Effective asset management across the asset lifecycle is achieved in partnership with the department and health services, in accordance with the Department of Treasury and Finance's Asset Management Accountability Framework.

Our asset management policy outlines our guiding principles and commitment to effective asset management of Victoria’s public health asset base.

Guided by the Statewide design, service and infrastructure plan for Victoria’s health system 2017-2037, this outlines the systems and frameworks that enable the renewal of our asset portfolio and the efficient management of the existing asset base to ensure we realise the full value across the asset lifecycle.

The Strategic Asset Management Plan outlines our strategic framework for the management of the Victorian health system assets in accordance with the Asset Management Accountability Framework.

It has been developed in alignment with our Asset Management Policy and the Department of Treasury and Finance’s Asset Management Accountability framework.
