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

All gross square footage of all buildings on UMBC's campus are operated and maintained to ASHRAE's 189.1 standards. UMBC uses the following multi-attribute frameworks to maintain campus: Energy and Water Management Program, Integrated Pest Management Program, Green Cleaning Specifications, and an Indoor Air Quality Program.

Energy & Water Management Program
Facilities Management monitors electricity, natural gas, and water with multiple telemetries connected to operations and maintenance dashboards. UMBC's buildings are enabled with Building Automation Systems (BAS) to enable Facilities Management groups to monitor the campus energy and water systems processes, identify issues, and implement solutions in real-time.

IPM Program
UMBC adheres to the State of Maryland's Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in Schools and on School Grounds Law. UMBC's IPM is a managed pest control program in which methods are integrated and used to keep pests from causing economic, health-related, or aesthetic injury through the utilization of site or pest inspections, pest population monitoring, evaluating the need for control, and the use of one or more pest control methods including sanitation, structural repair, non-chemical methods, and, when nontoxic options are unreasonable or have been exhausted, pesticides in order to minimize the use of pesticides and minimize the risk to human health and the environment associated with pesticide applications. Practices such as sanitation, excluding pests through structural repairs, and education comprise the routine IPM service.

Green Cleaning Specifications
All housekeeping and janitorial supplies (e.g. cleaning chemicals, floor maintenance
chemicals, mop heads, cloths, etc.) must comply with the Maryland Green Purchasing Committee’s Specification for Environmentally Preferable Janitorial Supplies which can be accessed at https://dgs.maryland.gov/Pages/GreenPurchasing/Resources/Janitorial.aspx

IAQ Program
UMBC conducts annual indoor air quality (IAQ) audits that discover any conditions that may need corrections. UMBC assesses the area in question, meets with the individuals who have concerns and, if needed, utilizes a third-party Industrial Hygienist to perform additional sampling. Then if the findings necessitate, a remediation plan is then formed involving all impacted and necessary individuals. All employees can contact their supervisor, Facilities Management and/or Environmental Safety and Health (ESH) with concerns. Students may contact Residential Life, Student Life, or Facilities Management.
