An increasing number of local governments recognize the need to improve their asset management practices. Agencies are implementing systems and software as they adopt an all-encompassing approach that considers asset life-cycles and full cost accountability. These new efforts are being used across local governments for infrastructure planning, renewal, investment, and development. The scope of this work is tremendous, given the quantity and various types of both durable and expendable assets the average agency has in inventory. A well-organized asset management program usually considers the key principles listed below as they implement a new program or work to improve existing efforts.
Make informed, cost-effective decisions around asset data
Extend the serviceable life of assets, thereby reducing capital expenditures
Integrate work activities, GIS content, and budgetary constraints
Establish accountability for maintaining asset categories
Program maintenance and replacement
Awareness of asset life-cycle and the related total costs of use
Minimize risk to citizens and staff by reducing capital failures
Use data to establish and update best practices
