Property Maturity Assessment Program (PMAPTM)
LMI’s PMAP™ capability is an independent assessment approach (based on the ASTM International Standard E2452-12(2019), “Equipment Management Process Maturity Model”) that can mitigate the risk of failure. As a comprehensive analysis method, PMAP™ collects objective and subjective data. It uncovers the weaknesses and risks in the management of government property before the next audit and, more importantly, before the next emergency. Analysis of existing supply chain risks can provide even deeper understanding.
Using a weighted average of all maturity measures for each subcomponent, PMAP™ assigns a maturity level, or score. The figure below describes each level of maturity from the basic level—knowing what you have (Level 1)—to the advanced level—having the knowledge to make decisions that improve operations and support long-term planning and mission validation (Level 5).
Fostering Confidence in Crisis Response
The delivery of inoperable ventilators illustrated two lessons:
- The importance of property management must be appreciated and receive enterprise-wide support, including agency leadership. It’s not merely a financial reporting compliance issue—it can make a difference in saving lives.
- An independent assessment by highly qualified subject matter experts can ensure an organization understands the strengths, weaknesses, and risks of its property management system.
LMI has the subject matter experts to implement PMAP™ and identify ways to strengthen property management readiness. These insights are essential, whether the mission is supporting ongoing operations or responding to an unplanned event. By developing more reliable information about the availability and condition of property and supplies, organizations can be more effective and have greater confidence in crisis response.
