Campus, capital and IT – a chapter of the 2013 Annual Report of the University of Newcastle, Australia. Includes information projects and sustainability.

Campus, capital and IT

2013 was an exciting year for our Resources Division. We completed a number of major works as well as set the vision for a NeW Space that will transform not only the student experience, but that of staff, researchers and our community and industry partners as well.

Strategic asset management

We continue to increase our asset management maturity with the development of the Strategic Asset Management Governance framework. The framework included the establishment of the Strategic Asset Management Committee (SAMC) and three Asset Management Advisory Groups themed around Education, Research and Innovation and Campus Environment.

In 2013, the Asset Management Advisory Groups identified their priority focus areas for investment and the SAMC supported those recommendations. The next step is the development of detailed strategies to ensure the University has the right facilities and infrastructure to deliver services to its staff and students. 

The increased and ongoing focus on strategic asset management activities will ensure our investment into physical infrastructure supports the strategic planning objectives, is sustainable and is consistent with best practice.
