  • IPWEA (NSW) Division Regional Groups well positioned to assist Joint Organisations

    Mr Gary Woodman, Vice President of IPWEA NSW, has recently assisted in the delivery of a series of Workshops across New South Wales in collaboration with the Office of Local Government on Special Schedule 7 – Implementation of Infrastructure Assets as at 30th June 2016.
    These workshops were highly successful with over 370 attendees made up of Council Engineers and Finance staff and Officers from the NSW Audit Office. The Workshops gave the opportunity for local government council officers, whether they were Engineers or Finance staff to discuss the changes to Special Schedule 7 for 2015/2016 and the issues surrounding consistency of information to be entered into the Schedule across the industry and of course how to ensure this information remains useful.
    Mr Woodman said “A consistent message or request from industry was that to ensure that there was best practice benchmarking of the information to be utilised by Special Schedule 7”.
    “With a strong regional network across the whole state, the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia (NSW) Division is well placed to assist in providing expertise at a regional level”.
    Mr Woodman added “Public works engineers need to commence professional discussions at IPWEA Regional Groups for such important matters as:
    • Useful Life of Assets/Depreciation Schedules
    • Asset Conditions Assessment
    • Maintenance and Operational Activities determination
    • Renewal and Rehabilitation Activities determination
    • Determination of typical required asset maintenance and their costs, and
    • Levels of Service to be set by Council/Community and the required community engagement mechanisms”
    The IPWEA NSW Division Board and Asset Management Panel will be encouraging these necessary professional discussions at the IPWEA Regional Group level over the next couple of months..
    “IPWEA will be encouraging a regional approach that will lead to uniformity of information input at Regional and then on a State basis to ensure consistency of information and methods at individual councils". Mr Woodman concluded.
