Asset Management Accountability Framework (AMAF) attestation in 2018

AMAF attestation in 2018 – what you need to know

Assessing asset management maturity is fundamental in evaluating the current state of an organisation’s asset management system and provides a focus for future improvements to enhance asset value and deliver more for stakeholders while balancing cost, risk and performance. In 2018, many Victorian organisations are now required to publically attest to the maturity of their asset management practices.

In 2016, the Victorian Department of Treasury and Finance introduced the Asset Management Accountability Framework, which applies to any organisation managing public sector assets. Under the AMAF, 2018 is the first year where Accountable Officers must publicly attest to their compliance to the framework and outline improvement plans to reach their target future state. A maturity assessment is the key input to making a confident attestation and demonstrating improvement year to year.

KPMG has extensive experience in assessing asset management maturity across a range of industries and supporting clients in prioritising investments to enhance asset value and business performance through aligning to relevant best practice. We support organisations to meet the AMAF requirement in two ways:

  1. Providing a cloud-based software solution to allow organisations to self-assess.
  2. Providing Certified Asset Management Assessors (CAMA) and experienced consultants to independently assess the organisation's asset management system.

Software Based Self-Assessment

KPMG’s cloud-based asset management assessment tool allows organisations to conduct AMAF self-assessments.  Our software reduces compliance effort by providing a guided process and automated report generation.  Each result can be traced back to the evidence supplied by each stakeholder.  Organisations can define their end state and repeat the assessment to monitor progress. This simplifies the attestation process and provides an evidence based, defendable result enabling performance to be tracked over time. Find out more about KPMG’s Asset Management Business Assessor.

Objective Assessment

Our experienced and certified consultants work to assess organisations’ compliance against the AMAF and can extend the assessment to include ISO55000, Global Forum on Maintenance and Asset Management, Institute of Asset Management and industry best practice.  We assist with identifying the required tasks to meet compliance and help build an improvement initiatives roadmap for the organisation.  We can populate our results into a software tool that allows the organisation to track its progress against the roadmap.
