Buckinghamshire Highways Asset Management Strategy 2021
Effective asset management and its implementation relies on systems to support decision making. The right systems coupled with well-maintained and audited data are key to reporting and monitoring of asset performance, the efficient delivery of services and best use of natural resources.
Buckinghamshire Highways (BH) will continue to utilise and maintain sustainable IT systems necessary to deliver the Asset Management Strategy and will continually review the adequacy of those systems. Data is currently held centrally in the AMIS or, where required, on separate systems with links and processes to ensure that any shared data is maintained across systems. Access and editorial rights to the data are controlled centrally through strict login and password protocols.
The data held in the system includes:
- Customer Contact data and correspondence
- Street Gazetteer and Network information
- Asset data and parameters
- Inspection records
- Condition information
- Works Ordering and completion
- Maintenance histories
Asset data will continue to be managed in accordance with the Highway Infrastructure Asset Data Management Plan (ADMP). The ADMP is a data catalogue of the information held and will be used to identify future inventory collection priorities that will be required to inform the Business Planning process. It records the controls and processes for updating and maintaining the data held. The ADMP ensures that BH has sufficient inventory information to comply with the Whole of Government Accounts valuation requirements.
