Practical Innovations Mark the 2011 Effective & Innovative Practices Award Winners
Facilities Manager, v27 n5 p23-28, 30, 32-33 Sep-Oct 2011
APPA's Effective & Innovative Practices Award continues to highlight the best of the most creative and practical programs and processes that enhance and transform service delivery, lower costs, increase productivity, improve customer service, generate revenue, or otherwise benefit an educational institution. This article features five 2011 award-winning programs which focus on LEED measurement and verification; energy management outreach; a roadways and walkways treatment process; cost-saving lean principles; and laboratory energy retrofits. Up to five Effective & Innovative Practices Award submissions are eligible each year for a cash award of $4,000, generously sponsored since the award's inception by Sodexo Campus Services. Entries are judged by APPA's Professional Affairs Committee and are based on: 1) institutional benefit; 2) innovation and creativity; 3) portability and sustainability; 4) management commitment and employee involvement; and 5) documentation, analysis, customer input, and benchmarking. The five successful schools that received special recognition and a check at the APPA 2011 conference in Atlanta last July are: (1) Georgia Institute of Technology; (2) Medaille College; (3) Purdue University; (4) San Diego Community College District; and (5) University of California Irvine.
