Seeking to continuously improve campus operations at Saint Louis University, Facilities Services is committed to a benchmarking process that identifies areas for opportunity. By identifying best practices in the higher education sector and comparing current processes, we are able to develop performance metrics and compile data to inform strategic decision-making for campus facilities and operations.
We work with Sightlines Consulting Group to assess our level of service, resource stewardship, staffing appropriation, and facility assest management practices annually, comparing against their database of institutions. Their Return-On-Physical-Assets (ROPA) process uses in-depth analysis and benchmarking to evaluate performance, set targets and track progress across years.
We participate in the Facilities Performance Indicators Survey and Report annually through APPA (Leadership in Educational Facilities). This survey and reporting tool enhances our ability to measure operations and performance, in order to implement successful strategies that support our Mission and Vision.
