MLDP wants to enhance municipal understanding of asset management. Topics for the module should include asset types, the role of municipal council and administration in the development of an asset management plan, cost-effective management strategies, assessing asset condition, level of service and its effect on assets, public engagement, and leveraging your asset management plan in funding applications.

This RFP is for developing the module and delivery of the full-day Asset Management for Municipalities module with visual, written and interactive components. The workshop should include a PowerPoint format presentation, group work/engagement, and a written manual to be provided as ‘take-home tools’ for module participants.
