The Total Asset Management Plan framework allows for the development and improvement of business practices to the best appropriate practice by incorporating management processes, information systems and adequate reliable data.
People Issues
This element looks at the way in which the organization treats the people or human resource issues associated with best practice asset management and the organization's knowledge of its individual staff skills and general age profile of staff within the asset management area.
Organizational Issues
Under this element we assesses the way in which the organizational structure, roles and responsibilities support or assist the life cycle asset management functions. It looks at the way in which the overall organization is working towards its goals/vision and looks at the overall commitment and sustainability of the whole program in both Asset Portfolio and whole of Business terms.
Commercial Tactics
This looks at the commercial tactics employed in the completion of the works identified by the life cycle processes and practices. It looks at the way in which the organization ensures the lowest unit costs for the key activities involved in asset acquisition, creation, operations and maintenance or renewal.
Information Systems
The prime purpose of implementing asset management systems is to derive the resulting benefits from those systems to the organizations involved. Therefore it is essential to continually refer to the benefits we are trying to derive, to collect data and implement that data into the systems so we derive the benefits that are potentially available to the organization.
Data and Knowledge
Life cycle asset management will involve the implementation of systems that enable the effective management of assets in long-term strategic planning functions as well as the day-to-day effective operation and maintenance of those assets.

Sustainable Best Value Service Delivery
A quality framework is the ability to review and assess our performance against a known practice (e.g. world's best practice) against other similar organizations.

Using the gap between our current status and world's best practice we can determine a 'best appropriate practice' (BAP) target for our organization, based on the benefits that this will bring

By following this BAP process and applying accurate data, the organization can prove to its stakeholders and customers that it is delivering 'best value service delivery'.
