A growing number of educational institutions have discovered that a guided self-assessment solution helps them to consistently and cost-effectively obtain facility condition information and make better-informed capital planning decisions. Facility self-assessment employs a consistent, repeatable process for internal staff to quickly assess assets of all types. The self-assessment process is rapid, comprehensive and facilitates the development of quick budgetary estimates. A facility self-assessment also enables low-cost maintenance of data captured in previous assessments to ensure that strategic decisions are based on factual information. Self-assessment empowers institutions to close the loop on portfolio knowledge gaps and gain immediate insight into their most pressing facility needs. Numerous educational institutions, including the Maine Department of Education (DOE), the University of Texas at Austin and James Madison University, have adopted the self-assessment methodology.
