Asset Condition and Reporting System (ACRS)
ACRS is the primary inspection tool used by Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) to monitor First Nations O&M performance objectives and provides a process that identifies asset deficiencies levels In collaboration with CMM member communities, every three years CMM hires an external consultant to inspect only on-reserve community assets that receive ISC operations and maintenance (O&M) funding such as buildings, roads, bridges, water and sewage treatment systems using an ACRS inspection template, which is then submitted to ISC and to the First Nation.
ACRS was implemented nationally in the 1990-1991 fiscal year as a response to the Treasury Board’s request for a better method of determining “asset recapitalization requirements,” rather than being driven by a formula. The Asset Condition Reporting System (ACRS) provides a record of the current condition of their ISC funded assets. This provides the community asset descriptions, asset needs and location of the asset in the community.
