The Environmental Finance Center (EFC) of Syracuse University recently issued a RFP for rural communities to conduct an asset management inventory for their water or waste water systems. The program will award mini-grants of up to $5,000 to provide rural municipalities with the proper tools and resources to fully conduct an inventory. An asset management inventory can serve as a useful first step for creating an asset management plan, which can then be used as a decision-making tool to aid municipalities in the development of a capital management plan.
All proposals must be received by 5 pm on January 3, 2014. Awards will be announced no later than February 1, 2014. Work must be completed by August 31, 2014. For more information, visit the EFC website.
