WALGA’s Preferred Supply Panel for Asset Management Consultancy Services provides a range of strategic and technical services to support Local Government activities. The service categories that can be purchased under this Panel are:
Valuation (Property & Building): This consulting category is for the provision of Property & Building valuation services. This category of valuation has specific licencing requirements that should be articulated by suppliers.
Valuation (Other): This category is for the provision of asset valuation services, other than Property & Building. This may be used for, but not limited to the asset classes listed below.
Asset Management Planning: This category is used for consulting services for the development of asset management plans and related services, including (but not limited to) defining level of services and risk management. These services may be linked to the development of the Integrated Planning Framework and Fair Value Accounting practices.
Asset Management Condition Assessment: This category is used to provide services relating to the condition assessment of physical assets. This service may include (for example) the evaluation of asset condition and the development of reports to address asset management and remedial actions.
Data Mapping and Reporting: This category is specifically for the development of reporting and/or mapping activities relating to assets. Services delivered under this category are used to represent asset data for better comprehension and management by appropriate stakeholders.
Data management: This category is for the provision of data management services relating to asset data that is stored in one or more Asset Management repositories. This may be provided as a bureau service or using other delivery mechanisms.
Asset Management System Consulting and Support: This category is for the consulting and support specifically relating to the (best practice) utilisation of Asset Management systems.
Technical integrity management: This category is for services relating to the technical integrity of assets that are focused on minimising asset failure and unplanned downtime. Typically this would be for the development of technical integrity plans and associated management techniques rather than the actual assessment of physical assets.
