Asset management competence framework

Asset management cover_FINAL_small.jpg

The road network is a vital and valuable asset for the UK – both economically and socially.


It is important that this vital asset is managed by competent professionals in accordance with the latest Code of Practice (Well-managed Highway Infrastructure).

The UK Roads Liaison Group Asset Management Board, with support from Transport for London and the Department for Transport, has commissioned a framework to provide a robust and consistent method of managing the skills, competences and training requirements of all those who contribute to asset management.

The framework has been developed by Atkins with feedback incorporated from the UKRLG Asset Management Board, highway authorities, training providers, and professional institutions. It is aligned with the Code Practice and ISO 55000, will support adoption of a risk-based approach, and will help authorities quickly identify competence gaps and target training for their staff. An Excel-based tool has also been developed to help with tracking competences and development action plans.
