Facility Condition Assessment Program and Capital Planning for Ontario School Boards
Presenters: Hitesh Chopra, Minsitry of Education and Sazan Bimo, Accurent

Facility Condition Program is in the 8th Year. We have gathered data that Boards can use for making better decisions about funding of important Building components and improving the condition of Education Facilities. The quality of data gathered from the program needs to be supported by the ongoing work of Board users. This workshop after giving a status of the FCAP will show the full cycle of data gathering, prioritization, spending and reporting in VFA.facility.
