Asset Management is a strategic and systematic process of maintaining, upgrading, and operating physical assets cost-effectively.
The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) uses Asset Management to identify and evaluate road conditions, thereby applying resources where they are most needed to maintain roads and the transportation system in general.
Networks Northwest Community Development staff provide regional support for the program, which includes: administrative support, liaison activities between the counties and MDOT, training, scheduling of inventory times, data collection, and equipment handling. Data collection is coordinated with a County Road Commission employee, a representative from a local MDOT office, and Networks Northwest staff utilizing the PAvement Surface Evaluation Rating (PASER) system on all Federal-Aid eligible roads. The PASER system rates on a 1-10 linear scale, with 1 being poor and 10 excellent.

Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
