National Capital Authority – Asset Management Strategy and Framework and ISO 55001 Roadmap

National Capital Authority in Canberra Australia

Cardno was commissioned by the National Capital Authority to develop an updated Asset Management Strategy and supporting Asset Management Framework.

The National Capital Authority manages some of the National Capital's most significant national and cultural landscapes and attractions as custodians on behalf of the Australian Government.

This unique asset base is valued in excess of $900 million and includes assets such as Lake Burley Griffin, Scrivener Dam, the Carillon bell tower, the Captain Cook Memorial Jet, Anzac Parade, public buildings, fountains, national monuments, large areas of landscape infrastructure (gardens, parks, beaches, paths, lighting, and signage) and civil infrastructure (roads, bridges, tunnels, and street lighting).

The project involved a number of consultation activities and the preparation of a number of documents including:

  • Asset management strategy with an asset management framework and strategic road map of improvement initiatives
  • An ISO55000 based asset management maturity gap analysis
  • Asset management plan template
  • Demand forecasting framework
  • Asset condition, criticality and risk management framework
  • Levels of service framework and detailed service standards for each major asset category and establish performance indicators
  • Review of current asset register structure and improvement recommendations.
