Facilities Manager, v29 n4 p30,35 Jul-Aug 2013
The California State University (CSU) system is the largest higher educational system in the United States. The system has physical assets valued at more than $20 billion (current replacement value) on the "State" side of the house alone. With over 1,200 buildings, and 50 million square foot of mixed-use space, the CSU facility managers have an enormous responsibility, in addition to extremely high expectations from the stakeholders. This article explains how the CSU facilities professionals and administrative staff use the APPA Facilities Performance Indicators (FPI) survey and report for decision making, forecasting, justification of funding levels, and quality improvement.
