Key Facilities Metrics Survey - Survey Closes Dec 12

The 2015-16 survey closes on December 12, 2016 available online: Free and open to all campuses (do not need to be either an APPA or NACUBO member).

Enter at least two or more of the topics and 10 randomly selected participants will get a $10 Starbucks gift card.

"This survey took about 15 minutes and was an easy report. We keep good utility records and just had a waste audit report done." David Rubin, Business Manager of Facilities Management, Northeastern Illinois University.

IF your campus is NOT keeping utility records - this is a great opportunity to set up a simple system and capture your consumption. A quick review can easily find mistakes that some utility providers make! Survey results reflect these five key (and simple) elements that readily come from vendor or utility bills.

Contact if you need a hard copy of the survey, want to know if someone at your campus is filling it out, want a past copy of your campus data, or have ANY other questions.

Campus leadership can recite pertinent campus facts such as cost of tuition, types of academic programs, number of students, etc. Leadership should also know basic facilities data to improve strategic planning such as BTU, electrical, and water consumption, as well as waste output, and carbon footprint.

Check out our brochure on the survey - it cites benefits to your campus by documenting this data.
