APPA's Effective & Innovative Practices Award recognizes programs and processes that enhance service delivery, lower costs, increase productivity, improve customer service, generate revenue, or otherwise benefit the educational institution. Entries can describe either a new program or significant restructuring of an existing program or process.
Projects displaying a high level of innovation and adaptability/transferability for implementation at other schools have the best chance of being favorably ranked.
Up to five ranked submissions will be eligible for a cash award of $4,000, thanks to an ongoing generous sponsorship provided by Sodexo. Winning entries will receive special recognition at APPA's annual conference and in Facilities Manager magazine.
Entries are judged on a point system based on:
- Institutional Benefit (100 pts)
- Innovativeness, Creativity, and Originality (300 pts)
- Portability and Sustainability (300 pts)
- Management Commitment and Employee Involvement (150 pts)
- Documentation, Analysis, Customer Input, and Benchmarking (150 pts)
