Room: Ontario A
This series of three one hour presentations on Public Works Management (PWM) will address the concepts of PWM, PWM systems and the OFNTSC / Keewaytinook Okimakanak initiatives. The concepts will introduce the “what” and “why” of PWM. How could PWM benefit your First Nation? The PWM systems section will introduce typical organization charts with job descriptions for a PWM department. This is followed by examples of PWM in First Nations and automated systems to track the work. It will also identify PWM organizations and training possibilities. Part 3 will introduce the OFNTSC / KO initiatives on PWM training, eventually seeking your input to the development of a three day training workshop and PWM plan development.
