Virtual Event: Improving Asset Management in Local Government

Ensuring affordable, reliable, and sustainable local government services and infrastructure

Tuesday 2 March 2021
11:00 AM - 1:10 PM AEDT

Agenda Overview:

Each Local Government Area (LGA) manages an abundance of assets, including land, roads and bridges, buildings, plants and equipment, drainage, parks and footpaths, and a variety of other assets. Each asset type requires different short, medium, and long-term maintenance.

However, many councils have been relying heavily on staff knowledge and experience regarding asset management decisions, without supporting this with objective data. To maintain and continuously improve assets across LGAs, efficient asset management is needed to ensure longevity and usefulness for future generations which involves a lot of planning, capturing and analysing of data.

Join us at the Public Sector Network’s complimentary ‘Improving Asset Management in Local Government’ virtual event which will explore strategies to manage all asset classes effectively and deliver services that meet community standards and needs efficiently.
