Please help us with a quick survey

APPA’s Body of Knowledge (the BOK) is a searchable, digital database that publishes, updates, and disseminates the foundational content required by facilities professionals at colleges, universities, schools, museums, and other nonprofit, educational organizations. Four content coordinators and APPA staff oversee dozens of writers, editors, and peer reviewers as they revise, update, and enhance the APPA body of knowledge.

The Body of Knowledge is built on the foundation of the four core competency areas identified by APPA:

  • General Administration and Management;
  • Operations and Maintenance;
  • Energy, Utilities, and Environmental Stewardship
  • Planning, Design, and Construction
