Des Plaines, IL (October 12, 2011) – URISA is pleased to announce the first of three URISA Connect virtual events focusing on Asset Management. This series is based on the popular URISA Certified Workshop, Asset Management: Planning, Strategy and Implementation. The first event, presented by Allen Ibaugh, AICP, GISP and Jason Amadori, GISP, will be presented on Wednesday, October 19.
Public and private agencies face continuous challenges to accomplish more with less as increases in demand, regulatory requirements, infrastructure deterioration, and political and economic forces have significantly outpaced increases in capital and operating budgets. Many of these agencies are turning to Asset Management to cope with these challenges and improve business performance and effectiveness. This presentation will focus on several aspects of developing an asset management system that could help improve performance, reduce long-term costs, and maximize return on investment in infrastructure assets. Implementation examples from state, regional, and local governments will be included.
Specific topics will include:
- Strategy and Planning
- Data Collection Methods
- Software Solutions
- Information Management and Decision Support Tools
