Government Community of Practice

Background

This forum was created in order for AM professionals in government bodies to convene, share, and grow their asset management skills and knowledge. It acts as a single meeting place for government professionals in asset management, bringing together and establishing connections that may have otherwise not been available.

Goals of the CoP

  • Bring together a group of like-minded professionals in government asset management
  • Share knowledge, experiences, and case studies in order to learn
  • Create strategies for implementing and improving current challenges in asset management in government departments
  • Help government bodies develop and enhance their asset management practice starting from the planning phase through to the retirement phase

Key meeting places of the CoP

The Sydney, Peth, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Hobart chapters will each hold government CoP events annually. To enquire about these events, please email the respective chapter chair.
For those who subscribe, a monthly newsletter will be emailed, containing all government-sector news in the asset management sphere.

The state of Queensland’s COVID-19 recovery plan was highlighted in August at the Committee for Economic Development of Australia in a speech by the premier, the Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk.

With a particular focus on uniting Queenslanders in order to build and recover, Ms Palaszczuk spoke of the $51 billion investment into infrastructure to drive the recovery phase. Delivered across a four-year period, the infrastructure guarantee provides a path for industry to confidently invest as well as a means to create sustainable jobs. In this current financial year, this guarantee translates to almost $14 billion investment, directly supporting 44,000 jobs1

The Queensland government is already supporting infrastructure by building better connections between linked communities. Regular readers may be aware that the Asset Management Council has highlighted the upgrading to Bruce Highway, the critical asset that connects locals with regional centres, freight transport with ports and markets, and tourists with pristine destinations. In addition, the transport sector in Queensland is burrowing ahead with the Cross River Rail project, a ten kilometre rail line that includes twin 5.9km tunnels under the Brisbane River. The Cross River Rail project will generate 450 new apprenticeships and traineeships, as well as up to 3000 jobs2

Although Infrastructure assets are for the community and used by the community they also play a critical role in strengthening business confidence, attracting investment, creating new jobs whilst supporting those in existing employment.
