Who Should Own University Buildings?
Mattsson, Jan Ivar
This report outlines important features of a new system for managing university buildings in Sweden with an outlook of building management systems in three other Nordic countries. It explores the changes in managing public buildings and real estate that occurred in Sweden and the structure for the ownership of former public properties that followed. System reform is discussed in governing and funding universities in Sweden that stresses governing by goals and objectives, leaving decision making centered at the institutional level rather than at the governmental level. An evaluation of the current Swedish endeavor is presented, followed by brief discussions of the systems in three other Nordic countries: Finland, Norway, and Denmark. Final comments address the most important common feature of these Nordic systems: to separate the management of the buildings from their use. (GR)
