The aim of the Rijkswaterstaat programme "Asset Management" is to execute the management and maintenance in a structured and univocal way. On behalf of optimal management and maintenance, the area information has to be clear at all times and the supporting systems have to communicate with each other in a transparent and equal way. In the agreed performance contracts, Rijkswaterstaat and the various contractors communicate in the same language, which positively influences the results.
In most of the districts, Ultimo is used as a management system in order to steer the Infra Asset Management in the right direction. The management and execution of performance contracts between Rijkswaterstaat and contractors also take place in Ultimo. The application of Ultimo can be optimized with inspection tools and a GIS application.
