TAUD, in partnership with TDEC will be hosting training workshops on the Tennessee Infrastructure Scorecard ver. 2.0. The Scorecard is designed to benchmark technical, operational, managerial, and financial performance of utility systems. Results from the Scorecard identify critical needs in several areas including asset management, water, wastewater, and stormwater. Instructors will provide a comprehensive review of how to complete a Scorecard and interpret the results. We will also cover the advantages of completing a Scorecard, including how results can help demonstrate infrastructure needs for loans or grants.

Attendees should prepare to work in class on their utility’s scorecards. Attendees should bring a laptop computer to work through the online scorecard. Please limit attendees to two per utility.
