Assets in municipalities exist to support service delivery. Accordingly, asset management is seen as central to providing municipal services in a cost effective, efficient and transparent manner. In this regard, Section 152 of the Constitution states that the prime mandate for Local Government is to provide services in a sustainable manner. Furthermore, The Municipal Systems Act in section 4(2)(d) states that a municipality has the duty to strive to ensure that municipal services are provided to the local community in a financially and environmentally sustainable manner. Hence, good asset management facilitates the provision of services in a financially sustainable manner.
