Asset Maintenance Audits

Value for Money

As the number of assets maintained by the Local Government increases - so does the need to have well-defined Operation and Maintenance strategies, clear understanding of expected performance, reliable budget costs to maintain assets and competent teams to support these strategies.

The operation and maintenance of civil assets presents significant challenges for Councils and industry in general. Some excellent solutions have been developed however these experiences are currently not well known within the industry.

Many Local Government infrastructure maintenance contracts are being outsourced.

The assessment of value for money in service delivery is becoming even more important in:

  • Delivering and developing standards of service
  • Meeting community expectations
  • Reducing OPEX expenditure
