  • How will resource allocation decisions be affected by the AMP?
  • How do I set asset performance targets? How can I confirm that performance goals and objectives are being met?
  • What are the long term financial planning considerations?
    • How can I ensure long term affordability?
    • Where are the funding gaps?
