EMMS Governance

The success of Enterprise Maintenance Management System (EMMS) is dependent on participation and input from across the university community involved in maintenance, asset and inventory management activities.

EMMS governance is aligned with UBC’s existing governance structure to ensure decisions related to budget, resourcing and program scope adhere to university policies, risk management, financial controls and compliance.
