ASSET DISPOSAL STRATEGY 2006 - 2009
The Asset Disposal Strategy allows an agency to cull redundant assets that might otherwise reduce
efficient and effective service delivery. The strategy involves two separate and distinct elements – the
detailed assessment of assets identified as surplus and the analysis of the physical disposal of an asset.
The services we deliver are outlined in our Corporate Plan, Results and Services Plan and Team
Business Plans. They are also summarised in our Asset Strategy.
ASSETS SURPLUS TO SERVICE DELIVERY
We regularly review our asset register, identifying those assets that are no longer required. Surplus
assets are disposed through a number of means including auction, donation to charities or destruction.
Our surplus assets identified and disposed of in 2005-2006 were due to technological obsolescence.
Currently we do not have a significant number of surplus items on our asset register. As well, with most
of our assets purchased in the last three years, we do not anticipate any significant disposal activity over
the life of this strategy.
