ALN 2021 National Issues Series

ALN 2021 National Issues Series

ALN engages the executive function of organizations to initiate and enhance a management systems approach to increase asset value to stakeholders.

This was demonstrated to executives of the U.S. Federal Government and contractors in the ALN 2021 National Issues Series. Program recordings are available at this link.

Starting with established U.S. evaluations by the U.S. Government Accountability Office and the American Society of Civil Engineers, the ALN then followed with commentary and suggestions on paths forward.

The ALN National Asset Leadership Strategy, developed with Grant Thornton, was shown as a first step in addressing many of the issues brought up in the GAO High Risk Report and the ASCE Report Card for America’s Infrastructure. The ALN Advancing Equity with Asset Leadership Committee showed how use of ISO 55000 can address issues identified in Biden Administration Executive Orders. ALN Senior Fellows provided concise insights on how to address sector-specific issues facing the nation.

2021 National Asset Leadership Strategy

2021 National Asset Leadership Strategy

It became obvious that in order gain benefits from a proven, international asset management structure, the U.S. would need a template National Asset Leadership Strategy for legislators and agency executives to adapt in support of their goals and mission success. With the strong support of ALN Organizational Member Grant Thornton, the ALN published a document and presented it to the Biden-Harris Transition Team, just as it presented asset management recommendations to the Trump-Pence Transition Team in 2016.

Advancing Equity with Asset Leadership in 2021

Advancing Equity with Asset Leadership in 2021

In 2020, the ALN prepared the Advancing Equity with Asset Leadership position paper to highlight the value of ISO 55001 4.2 – identifying relevant stakeholders and learning their requirements – and the other places stakeholders are mentioned. While it sounds simple, it is very complex to involve all relevant stakeholders. But President Biden started his Administration by signing the “Executive Order on Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government.” It calls for the White House Domestic Policy Council and the Office of Management and Budget to consider pilot programs and suggest best practices. Consider reading these documents and joining a discussion on how to assist the U.S. Federal Government achieve this mission.

ASCE 2021 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure

ASCE 2021 Report Card for America’s Infrastructure

Every 4 years since 2001 the ASCE has issued an Infrastructure Report Card on the state U.S. infrastructure assets. It’s first Report was issued in 1998. This year, experts graded 17 infrastructure asset categories individually and generated an overall U.S. Infrastructure grade. The overall grade improved to a “C-”.
