To effectively manage the facilities and properties under your care as a Facilities Planning and Management Officer (FPMO), you need comprehensive information and a thorough understanding of your role. This will enable you to make informed decisions and fulfill your responsibilities competently.
Additional space needs should be addressed first within a department’s current allocation, then within the school or unit. Existing space must be utilized as effectively as possible to support desired growth. Space management principles are applied to all space that is new and existing and located on campus or off-campus and to all academic, administrative, housing and student services.
