Asset Management

What is Asset Management?

Video – What is Asset Management (Saskatchewan – 5:33 min)

Asset management asks and answers the following questions:

  • What do we own?
  • Where is it?
  • What is it worth?
  • What condition is it in?
  • What service does it provide?
  • What needs to be done to maintain or change the level of service?
  • When will it need to be done?
  • What will it cost?

It is an ongoing system that includes an asset’s entire lifecycle from design/ planning, procurement/ construction, operation/ maintenance and replacement/ disposal.

Ontario municipalities follow asset management legislation O. Reg. 588/17 Asset Management Planning for Municipal Infrastructure which was approved under the Infrastructure for Jobs and Prosperity Act, 2015, c. 15.

Good asset management involves a complete, long-term approach where input from all levels of the municipality and stakeholders is included in asset decision-making activities.

This allows the County to make the right decisions at the right time while managing costs/ risks and maintaining levels of service, in order to achieve the best value from its public assets.

Haldimand County Asset Management Policy

Haldimand County’s Asset Management Policy was approved in June, 2019.

It outlines the County’s commitment to good stewardship of its physical assets and states that asset management practices will be legislatively compliant, performed in a safe and environmentally sustainable manner and are aligned with the County’s strategic mission, vision and objectives.
