Each year the Ministry prepares a capital programme to ensure the Ministry has
the infrastructure required to fulfil its functions. The draft programme is subject to approval by management. The assets of the Ministry and the capital programme are detailed briefly below.

Property, plant and equipment

The Ministry of Transport operates from two offices, with most staff at the main site in Wellington.
All of its premises are leased, and the majority of the assets owned are computer equipment.

Leasehold improvements

The existing lease on the Ministry’s Wellington premises expires in November 2018. The capital programme includes an allowance of $300,000 in 2018/19 for costs of relocation. This is an estimate, as actual costs will depend on whether the Ministry relocates, and if so what work is needed on new premises.

Computer equipment

The Ministry has a three-to-five-year rolling replacement programme for computer equipment.

Milford Sound/Piopiotahi Aerodrome

The Ministry owns the infrastructure at Milford Sound/Piopiotahi Aerodrome. It has taken steps to ensure this infrastructure is safe and fit for purpose.

Fixtures and fittings

Both of the Ministry’s offices are now fully equipped, following the loss of our premises in the 2016 earthquakes. We continue to make small ongoing purchases of replacement or additional equipment.

Intangible assets

The Ministry has an investment in its own operational systems. A programme is in place to ensure systems continue to be fit-for-purpose. The capital programme includes $1,500,000 for a replacement Finance and Business system in 2018/19.
