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

All buildings that are operated by Macalester (excluding Macalester-owned housing that is rented to faculty and staff) are operated in accordance with multiple indicators from LEED O+M standards. For example, we use a dashboard to monitor (in real time) our electricity consumption, steam condensate return, and natural gas use in our heating plant. Additionally, we use a building control system to automatically monitor and control our HVAC system. We use a Green Cleaning System that uses ionized water instead of harsh chemicals in. many of our buildings, and we are in the midst of transitioning the rest (it is not a money-saving investment for us, so we are spreading the final implementation over a few budget years). Those buildings are operated according to multi-attribute O + M criteria, and have not applied for LEED certifications.
