In order to make informed decisions about the allocation of resources, infrastructure asset managers, financial managers, politicians and ultimately, the customer, all need useful information. Asset management is a resource allocation tool that provides the information municipalities need to make decisions on how they will build, operate, maintain, renew and replace an asset over the asset's useful life. Asset management plans identify the technical and financial needs of municipal infrastructure and provide information well in advance of a major asset renewal or replacement. This enables a municipality to plan for major projects, should other factors (financial, political etc.) align.

The need for such a management plan can be evidenced by the critical role that infrastructure plays in a municipality. A municipality's health can be measured by the quality of its infrastructure, which in turn promotes economic development, ensures citizen's safety and provides a higher quality of life for its society.
