Case Study – Royal Women’s Hospital Melbourne: Asset Management Accountability Framework (AMAF) Gap Assessment

With a history dating back over 160 years as the first hospital in Australia for women who were pregnant, vulnerable and often destitute, the Royal Women’s Hospital is Australia’s largest specialist hospital dedicated to improving the health of all women and newborns. Each year the Royal Women’s Hospital provides in excess of 250,000 episodes of care for women from 190 countries, who speak 96 different languages and follow 70 separate religious faiths, in a range of comprehensive services from health promotion to clinical expertise and leadership in maternity, gynaecology, women's cancer services and in the specialist care of newborns. The overarching goal of the Royal Women’s Hospital is that patients and consumers are at the heart of everything they do.

In February 2016, the Department of Treasury and Finance introduced the Asset Management Accountability Framework (AMAF) designed to assist Victorian Public Sector agencies manage their asset portfolios and provide better services for Victorians.   The AMAF is aligned with ISO 55001, the international standard for asset management, but has some additional and different requirements to meet the specific needs of the Victorian Government

Standing Directions from the Victorian Minister for Finance mandated the application of the AMAF to all Victorian Public Sector agencies with attestation required in compliance reporting for the 2017‑18 financial year. As a Public Sector agency, the Royal Women’s Hospital sought to determine their level of compliance with the AMAF requirements and what actions would be needed to close any gaps.
