Recreation Facility Asset Management (RFAM) Success Story - Rural Municipality of Hanover

July 26, 2023 09:00 | Anonymous

The team at the Rural Municipality of Hanover have been searching for a method to track, monitor and evaluate their assets especially with a number of their facilities nearing their end of life. Through their membership with Recreation Manitoba, Bronson Pritchett (Municipal Facilities Coordinator) came to learn about RFAM and the membership benefit that was available. After a few years it was clear that this task was too overwhelming for an organization to complete on their own, especially with the existing load of work staff were dealing with. Dialogue started between the RM of Hanover and the team at Marmak (parent company of RFAM) to have 2 consultants visit Hanover for a week and collect equipment inventory data for all of their recreation facilities and open spaces / grounds. During the Week of June 5th over 350 pieces of equipment were collected with a total value of $37,698,060.85.

The equipment collected had the following condition levels:

Very Good Condition: 45
Good Condition: 202
Fair Condition: 85
Poor Condition: 22
Very Poor Condition: 6

In addition, RFAM automatically developed their FCI (Facility Condition Index) Scores and a 5 Year Plan. All of Hanover's assets have an FCI Score of less than 3% (only 3% of equipment needs to be replaced) which is Very Good. However their EFCI-5 (Extended Facility Condition Index - 5 Year Forecast) Score is 24.39% which means almost a quarter of their assets need to be replaced within the next 5 years. This is an issue the RM of Hanover is aware of but now they have the data and reports to support their decisions and planning process.
