- The impact of deferred maintenance on the performance of public systems,
- The challenges of tracking maintenance needs, and
- What governments can do to improve how they track this issue and prioritize the allocation of resources.
In addition to Mr. Glasgall, the webinar panel included Richard Beck, former Analyst, Program Manager and Office Director, NASA Headquarters and U.S. Department of the Interior; Jay Fountain, Director, Office of Policy and Management, City of Stamford, Connecticut; and Adam Miles (Moderator), Senior Analyst, U.S. Government Accountability Office.
