Guidebook on Real Property Asset Management for Local Governments

March 26, 2012

Abstract

This guidebook is designed to assist local governments on making initial steps for improving management of municipal land and build-up property, within a better-governance and better-practice framework. While this edition reflects some specifics of municipal land and asset management in Central and Eastern Europe and other former centrally-planned economies, it contains main elements that can be useful for local governments elsewhere. The guidebook covers 14 different activities, from how to get organized for a systematic effort to improve asset management, to issues of land and property inventorying, land management, financial analysis of properties and portfolios, and comprehensive asset planning.
