Abstract: Lately, among the Dutch Inframanagers the so-called ‘market unless’ strategy has been introduced. This implies that a large portion of the Inframanagers’ activities are to be outsourced towards the subcontractors, such as design, finance, maintain and operate activities of their infrastructural networks. In these public-private-partnerships (PPP) the contractual format is a so-called integral Design Build Finance Maintain and Operate (DBFMO) contract where the duration regularly lasts for 20-25 years. In this case the traditional project controlled (sub-)contractor becomes a long-time services company that not only has to keep the assets available from a technical viewpoint, but also value added services management have to be delivered. All of this has to ensure that functional impediment resulting from services affecting disruptions will be minimized, users will experience an easy, safe and pleasant journey and capital investments will be optimized both from a contractor and a public money viewpoint. The growing demand for robust, sustainable and flexible network solutions that will accommodate for future developments and fast changing operational demands should also be dealt with.
In this paper, an holistic value asset management scheme is introduced to accommodate for both the user values added services and the economic value drivers.
