Collaboration between Waka Kotahi, local government and the transport sector is essential for the success of the AMDS programme to develop and deliver a national, shared standard for roading asset management.

How is the data standard being developed?

The success of the AMDS programme to develop and deliver a national, shared standard for roading asset management relies on a collaborative effort between Waka Kotahi and the wider local government and transport sector.

Includes:

  • In collaboration with SMEs from maintenance contractors and professional services consultants that include Fulton Hogan, Downer, Higgins and WSP along with representatives from Road Controlling Authorities (RCAs).
  • Developing inventory assets and the management of the asset over its lifecycle (eg faults, conditions, observations, controls) enabling key performance measures to be captured.
  • The published standard is publicly available for Asset Management Solution (AMS) technology providers to use in their AMS systems.
  • Understanding the type and level of support RCAs need to implement the standard, and working with RCA data experts, maintenance contractors and professional services to facilitate rollout of the standard.

Output files

The first release of the standard is now available, this includes inventory along with maintenance faults and conditions. The standard continues to be developed, with future phases being released as identified in the table below.

We will continue to receive feedback on the release version 1.0 of the standard and will review and incorporate changes as part of Tranche 1 implementation, with updates to the release occurring every four months.

For new phases, these will be released as a candidate release and circulated for feedback, we will continue with the four-week review cycle, prior to then incorporating this into the next release version.
