Dennis DuPont – Facilitator
SM Stoller – Grand Junction Office
(1) A standardized, documented inspection process that provides accurate, consistent, and repeatable results.
(2) A detailed, ongoing inspection of real property assets, including facilities; infrastructure; and large, in-place nonprogrammatic equipment that is validated at predetermined intervals.
(3) Standardized cost data using CAIS or another nationally recognized cost estimating system to determine repair and replacement costs.
(4) A user-friendly information management system or process that prioritizes current and anticipated maintenance and repair requirements to maximize the utilization of resources (labor and dollar) and return on investment and minimizes the cost of irreversible loss of service life and total penalty cost.
(5) A facility condition assessment program that identifies deficiencies in order to take timely, cost-effective corrective actions. Condition assessments must involve inspections by craft or engineering specialists of all architectural, civil/structural, mechanical, and electrical components of each asset to determine asset deficiencies and must provide a comprehensive evaluation that can be used to make informed facilities management decisions.
(6) Condition assessments must provide for the following.
(a) Inspection of all assets using applicable codes and accepted industry standards.
(b) A tailored approach based on facility status, mission and importance and the magnitude of the hazards within the facility.
(c) A valid estimate of deferred maintenance costs.
(d) A 5-year maintenance plan based on projections of serviceability, economic life, the mission of facilities and projected funding for deferred maintenance reduction.
(e) Identification of safety and health hazards.
(f) Accurate and supportable information for budget planning and justification.
(g) Comparison of conditions and costs between sites and programs.
(h) Supportable cost estimates and funding priorities for General Plant Project (GPP), Institutional General Plant Project (IGPP), line item projects, and other site funded maintenance projects.

Identify the material physical deficiencies and provide suggested remedies, complete with opinions of probable costs.
Both the field observer’s and the assessment reviewer’s statement of qualifications should be provided.
