Asset management is one of the critical aspects of an organisation's governance. Asset management is a structured process that ensures the best value for money is spent on acquiring assets to meet the strategic needs of local authorities. It is similar to any other management function to improve governance competence. Therefore, the performance and quality of service must have a cost balance according to the requirements and regulations in their management.

An asset is a resource controlled by an entity, it is the result of past events and providing future economic benefits or potential services that will flow into the entity. Especially in government agencies, the aim is to manage all forms of capital assets. The awareness of asset management is vital in fixing and improving the existing asset-management system. To avoid wastage, aspects of asset management need to be improved (e.g. maintenance, monitoring, supervision and updating records of government assets).

This sharing session is to comprehensively explain the essence and sectoral dimensions of asset management as a whole.
