activity management plan (AMP)

An activity management plan prepared in accordance with clause 2 of schedule 10 of the Local Government Act 2002 for approved organisations, or Cabinet Office circular CO (19) 6: Investment Management and Asset Performance in the State Services, for Crown entities (which include the Transport Agency for state highways, and the Department of Conservation). Activity management planning considers the assets in the context of the services they are supporting and clarifies the purpose for holding the asset. The goal of good asset management is to support the delivery of a level of service (whatever the service may be) in the most cost-effective manner, taking long term sustainability into account. Activity management plans should be based on the National Asset Management Steering (NAMS) Group's International infrastructure management manual.
