Financial and Asset Reform Project
Local Government is committed to the long term management of assets and services in a sustainable way and at a level acceptable to the community without unplanned rate rises or disruptive cuts.
The Local Government Financial and Asset Reform Project is managed by the LGAT and aims to develop and implement long term financial and asset management frameworks in all Tasmanian councils. The project is a partnership between the State and Federal governments and LGAT and is funded through the Commonwealth's Local Government Reform Fund.
Expected outcomes of the project include:
- a long term financial planning template;
- long-term financial plans implemented in all councils;
- asset management plans for major assets in all councils; and
- guidelines and training for elected members.

Sustainability Objectives and Indicators Project
The Local Government Sustainability: Objectives and Indicators project is a joint State Government and Local Government project that is overseen by the Premier's Local Government Council (PLGC).
A consultation process has commenced seeking input on three key components of the project:
- the key strategic priorities to be measured
- the desired outcomes under each key strategic priority
- indicators and targets that can appropriately measure the key strategic priorities and outcomes.
A discussion paper and series of workshops represent the first phase of consultation during August and September 2010.
