This proposed research is about identifying those governance arrangements for large engineering infrastructure assets which will assist in obtaining the best possible asset management results for the community. In Australia there is strong focus on providing additional infrastructure to meet the demands of long term population change, heightened economic activity, increased export volumes and population growth. Simultaneously existing assets are not being maintained. The Engineers Australia Report Cards show a concerning picture of infrastructure standards predominantly at levels below “very good” and in need of increasing attention to ensure they remain “fit for purpose”.
