Management of investment needs, while meeting regulatory and other goals, has required:

         critical assets
        Improved management systems
        Improved accounting for costs and benefits and their incorporation within an appropriate
         cost-benefit framework
        Incorporation of risk management techniques
        Utilisation of advanced maintenance techniques including new rehabilitation failure detection
