Asset management supports business decisions, providing longer term financial benefits and the most effective means of planning infrastructure works. It is a well-established approach to infrastructure management and is increasingly being applied successfully to all highway assets.
As part of an overall highway asset management approach the UKRLG and ADEPT support the continuous development and application of asset management capability through the joint Asset Management Subgroup. This includes promoting a whole-systems approach to the embedment and continuous development of asset management capability and enablers.
The Highways Asset Management Financial Information Group (HAMFIG) reports into the Asset Management Group. This is chaired by Chris Allen-Smith (email@example.com). For more info on HAMFIG see http://www.leics.gov.uk/index/osp_highways/transport_plans_policies/amp/hamfig.htm
