Government Community of Practice


This forum was created in order for AM professionals in government bodies to convene, share, and grow their asset management skills and knowledge. It acts as a single meeting place for government professionals in asset management, bringing together and establishing connections that may have otherwise not been available.

Goals of the CoP

  • Bring together a group of like-minded professionals in government asset management
  • Share knowledge, experiences, and case studies in order to learn
  • Create strategies for implementing and improving current challenges in asset management in government departments
  • Help government bodies develop and enhance their asset management practice starting from the planning phase through to the retirement phase

Key meeting places of the CoP

The Sydney, Peth, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Hobart chapters will each hold government CoP events annually. To enquire about these events, please email the respective chapter chair.
For those who subscribe, a monthly newsletter will be emailed, containing all government-sector news in the asset management sphere.
The Government Community of Practice forum Forum.

Currently in development, the Asset Management Council is preparing a white paper to build a Community of Practice (CoP) for the Australian government sector...

The proposed CoP would act as a gathering point for sharing industry-related information and strategies among government entities. In practice, there will be multiple government-sector CoP groups across the country so that information can be linked and exchanged easily.

The overall goals of the program are to:

- Identify, gather and seek agreement on asset management requirements
- Provide a forum for cooperation of activities where asset management adds value to existing initiatives
- Identify opportunities for collaborating on strategic and technical projects
- Provide an informal point of contact for addressing specific benefits that affect multiple organizations
- Further develop the Asset Management Body of Knowledge

The implementation of this initiative will lead to improved asset management from government bodies, as well as a significant return on investment for their practices.

Gopi Chattopadhyay, Andrew Sneesby and Robert Sloan are leading this initiative from the Asset Management Council chapters, supported by our Project Manager, Mo Barghash. If you would like to register interest, or provide comments, please contact us at
