Strategic asset management for the public sector

This highly interactive event is meant for government officials who know and understand how it feels to have a bad audit report.

Asset Management is a responsibility of all managers within an organisation.
“Assets is money tied up in inventory and buildings. If we don't manage assets like the banks manage and protect their money then the consequences can be disastrous especially in the public sector where governments fixed asset portfolio runs into hundreds and hundreds of billions.” Roland Chebefuh

“Improving the asset management function is difficult - it is not like some things, which you do for three months and that's the project done, and you move on to the next one.
Asset Management is a commitment over a number of years and Improvements should not be seen as a “nice thing to do”. They should be based on sound commercial reasons” Phil Upshell
