A brief description of the sustainable operations and maintenance policy/program and/or O+M rating system(s) used:

Certified at minimum level under a multi-attribute, GBC rating system focused on the operations and maintenance of existing buildings:
8 campus parking garages under Parksmart

Operated and maintained in accordance with a multi-attribute, sustainable management policy/program, but not certified under an O+M rating system:
Primarily comprised of campuses in metropolitan Phoenix. These facilities are managed with energy and water benchmarking, IPM practices, and green cleaning practices.

Operated and maintained in accordance with a single-attribute, sustainable management policy/program, but not certified under an O+M rating system:
Primarily composed of facilities under ASU's reporting scope but not managed by ASU's core FM staff on a daily basis. These buildings are managed using IPM practices.

Programs:
Indoor Air Quality:
The Arizona State University (ASU) EHS 402: Indoor Air Quality Investigations policy outlines the indoor air quality (IAQ) procedure for all buildings at ASU. Per ASU policy EHS 402, the university's Facilities Development and Management (FDM) department and Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) department manage the indoor air environment in campus buildings. University building occupants who suspect that discomfort or illness in the workplace is attributable to conditions affecting the indoor air quality of that space may report indoor air quality concerns through the FDM Service Center or EHS department as well as inform his or her immediate supervisor. ASU monitors more than 20 buildings using the Aircuity Demand Ventilation Control system, which monitors for parameters such as Carbon Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide, Total Volatile Organic Compounds, and Particulates. Building indoor air is continuously monitored using a JCI Metasys System building automation system and reports alarms on campus including incidents related to airflow in rooms, temperature, and humidity. FDM performs routine preventative maintenance to building HVAC systems. An indoor air quality team consisting of FDM and EHS work together to investigate and resolve IAQ issues on campus. The team may respond to system alarms or employee reported complaints. In response to these situations, FDM and EHS follow up with action plans, which may include any of the following: reviewing HVAC conditions, occupant interviews, site investigation, air monitoring for point of source air contaminants. After determining the root cause(s) of the situation, action plans are implemented to correct the situation.

Building level metering and benchmarking
Buildings have meters for energy and water and are benchmarked for use as compared with similar building types. This information is used to identify problems and prioritize efficiency projects.

IPM
Practices based on the UC Davis IPM program.

Green cleaning
ASU's vendors work to purchase Green Seal certified products for all possible use cases. For FY19, 85% of cleaning and janitorial products were third party certified to meet recognized sustainability standards.
