School Maintenance Consortium

Calling all FACJPA Members!

The Facilities JPA has created the School Maintenance Consortium (SMC) to serve as a venue for San Diego school districts to share facilities maintenance related issues, concerns and experiences and as a services solutions center for districts. The specific goal of the School Maintenance Consortium will be to act as a hub for information related to school maintenance, including maintenance strategies, providing support and guidance for compliance issues, maintenance best management practices, new legislative requirements and general information pertaining to school maintenance departments. As with other FACJPA consortia, there is no cost or obligation to be a part of the group. We welcome active district participation.

On Nov. 16, 2016 the initial SMC kick-off meeting was held at the SDCOE Linda Vista campus. With several district representatives in the audience and on-line we reviewed a full agenda and discussed the SMC goals. A key and significant accomplishment of this inaugural meeting was establishment of an SMC Advisory committee to the FACJPA Executive committee to advise on the direction that the SMC will take. The first task of the advisory committee was to review the pricing structure for a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) along with several associated services options. 

We anticipate holding quarterly meetings of the advisory committee as we jointly plot a path towards proactive facilities maintenance and planning. You will all receive a reminder when our next meeting is scheduled. Meanwhile, please review the presentation from the initial meeting, review the planned offering and the CMMS pricing options. Then feel free to contact Lance Bidnick or Bill Dos Santos with your questions and/or ideas. We look forward to see you all at the next SMC meeting.
