About this event

Sustainable delivery of services from infrastructure goes beyond technical management. Sustainability is about maintaining financial capital (money in the bank) and infrastructure capital (the condition of our assets) for the long-term.

Engineers and accountants must work together and talk the same language. Asset Management involves strategic allocation of resources to ensure sustainable delivery of services – it goes beyond asset management to integrated financial planning and reporting. Municipal engineers and public works professionals have a key role to play.

Four presentations:

Beyond Asset Management to the essential broader context of Financial Reporting - Chris Champion, Director International, Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia

In Australia, local governments fully account for the value of infrastructure in their financial statements to reflect how it is being managed. This presentation will present the three pillars for sustainable management of community infrastructure:

  • Stewardship: Understanding our long term responsibilities
  • Asset Management: Managing the existing as well as the new
  • Financial Planning & Reporting: An essential part of business.
