Asset Management Guide

This guide contains a series of practical tools to assist with the development of an Asset Management Plan for a facility.

Sport and recreation facilities are integral to our daily lives and we all rely on them to help us to continue our healthy and active lifestyles.  It is now more widely acknowledged that whole of life asset management is critical to sustain a level of service to clients and provide a return to you as the owner or operator of the facility.

We expect our sport and recreation assets to provide specific services at an acceptable level. Whether it is a playing field or a large recreation building, each needs to be managed so that they do what we expect of them.

When you have developed an effective asset management plan you will be ready for a range of eventualities that could affect the future of your asset. It will also give you confidence that you can adapt to the effects of environmental, social and economic factors.

Whether you are in local government or a sporting organisation, this guide will provide you with an appreciation of the benefits of strategic asset management. It will also help you to consider the financial and economic requirements of asset management and the treatment and management of risk and liability.

We have included practical examples and appendices to show you how to apply asset management principles effectively to enable you to continue to provide and maintain key assets with a greater level of sustainability. You can adapt the appendices as needed so they reflect your particular organisation’s needs.
