Capital asset management tools and templates

We have developed draft tools and templates to help tertiary education institutions (TEIs) improve their capital asset management systems and processes.  These tools are intended to be used as internal planning documents to help tertiary education institutions internal operations and reporting.

Based on experience from other sectors and industries, we believe these tools will be very useful for anyone that chooses to integrate them into their CAM planning.

The tools are editable so that users can amend them for their own use. TEIs are encouraged to share models of best practice with each other and to work with asset management specialists to develop and improve upon these tools.

The four tools are:

  • Service Justification Spreadsheet (Excel, 135 Kb) - an internal planning document to help tertiary education institutions document and describe the education service justification for capital investment.
  • Asset Management Plan (Word, 1 Mb) - a template planning document which helps to articulate an institution's asset management planning and purchasing intentions for the foreseeable future.
  • Asset Management Standard (PDF, 1 Mb) - a standard developed in association with asset management experts for reviewing CAM in wānanga and institutes of technology and polytechnics.
  • Exemplar Improvement Plan (PDF, 1 Mb) - an exemplar improvement plan developed by an external asset management experts based on the standard above.

Please note these tools are open source but that the intellectual property belongs to TEC and should be acknowledged as such.
