations and maintenance
3. Determine how an asset management system can benefit front line employees in their day to day work
