Government Departments face significant challenges in the selection of investments and in prioritising those investments.
These large portfolios require sophisticated total asset management systems and strong processes supporting program and grant administration. There is a strong focus on customer service and value for money for the community and major efforts are being made in developing culture to support agency purpose.
Portfolio Departments with large asset bases require best practice asset maintenance, services and operations and capital investment program administration to deliver services effectively and efficiently and to keep their assets in a ‘fit for purpose’ condition. Good governance requires these Departments to continually adapt and adjust their organisations and processes to improve the quality of services and cost-efficiency.
