AMONTario Publishes the Comprehensive Guide to the Asset Management Process

The Comprehensive Guide to the Asset Management Process sets forth a systematic, end-to-end process for doing asset management. Its orientation is strategic and enterprise-wide.

Asset management is multi-disciplinary and impacts all levels of the organization. This Guide is designed for all municipal practitioners. At our in-person workshops, we have delivered this material to municipal employees working in finance, public works, planning, legislative and administrative services, engineering, corporate services, as well as to elected officials.
