Commercial and Community Activities
To ensure the health and safety of our contractors, employees and visitors, all contractors are required to complete a 30 minute on-line induction before commencing work on a Parks Victoria managed site.
Asset Information Requirements
The information that supports Parks Victoria’s Built Assets is valuable and needs to be managed effectively to support business needs. The Asset Information Requirements (PDF) document is a guide for designers, construction contractors and project managers responsible for delivering Infrastructure Capital Projects involving alteration, upgrade of existing assets or construction of new park infrastructure. The purpose of this guide is to define what information, formats and data standards are required by Parks Victoria to ensure data is compatible and efficiently captured to be loaded in the Asset Management Information System (AMIS).
