“WE WANT TO BE YOUR OFF-SITE RESOURCE TO DO THE PROJECTS FOR WHICH YOU DO NOT HAVE TIME”
Managers are responsible for planning, organizing, directing, and controlling activities. The maintenance management system is the best tool. A good one can bring as much as a 20% savings.
Revenues are shrinking and demands are increasing. The major challenge today is to do more with less. Pavement management systems are another tool to help you manage resources better and easier. In fact, counties in Washington are required by law to use a pavement management system to manage the arterial road system. Pavement management information is the foundation for a good preventive maintenance program. It can help you make the pavements last indefinitely.
It is easy to do good visual ratings for a road system. It is difficult to use the information well. Many agencies are thinking, “Now that we have all of this data, what should we do with it?” We can answer that question for you! We will help you develop a full-service pavement management program. It will enhance maintenance management and construction programming. You can use the information to develop priority lists for all pavement work ranging from crack filling and surface sealing to total reconstruction
One of the largest investments for any government agency is vehicles and equipment. It is especially true for a road or street department. Well managed and maintained equipment can result in 20% or more cost savings on equipment costs alone. Improved efficiency of the users can result in even more savings. We can help you achieve these savings by establishing good fleet management procedures.
“Do more with less!” That is the battle cry of the new millennium. The public demands that we work efficiently and effectively. Many taxpayers believe that government would cost less if all activities were privatized. But privatizing is not cost effective at well-managed agencies. We can help you prove it.
Managed competition is a process to compare the cost and quality of work by agency crews with work accomplished by contractors. Plans and specifications are developed for work, which is then put out for bid. Agency crews and private contractors then submit a bid. The contract is awarded to the lowest and/or best bidder.
Fleet Engineering Services is ready, willing, and able to help you with these and many more of your management needs, customized for your agency.
