Facility and asset management

Good management of assets will ensure you understand the full extent and value of your club’s assets. It can extend the life of your assets, help you to understand ongoing maintenance and replacement requirements and help you to plan ways to fund maintenance and replacement costs.

  • Conduct regular and routine facility inspections and risk assessments
  • Develop maintenance plans for facilities and equipment which detail maintenance requirements and estimated replacement dates and costs within your asset register
  • Prepare a facility management plan to ensure the facility is well managed and facility development plans are actioned
  • Ensure your facility is well prepared and can recover quickly during times of disaster with a disaster management plan
