Utility GIS data as inventory for accounting in local government

Has anyone used their GIS utility data as an inventory for calculating a dollar value in a local government accounting system?  I've just finished converting our utility system (water, sewer, storm) into a GIS format, and we now have a very accurate inventory of our pipe system in terms of length, diameter, material, and age.  What we found is that our city has more pipe than we thought (about 1.5 times more), and consequently we suspect that we've been under-reporting the value of the assets.  Has anyone somehow valued their utility systems based on GIS data?
