Primary sources included survey questionnaires and interviews with relevant managers of all business units involved in life cycle asset management within DPW. The population was subdivided into three levels of management Chief Directors, Directors, Deputy Directors. Stratified random sampling identified a total of 30 out of a total population of 80 managers from the four units.
A total of 27 completed questionnaires were received and analysed. Findings The study established that the roles and goals of the different business units are not properly aligned to strategic goals of the department. The asset register in the department was not updated. It is recommended that DPW should ensure that it addresses the gaps in the asset management systems, policies, skills and asset management planning in the department to ensure compliance.
Practical implications. Implementation of the recommendations should contribute to the optimization of the fixed assets owned by the South African government and to service delivery to User Departments.
