The Northern Territory Government has dumped the former Labor Government’s $70 million “broken” asset management system, according to a press release from the Minister for Corporate and Information Services, Dave Tollner. The Government was informed that it would cost another $120 million and five years to fix the system which was originally estimated to cost $7.2 million. Professional Services Company KPMG was enlisted to undertake a review of the system finding that remedying it was no feasible. To compensate for the failed system, the Government will implement a network of existing asset management systems called ASNET. It will; consist of three systems:

  • the Asset Information System (AIS);
  • the Roads Information Management System (RIMS); and
  • the Building Asset Management System (BAMS).

The implementation of ASNET is said to create more opportunities for local suppliers.
