Affordable Infrastructure

  • In an uncertain world, are you sure you can afford your infrastructure?
  • We take an in depth look at the point where the asset management and finance disciplines collide.
  • Are your current levels of Infrastructure investment creating future funding gaps?
  • Has your Infrastructure strategy identified issues?
  • Does it align with your finance strategy?
  • How do you tell the story in your Long Term Plan? 

Affordable Infrastructure examines two fundamental aspects, at the intersection of infrastructure asset management and financial management. 1 - what are the gaps (if any) between assessed infrastructure investment, and 2- identified infrastructure spending.

This course covers:

  • Have the gaps been adequately identified and categorised?
  • Where are the gaps?
  • Have we properly identified and categorised asset expenditure (both past and forecast)? How can we address or bridge the gap(s)? Under this aspect the course will look at;
    • Legislative provisions in the LGA 2002 on financial management and infrastructure strategies
    • Good and bad practice for infrastructure strategies
    • Key principles of financial management for infrastructure assets, including renewals and depreciation
    • Twelve funding strategy principles
    • Tactical approaches to funding the gaps
    • Communicating the gap to funding decision makers.
  • We will also look at four types of council profiles and (in case study groups) assess what gaps might be relevant for each type and ways to address the gap.

Who Should Attend?

  • Asset Managers
  • Financial Managers
  • Policy advisors who have a responsibility for infrastructural and financial strategies
