ICT Asset Management

Purpose:
The purpose of ICT Asset Management is to strengthen administrative procedures in ICT procurement, disposal and enable better control in managing campus ICT assets.

All ICT assets must be managed in the centralized asset management system.

ICT assets are defined as equipment with central processing unit such as servers, network appliances, network storage devices, photocopier, scanner, computers, mobile devices, media player, digital cameras, audio-video recorders, large screen displays, projectors, amplifier, video or audio control units, including, but not limited to, software, functional support equipment and structure that are considered, part or as a whole, ICT solution.

Centralized Asset Management System (CAMS):
CAMS is a common tool for Academic Groups, Programme Offices and Departments in National Institute of Education.
This system can be accessed via NIE Portal → Quick Links → Centralised Asset Management System.

CAMS is based on a framework that consists of 5 phases of lifecycle of ICT assets — Planning, Acquisition, Deployment, Management and Retirement.

It encompasses the 3 guiding principles of Integrity, Visibility and Standardization:
  • Integrity ensures the asset information are accurate and consistent.
  • Visibility provides accountability of asset through real-time management.
  • Standardization ensures all asset owners and users are using a common tool comprising regulated processes that comply to our best practices and policies on asset management.
