Operations and Maintenance (O&M)
ASG understands that O&M management is a critical component of the overall program performed to keep equipment and systems running efficiently for at least the design life of the component(s) whether it be hardware, software, or even operational or project components. We can support your management functions in binding the distinct parts of the program into a cohesive entity making up the organization: Operations, Maintenance, Engineering, Training, and Administration. Beyond establishing and facilitating the distinct links, we assist O&M managers in their responsibility of interfacing with other department managers to make their case for ever-shrinking budgets. Our team can assist with defining operations and project implementation functions as well as your needs in maintaining persistence of the program and its goals.

ASG offers a wide variety of service contract types ranging from full-coverage contracts to individual equipment contracts, simple inspection contracts, or an End-Use or End-Result contract, where we not only take over all operation of the equipment, but also all operational risk. In this case, we can provide a designated level of service where we are compensated based on service levels met.
