Nedlands AMS Review and Development

In 2021 the City of Nedlands recognised the need for a review of the organisational approach to asset management. The City was facing increasing pressures with aging assets, financial limitations, demand for services and other resourcing pressures.

The City engaged Talis in a first stage to appraise its existing AMS wholistically, identify gaps and improvement plan to fill those gaps. This assessment applied the provisions of ISO55001, and included development of a prioritised improvement plan.

Subsequently Talis assisted the City to implement improvements to the asset management system. The City has enthusiastically embraced a concurrent top down and bottom-up approach to improvement involving all levels of the organisation focussing together on a prioritised improvement strategy.

  • Asset Management Documentation (processes and procedures)
  • Asset Hierarchy
  • Asset Data
  • Organisational Review (culture and reporting structure)
  • Governance & Leadership
  • AM Objectives & Service Levels
  • Funding Needs Analysis
  • Human Resource and Training Needs
  • Handover and Capacity Building

Talis adopted a collaborative approach through a series of stakeholder workshops and interviews to investigate the AMS framework a level of adoption across the City and reported the key findings including a presentation to the elected members.
