The Maintenance Services Directorate provides leadership to agencies in the maintenance of their buildings, as well as manages and develop frameworks that coordinate the procurement of maintenance services on a whole of government basis. Services are delivered through a combination of public and private resources statewide.
Maintenance services include the upkeep, repair or replacement of existing building components or minor works that improve the function, safety and/or the appearance of a building.
It should be noted that individual agencies are responsible for ensuring that assets under their control are maintained at an appropriate level. To secure appropriate maintenance funding to meet this obligation, the Department of Finance requires agencies to have a Strategic Asset Plan that includes a Maintenance Plan. These plans are required annually and are an integral part of determining the level of funding allocated to agencies for maintenance.
Clients of BMW Maintenance Services can request a breakdown repair by ringing the Maintenance Call Centre on 132 134.
