Asset Management Series: Using Risk to Build an Asset Prioritization Process

Webinar Overview:
Submitting an asset management plan is a requirement for provincial funding opportunities and many municipalities are working toward that goal by the end of the year. But how do you prioritize your infrastructure needs in the asset management plan and capital budget? The Region of Peel has developed an asset management strategy that gives senior managers an organizational perspective to make better informed decisions on infrastructure priorities. It is the basis that guides each of Peel's departments in developing their capital and asset management plans and it is already helping to make sound financial decisions to close the funding gap.

This webinar will examine the Region of Peel's consistent and systematic approach, scalable tools and reporting methods to manage their asset priorities.
