Facilities Management Evaluation Program (FMEP)
APPA’s Facilities Management Evaluation Program (FMEP) provides institutions with a customized evaluation conducted by a team of institutional peers and based on a comprehensive set of criteria. Institutions receive a written report consisting of feedback and recommended actions which are personalized to each institution and designed to help transform participating educational facilities programs into those worthy of international recognition.
The FMEP Program is conducted in four stages. First, the institution’s facilities team undertakes a self-evaluation, using criteria established by APPA. Afterwards, an onsite evaluation team is organized by APPA which meets with the facilities organization at the institution. While onsite, the evaluation team summarizes its findings in an oral report which it provides to the facilities organization to substantiate its findings and gain clarification. Finally, after the onsite evaluation and oral report, the evaluation team produces a final written report which is then delivered to the institution. Every FMEP conducted by APPA is customized and tailored to the specific institution for which it is conducted. Evaluation teams of experienced senior facilities officers are carefully hand-picked by APPA to conduct each onsite FMEP evaluation. Care is taken to ensure that the evaluation team is comprised of a select group of peers from campuses with similar educational, financial, and physical characteristics.
