The application of asset management principles to utility master planning improves the confidence in the planning results and lays the foundation for a dynamic process, however, it also involves changes in the way the organization thinks and operates.

The Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission's (WSSC) Utility Master Plan (UMP) project has delivered a high level 30 year investment projection for all WSSC infrastructure, development of an asset management hierarchy down to the maintenance managed item, asset management plan content specifications, the adoption of a corporate asset management policy, and a detailed Asset Management Implementation Plan (AMIP) based on a gap analysis and mapping of “as is” and “to be” strategic business processes. The 30 year investment projection delivered within 3 months of project kickoff identified immediate, medium and long term priorities and has been a tremendous catalyst for communicating to WSSC's stakeholders the challenges associated with investing in the renewal of WSSC's infrastructure assets.
