The City of Los Angeles Partners with OpenGov for Data-Driven Infrastructure Asset Management Needs

LOS ANGELES, CA – Officials in the City of Los Angeles, CA had a vision to make more informed decisions regarding asset management. To make this vision a reality, the City has partnered with OpenGov, the leader in municipal asset management software for our nation’s cities. Starting mid-2023, StreetsLA and the Bureau of Street Lighting (BSL) departments will be utilizing OpenGov Cartegraph Asset Management to improve its infrastructure planning processes. 

As the host city for the 2028 Olympics, the City of Los Angeles places great emphasis on readying its infrastructure and resident services for this global event. Partnering with OpenGov is a significant step toward modernizing the City’s asset management capabilities to prepare for the flood of visitors.

StreetsLA manages the largest municipal street network and the largest urban forest in the United States, fulfilling over 160,000 requests for service each year. Before OpenGov Cartegraph Asset Management, StreetsLA performed work on its assets in a disparate manner, using multiple systems and spreadsheet-based workflows. Now, StreetsLA aims to improve its business processes by managing its data in a holistic fashion, automating workflows, and creating insight into asset conditions through better reporting. In addition, OpenGov will integrate with the department’s labor records and rates, 311 requests, and tree work system.

The LA BSL manages over 200,000 street lights, with an additional 2,670 5G devices co-located with those street lights. It manages nearly 500 EV chargers and is actively expanding that inventory. Prior to OpenGov, the LA BSL was using a legacy, in-house system to manage its assets. However, this outdated, on-premise software was far from streamlined and missing accessible data. With the implementation of OpenGov Cartegraph Asset Management, BSL will modernize its data management capabilities and integrate the City’s GIS system to make more informed decisions. Additionally, BSL aims to improve its processes to respond to and manage incidents such as copper wire theft and the theft of electricity from street light assets.

The City of Los Angeles joins more than 1,600 public sector organizations, including Salt Lake City, UT, Pittsburgh, PA, and Colorado Springs, CO,  leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize work processes with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
