COMMUNICATING MUNICIPAL ASSET MANAGEMENT
ALEKS DZINTARS, PSD RESEARCH

A strong municipal asset management program requires the support and buy-in of multiple departments, senior management and city council. Furthermore, the broader community must be aware of the role asset management plays in supporting strategic long-term decisions regarding infrastructure investments. PSD is now assisting communities with asset management community engagement and internal communications efforts.

Together with our team of researchers, policy analysts, and former municipal executives, municipalities will have the opportunity to build a coherent and informed engagement and communications strategy meant specifically for communicating asset management to relevant stakeholders. PSD will work with your municipality to develop and execute engagement exercises to determine the level of awareness of asset management among council, staff and the community. Following the engagement process, PSD will assist your municipality in designing and delivering tailored presentations, workshops and tools to help address identified gaps in asset management communications competencies.
