The aim of this topic is to provide managers with a clear understanding of the key principles of asset management. Many government organisations, particularly local goverenment, have substantial physical assets which provide the services that the community expects from government. These assets have specific life cycles, costs and maintenance issues that need to be understood so that the assets can continue to provide services to the community. This requires a moderately challenging planning regime and managers need specific knowledge and skills to efffectively manage the process with good service outcomes for the community.
