There is much discussion about the funding gaps or future infrastructural deficits. This course provides clarity on “funding gaps”, and discusses how the infrastructural strategies that were first required to be developed as part of the 2015/25 Long Term Plan, helped define if there is a funding gap. We will also discuss the linkage between the infrastructural and financial strategies, and whether comparing forecast depreciation and renewals is a valid comparison. What are the pitfalls in using this comparison? How can it be used? Funding the Gap examines two fundamental aspects where infrastructure asset management and financial management intersect; what are the gaps (if any) between assessed infrastructure investment, and identified infrastructure spending.
