National Asset Management Plan

The Ministry has been asked by the Minister of Health to establish a National Asset Management Plan by December 2019.

A dedicated project team at the Ministry is working in partnership with DHBs and other technical experts to achieve this.

Why is a National Asset Management Plan (NAMP) needed?

There is a need for a more standardised and comprehensive approach to prioritise capital investment  This will assist the Capital Investment Committee (CIC) and joint Minister’s to make more informed decisions on capital expenditure.

The NAMP will combine elements from the sector, including:

  • A database holding information on DHBs’ assets:
    • Condition; Fitness for purpose; Demand; Capacity
  • A process and tool to:
    • Manage the information
    • Determine investment forecasts
    • Make informed decisions across the sector
    • Develop a pipeline for future capital investment

The NAMP will give a good overview on the status of facilities across all DHBs.  The plan will be regularly updated.

It will help DHBs to prioritise capital works, and it will provide a national perspective on the issues they face,.

It will also enable the Government to make more informed decisions and to better prioritise remediation work and plan for new facilities.
