- WHEN: End of April so we can expedite the certification process for all participants
- HOW: Send your attachments via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to:
- Copy the relevant regional consultant, and
- If you worked in a group (which we encourage), list the names of the individuals who worked on the assignment(s). *In this case, only one individual from the group needs to email the submission.
ROUND 1: ASSET MANAGEMENT ACTION PLAN
Complete the AMAP process:
- Meet with 3-4 colleagues from other government departments that are involved in asset management (e.g. engineering, health, education, water, waste management, procurement, finance, community development) to establish a small asset management team and review the content of the workshops.
- With the new asset management team, decide on one priority asset you wish to focus on first. Use the criteria you learned during the first session to determine the priority asset (e.g. implications of failure and vital services provided).
- Collectively assign one member of the team to be the focal point for asset management (feel free to volunteer!) at the technical level and seek endorsement by the town clerk/CAO for that appointment.
- Begin to populate the AMAP template – consult the writing guide and/or Chapter 4 of the Handbook.
ROUND 2: ASSET MANAGEMENT DATA
*Unlike Round 1’s assignment, there is no template to fill out. Please complete the assignment in the format of your choice, i.e. Word, PowerPoint.
Part A: Asset Hierarchy
- Select an asset system that is critical for you and list the services and asset categories included in it.
Sketch out a potential asset hierarchy.
- Implement an identification system so that each asset has a unique ID.
- From your chosen asset system, pick one asset category.
- Divide this category further into asset types and indicate the data you need for the effective operation and maintenance of each type.
Part B: Key Data Points
- Compile five (5) key data points for your priority asset (as defined in your AMAP).
- Trace and report on the trends you observe over the last one to three (1-3) years.
