A physical component of a facility which has value,enables services to be provided and has an economic life of greater than 12 months. Dynamic assets have some moving parts, while passive assets have none. IIMM
An asset is an object (physical or intangible) that has an identifiable value and a useful life greater than 12 months, that is or could be used by the entity responsible for it to provide a service. LGAM
Asset - An item with an independent physical and functional identity and age, within a facility (e.g. pump, motor, sedimentation tank, main). Asset - Service potential or future economic benefits controlled by entity as a result of past transactions or other past events. DERM
A plan developed for the management of one or more infrastructure assets that combines multi-disciplinary management techniques (including technical and financial) over the lifecycle of the asset in the most costeffective manner to provide a specified level of service. A significant component of the plan is a long-term cashflow projection for the activities. IIMM
An Asset Management Plan (AMP) is a plan developed for the management of one or more infrastructure asset classes with a view to operating, maintaining and renewing the assets within the class in the most cost effective manner possible, whilst providing a specific level of service." LGAM
Cost is the amount of cash or cash equivalents paid or the fair value of the other consideration given to acquire an asset at the time of its acquisition or construction or, where applicable, the amount attributed to that asset when initially recognised in accordance with the specific requirements of other Australian Accounting Standards. LGAM
Cost (current) - An asset’s cost measured by reference to the lowest cost at which the gross service potential of the asset could currently be obtained in the normal course of events. (Synonymous with ‘gross current cost’.) Cost (replacement) - The cost of restoring an existing asset’s gross service potential on deprival, whether by reproduction of the existing asset or replacement with a reference asset. Cost (reproduction) - The cost of restoring an existing asset’s gross service potential on deprival by reproducing the existing asset. Cost (written down current) - An asset’s current cost less, where applicable, accumulated depreciation calculated on the basis of such cost to reflect the already consumed or expired service potential of the asset DERM
The defined service quality for a particular activity (i.e. roading) or service area (i.e. streetlighting) against which service performance may be measured. Service levels usually relate to quality, quantity, reliability, responsiveness, environmental acceptability and cost. IIMM
The amount for which an asset could be exchanged, or a liability settled, between knowledgeable, willing parties in an arm's length transaction.
Fair Value is "the amount for which an asset could be exchanged, or a liability settled, between knowledgeable, willing parties, in an arms length transaction." This is equivalent to the market value of the asset where one exists. If there is no market the fair value can be determined on a cost of acquisition basis.
Fair Value is the best estimate of the price reasonably obtainable in the market at the date of valuation where a market exists. This is often not the case for existing infrastructure assets, in which case fair value is depreciated replacement cost.
An organisation such as a Local Council that is responsible for the management of infrastructure assets in a defined local area.
A risk is the probability of a failure of an asset as a result of the occurrence of a hazard. There may be a resulting cost associated with the risk.
A system supplying a public need such as transport, communications, or utilities such as electricity and water.
An organisation responsible for providing a service.
The defined service quality for a particular activity (i.e. roading) or service area (i.e. streetlighting) against which service performance may be measured. Service levels usually relate to quality, quantity, reliability, responsiveness, environmental acceptability and cost.
