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

UC's sustainable building operations program focuses on energy and water conservation and the maintenance of good indoor environmental quality through the use of green cleaning products. In terms of energy, the University of Cincinnati’s campus is actively controlled by a comprehensive centralized building monitoring system (BMS). This BMS system allows for a sophisticated control of many of the largest pieces of equipment, lighting and HVAC systems operating throughout the campus buildings. Beyond the BMS, the preferred temperature control setpoints for the buildings during occupied periods at the university are 70°F heating and 74°F cooling. The University's staff sets back the temperatures and the airflows wherever possible. UC's unoccupied building temperature setpoints are 65°F heating and 78°F cooling. These unoccupied periods are determined by either an occupancy sensor or time of day schedule. UC also has strict water conservation policies, and has had a robust green cleaning policy in place for more than a decade.
