BPA developed the SAMPs and the asset plans in 2017 and 2018. The SAMPs represent a refinement and evolution of the asset management strategies that BPA has been producing for a number of years. They provide a medium to long-term strategic approach that aligns with the goals in the strategic plan. The more detailed and near-term asset plans follow from the SAMPs and guide asset management efforts at a more tactical level.
SAMPs are updated biennially to support the Integrated Program Review cycle.
Note: the expense tables and figures in Section 10.3 in the SAMP are a subset of the total IPR expenses related to Asset Management
