The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed CUPSS as a user-friendly desktop application to promote the integration of asset management activities into utility practices. CUPSS leads users through a series of modules to collect information on the utility's assets, operation and maintenance activities, and financial status to produce a prioritized asset inventory, financial reports, and a customized asset management plan. CUPSS is free software that makes managing assets easier. It is a desktop system, so no Internet connection is needed, and the software requirements are minimal. CUPSS was designed and developed with input and suggestions from a diverse stakeholder group.
