Mick LoBiancoHead of Certification Program, Assets, Infrastructure & Spatial Data
Port of Melbourne
Up until October 2016 the port of Melbourne was owned by the State of Victoria and managed by the State owned Government Business Enterprise, Port of Melbourne Corporation (PoMC). The State of Victoria leased the port of Melbourne land and assets for a 50 year term on 1 November 2016.
Prior to privatisation PoMC had established a strategic asset management framework for the life cycle management of its built assets. While the PoMC strategic framework was based on commercial principles, it has undergone further transformation and refinement under private ownership.
One of the key Port of Melbourne transformational initiatives is alignment and certification of asset management processes with international Standard ISO 55001 – Asset Management. This is being undertaken as part of a broader Integrated Management System program that also includes alignment and certification with contemporary quality, environmental and occupational health and safety international Standards.
Mick instigated the strategic asset management framework for the former PoMC, was instrumental in the asset management transition during the privatisation process and now heads up the design and development of the PoM Integrated Management System program.
During his presentation Mick will provide a contrasting perspective of the port of Melbourne asset management system before, during and after the privatisation process.
