Advisory Services

Establish strategic facility capital planning programs that support the mission and strategic goals of your organization. Leverage VFA’s domain knowledge and manpower to move forward in planning and utilizing your facilities strategically.

Toward this end, in addition to its identified services, VFA also offers:

  • Analytic and consultative support: VFA experts can help your team utilize project findings and employ technical data to support optimal funding options. We can then help you develop and present more compelling funding requests and strategy discussions to executive, shareholder, and key stakeholder groups.
  • Long-range capital cost analysis and planning: Projecting investment requirements from 6 to 30+ years ahead using cost baseline data, VFA can identify demand trends and critical points in the lifecycle of your facilities, helping you prepare for ‘unanticipated’ capital projects and estimate funding needs.
  • Managed Services/Staff Augmentation: VFA Consultants can advise or supplement your own PM to manage a facility assessment utilizing VFA.auditor. This is often appropriate for projects that involve 3rd party FM outsourcing organizations.
  • Expert on Call: VFA offers a “hot line” to a Consultant to answer questions on any topic related to VFA software or capital planning. Common examples include how to best answer a complex or rapid turn-around question posed by a company executive.
