A delegation from the University of Sharjah (UoS) recently visited the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai to review the best practices adopted in asset management starting from the stage of planning for the procurement of new assets and several other stages such as tracking, stocktaking, numbering and replacing of assets. Visitors also learnt about the features of the system adopted by the department for monitoring RTA’s assets according to excellent standards.
Abdul Rahman Al Janahi, Director of Assets Management, RTA’s Strategy and Corporate Governance Sector, welcomed the visiting delegation, saying that the RTA is always keen to foster relations with various entities including academic institutions like universities and colleges. “In particular, RTA seeks to share expertise and knowledge in fields of relevance to asset sustainability, considering it a wealth and a capital ought to be preserved and optimally maximised.
“During the gathering, we gave visitors a full account of RTA’s asset management practices, procedures and future plans, especially that we work as a team to improve performance, and achieve sustainability of key assets in order to ensure the continuity of services. RTA owns a diverse cast of assets such as roads, bridges, tunnels, metro, buses, taxis, and marine transit modes among others, and had charted out plans for their sustainability for years to come,” said Al Janahi.
