RESERVE STUDY

A reserve study is a long-range capital budget planning tool that identifies qualifying capital assets of a property, along with their cost and life expectancy.  This information is used, along with current financial data, to create a funding plan.  This plan will show the adequacy of existing reserves, future capital expenditures, and the contribution levels necessary to cover these future expenses.

Every reserve study report prepared by Dreux Isaac & Associates includes a comprehensive and detailed component schedule based on local project costs and life expectancy data.  Each report also contains two funding plans (straight line and pooled cash flow) with reliable funding recommendations that will comply with all statutory funding requirements.
