Asset Management Accountability Framework
The Australian Financial Asset Management Act of 1994 was updated in 2018 and included an Asset Management Accountability Framework. The Financial Asset Management Act set the standard for financial management by Victorian Government Agencies and includes requirements for accountability. The Asset Management Accountability Framework applies to physical and intangible assets required to support delivery of government services. It establishes non-prescriptive requirements for asset portfolio lifecycle asset management that is aligned with ISO 55001. There is much for the U.S. to learn from our Australian colleagues.

Asset Management Definition – By Wikipedia
Good things are happening if Wikipedia mentions ISO 55000 in the definition of “asset management.” There are sentences before these, but asset management is no longer seen as a finance-only activity. “…It is also increasingly used in both the business world and public infrastructure sectors to ensure a coordinated approach to the optimization of costs, risks, service/performance and sustainability. The International Standard, ISO 55000, provides an introduction and requirements specification for a management system for asset management.”
