VFA Helps School Systems Obtain Funding for Facilities
BOSTON—September 21, 2012—VFA, Inc., the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, today announced it will be featuring its facility self-assessment solution, VFA.auditor® at the Council of Educational Facility Planners International (CEFPI) World Conference, September 22-24, 2012, in San Antonio. VFA will be exhibiting in Booth 144.
Public school systems face many challenges in managing and planning for their school facilities. Some are under mandate by legislatures to demonstrate equitable distribution of funds across school districts. Most work under funding constraints that force difficult tradeoffs in decisions regarding maintenance and renewal of their facilities. VFA helps school systems at the district, county and statewide level to meet these challenges by developing long-range plans, demonstrating the need for funding and creating capital budgets.
VFA.auditor offers facility managers an efficient and cost-effective way to get reliable facility condition data and prioritize identified issues. It provides users with surveys to assess and rapidly collect data about the condition of facilities and major building systems. It is a standalone solution for organizations that conduct assessments with their own staff or a complementary solution for organizations that also use third parties for assessments. Integration with VFA’s facilities capital planning software, VFA.facility, lets organizations take advantage of robust prioritization, business intelligence and what-if scenario planning required for a defensible capital plan.
Visitors to the VFA booth can also see a demo of VFA.auditor Mobile™, the mobile client that supports the flexibility and versatility of condition data collection using mobile tablets.
