APPA 1000-1 Total Cost of Ownership for Facilities Asset Management (TCO) – Part 1: Key Principles [PDF] APPA 1000-1 Total Cost of Ownership for Facilities Asset Management (TCO) – Part 1: Key Principles [PDF].
Author: APPA

This standard establishes the foundational elements and structure required to implement the principles of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).  TCO is a transparent, holistic, and efficient approach to asset management and resource allocation.  This standard outlines the process for owners and managers of built assets to produce the greatest possible return on investment and allows for effective use of limited resources.  This TCO l standard is designed for Owners, Financial Operators, and Facility Professionals.  This TCO standard has a focus on critical data elements needed to make well-timed, current, and predictive decisions.  This common framework would support forecasting investment needs, and simplify data decision requirements by supporting creation and utilization of standard data set, for purposes of maintaining a financially sustainable future for all asset investments.  This standard is comprised of two parts: (1) Key Principles (this document), and (2) Implementation (separate).  Making the TCO standard a part of the way your business and management process treats investments and asset management is an important step in the stewardship of any organization’s capital assets.

Business Case for Renewable Energy, The Business Case for Renewable Energy, The.
Author: Andrea Putman & Michael Phillips

Colleges and universities are saving money and even making money with renewable energy, which includes solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, and hydropower. They can either build a renewable energy project on or near campus, or they can buy renewable electricity generated by others through a local utility or other supplier. This book examines both approaches and explains how and why growing numbers of higher education institutions are powered by renewable energy. It provides guidance on how to consider the various technologies, ownership options, relationships with utilities, and financial strategies.

Charting a New Course for Campus Renewal [PDF] Charting a New Course for Campus Renewal [PDF].
Author: Rod Rose

In April 1998 a powerful conference brought together representatives from the public universities of New Mexico to discuss the serious problem of capital renewal and deferred maintenance of the state's campus facilities. Speakers included Harvey Kaiser, Doug Christensen, Chris Christofferson, Ron Hicks, John Bruning, Wayne Leroy, and Val Peterson, as well as representatives of New Mexico's Commission on Higher Education and other organizations. Author Rod Rose has summarized the valuable presentations and insights garnered at the New Mexico Higher Education Symposium on CRDM, which are easily applicable to other states or systems. The book first establishes the context which led to this gathering of experts, then provides a set of common vocabulary from which to speak. Several planning models are presented and various financing options discussed. Included are policy and funding implications, lessons learned, and approaches for future collaborations at the state and national levels.

Cleanliness and Learning in Higher Education [PDF] Cleanliness and Learning in Higher Education [PDF].
Author: Jeffrey L. Campbell, principal author, and Alan S. Bigger, APPA Fellow, principal investigator

This national study of college students determined there is a correlation between the cleanliness of a school’s facilities and students’ academic achievement. Conducted through the Center for Facilities Research (CFaR) at APPA – the association promoting leadership in educational facilities – and co-sponsored by ISSA, the study was based around the five levels of clean identified in APPA’s Custodial Staffing Guidelines for Educational Facilities. Of the 1481 students polled, 88 percent reported that the lack of cleanliness becomes a distraction at APPA Level 3 (Casual Inattention) and Level 4 (Moderate Dinginess). Eighty-four percent reported that they desire APPA Level 1 (Orderly Spotlessness) or Level 2 (Ordinary Tidiness) standard of cleanliness to create a good learning environment. Cleanliness ranked as the fourth most important building element to impact the students’ personal learning.

Thought Leaders Report 2015: Facilities & Technology: The Transformation of Thought Leaders Report 2015: Facilities & Technology: The Transformation of "Campus" [PDF].
Author: APPA

Educational institutions that master new technologies will have an edge in the increasingly competitive higher education landscape.  They will better serve learners and support instructors, and they'll make smarter use of limited resources and advance the safety and sustainability of the institution.  APPA's 2015 Thought Leaders report discusses the factors related to integrating technology and the campus built environment; using technology to enhance critical campus functions; and integrating facilities management and information technology.

New technology will require new skills and new approaches to day-to-day tasks. The result will be a new campus for a new era, which will need to address the following needs:

  • Restructuring the facilities management organization to effectively integrate new technology
  • Crafting policies that enhance facilities/IT integration
  • Creating successful facilities/IT integration
  • Preparing the facilities professional of the future
  • Imagining the IT/facilities integration of the future: where we are going

The report includes a contextual introduction, a comprehensive section on using technology to enhance key campus functions, questions for further discussion, a lengthy resource section, and a list of participants.  Sponsored in part by Jacobs.

Thought Leaders Report 2016: Remaking the Facilities Organization Thought Leaders Report 2016: Remaking the Facilities Organization.
Author: APPA

The 2016 Thought Leaders symposium, supported in part by long-time sponsor Jacobs, focused on Remaking the Facilities Organization. The report makes the case for a customer-centric higher education facilities organization. Experts provide their insights on how a focus on the customer provides a framework for driving change. The benefits of a customer-centric focus include empowered employees, better alignment between the mission of the facilities organization and the mission of the institution, and improved stewardship of campus systems and resources. The report examines in detail how a customer-centric focus can be applied to the four major responsibilities of educational facilities organizations: 1) general administration and management; 2) operations and maintenance; 3) energy and utilities; and 4) facilities planning, design, and construction. The report defines goals within each of these areas and suggests strategies for facilities leaders to achieve them.

Thought Leaders Report 2017: Transforming Facilities to Achieve Student Success [PDF] Thought Leaders Report 2017: Transforming Facilities to Achieve Student Success [PDF].
Author: APPA

 The 2017 Thought Leaders report focuses on Transforming Facilities to Achieve Student Success. Student success starts with retention and graduation, but it can expand to include factors from personal career goals to social responsibility. A key message from the report is that through strategic investment in their facilities, colleges and universities can support student success, position the campus for the future, and serve as good stewards of campus assets. The report also stresses that the process must reflect the mission and vision of the campus, thus making the greatest impact possible on the college or university’s goals.

All Thought Leaders reports are free, thanks to the generosity of sponsors Jacobs, and Johnson Controls.

Author: APPA
Risk, looks at enterprise risk management (ERM) from both a campus-wide perspective as well as how risks affect the facilities organization in its support of the institution. In assessing all types of risks to the institution--strategic, financial, operational, compliance, and reputational--the Thought Leaders symposium participants identified six major risk areas that must be considered for their campuses:
 
* Revenue and investments
* Brand and reputation
* Health and safety
* Innovation
* Facilities
* Changing political/cultural environment
 
Many thanks to sponsors Jacobs and Johnson Controls for their generous support.
