Are you ready to comply fully for 2009?
Municipalities are struggling to meet and finance infrastructure requirements just as traditional funding mechanisms dry up or get eliminated. The Federal government has announced a comprehensive infrastructure stimulus package but questions remain around the detailed process and rules for accessing the resources.
Meanwhile, although the filing and reporting deadlines for PSAB 3150 implementation has passed, it is well known that many, if not most municipalities across Canada have not completed all the required steps and the level of readiness anticipated by PSAB. We spoke to directors of engineering, finance and accounting in municipalities across Canada and found a vast difference in the level of readiness for filing under the new system by the December 31, 2009 deadline.
Many of you acknowledged that you are struggling in some fundamental areas of implementation, often exacerbated by the scarcity of resources available for the task. Many recognise that you need to demonstrate that you have completed the PSAB steps or face the possibility of a qualified audit opinion â€“ an action that may make it much harder for you to access money set aside by your Province or the Federal Infrastructure pool.
However, there are several municipalities that are ahead of the curve and are starting to reap the benefits of having taken specific action early. The Canadian Institute has assembled a faculty of experts from both the private consulting sector and from within municipalities so you can figure out how to develop a robust capital asset management plan that will help you secure the funding you need to replace or maintain vital infrastructure and tangible capital assets.
The Municipal Capital Asset Management and Funding Summit scheduled for September 29-30, 2009 in Toronto will provide tips on financing options, how to properly account for and inventory your assets and how to stay compliant when filing under the PS 3150 mandate.
So join us and save time in this critical process by attending this conference and get solutions you need to make strategic and cost effective decisions on these resourceâ€“ consuming and hotly debated challenges facing your municipality:
Properly implementing your capital ssset management plan
Inventorying municipal capital assets
Integrating funding & financing strategies in your capital asset management plan
Filling the municipal infrastructure gap
Plus, case studies and more
