AM 203.1 - Level of Service for Other Assets - Part 1
Part I of the workshop on Levels of Service for other assets will cover facilities, vehicles, and equipment. The workshop will include a presentation covering a general introduction to levels of service, an overview of relevant regulatory requirements, and applicable best practices. The presentation will be followed by interactive discussions in breakout groups where participants, with the help of a facilitator, will work with templates to begin defining a levels of service framework for the asset category of choice (facilities, vehicles, or equipment).
What You will Learn:
The interactive workshop will help participants develop a levels of service framework for facilities, vehicles, and equipment. Participants will work in small breakout groups to complete/customize templates with help from workshop facilitators. Beyond developing Levels of Service measures and metrics, the workshop will cover data collection, documentation, and setting targets.

Who Should Attend:
Local government staff that are responsible for asset management planning, particularly the development of a levels of service framework for facilities, vehicles, and equipment.

Benefits of Attending:
Participants can expect to
  • Leave the workshop with a foundation for a levels of service framework for one asset class (facilities, vehicles, or equipment).
  • Gain hands-on experience with a collaborative approach to defining levels of service.
  • Benefit from the future use of templates used in the workshops as they complete this work for other asset classes/service areas.
