Roads Minimum Maintenance Standards Gap Analysis – Town of Lincoln, Beamsville, ON
UEM Professionals facilitated a Gap Analysis with representatives of the Town of Lincoln’s Public Works Department to assess the existing level of compliance with Ontario Regulation 239/02, Minimum Maintenance Standards for Municipal Highways (MMS). The Gap Analysis involved a review of relevant Town procedures and documentation, as well as on-site interviews with Town staff to confirm that procedures are implemented as written and to identify related undocumented procedures. The resulting study report identifies current documented and undocumented practices, gaps and exceedances in MMS compliance, and recommended activities that the Town can take to move toward MMS compliance, streamline operations, and ensure good record–keeping practices.

In completing these audits, UEM’s project scopes have ranged from completion of selected, assigned audits as part of the client’s Internal Audit Team to full planning, execution and documentation of the audit. UEM’s DWQMS Auditors act as internal auditors for each client, and therefore strive to bring value to the audit process; as such, our Auditors are known for their detailed audit reports and their identification of improvement opportunities and best practices in addition to the simple assessment of conformance.
