Management Strategy and
Framework for IAM

Asset Management Interest group
DBSA, MIDRAND

B.A MBENTSE (D: P&S)

14 October 2010

BACKGROUND


This Strategy was developed over a two year period by DWA with
support from several sector partners: National Treasury, the South
African Local Government Association (SALGA), the Department of
Provincial and Local Government (DPLG), the Development Bank of
Southern Africa (DBSA), the Water Research Commission (WRC),
Rand Water and Johannesburg Water.



A national reference group consisting of the above
-
named partners was
established in October 2007 and has given comments and input to this
Strategy.



DWA is leading the actions within each output of the framework,
taking responsibility for those within its power to do so, and working
closely with other national government departments where
responsibility for the envisaged action is statutorily with those
departments.




The Strategy and the Framework is still undergoing the DWA approval
processes for implementation.







APPROVAL DELAYS


Lengthy approval processes


Internal engagements with other units


Clear consultation process


Updating as time was lost


The Water Services Infrastructure
Asset Management Strategy


The
objective

of the National Water Services
Infrastructure Asset Management Strategy is to
achieve the following
outcomes
:



Address service delivery failures in targeted water
services institutions in the short term, and effect
improvements

that can be publicised in order to
demonstrate

the benefits of IAM.



Develop in the water sector in the longer term a
culture

of
sustained improvement

in the
management of water services infrastructure.


DWA ROLE


DWA as
Sector Leader

(principally):


Create an enabling environment for IAM

(including policy, legislation, norms & standards)


Develop a national IAM strategy


Develop a national IAM implementation
framework


Facilitate stakeholder participation & awareness


Provide support, training and mentorship


DWA ROLE


DWA as
Sector Regulator
(principally):


Monitor performance of IAM


service interruptions, service quality, functionality, etc.


Audit compliance to minimum IAM standards:


asset registers, maintenance plan, risk plan etc.


Audit asset values & asset investment plans (with NT)


DWA as
Custodian

of water (principally):


Pollution control, water conservation / leakage control


Cost
-
effective use, licensing etc.


Key principles


Systems approach.

IAM planning must address the full delivery
chain


IAM is a process
-

not a project or an event.


Water services focus.



Outcomes
-
based
. Each strategic priority must be outcomes
-
based,
and outcomes must be measurable.


An appropriate mix of short term successes and long term
sustainability
.


Focus on and prioritisation of the key challenges.
(In Phase 2 of this
project, several hundred challenges were identified.)


Recognition that there is
no “one size solution” that fits “all”;
the
priorities and options differ from institution to institution, and change
with time.
