In education institutions, funding priorities are often geared toward academics and student programs with little or no consideration for how to adequately operate and maintain the facilities that house these programs. Facilities organizations are left with limited resources to mitigate the growing backlog of deferred maintenance (unfunded liability), in addition to budget reductions that impact staffing, services and other emerging challenges. With the growing loss of institutional knowledge through retirements and staff departure, and challenges filling these positions, the need to prioritize and fund facilities operations can no longer be overlooked. It is time to rethink and to find creative funding options for facilities operations.
Learn how other education institutions are partnering with the private sector to find creative and innovative ways to prioritize and fund facilities operations and maintenance. This can be done by creating a compelling story of associated risk impact with data and by providing the justification to get the much-needed funding and resources to address deferred maintenance, unforeseen challenges, and maximize the life expectancy of your facilities systems.
