A brief description of how the institution ensures compliance with sustainable building operation and maintenance guidelines and policies:

The University ensures compliance with green operation and maintenance
policies through facilities staff training, outreach and marketing to
offices around campus, and provision of tools to help departments comply
with the policies. A professional energy management staff in Facilities
Management oversees centralized energy conservation efforts and
provides guidance for departments around campus seeking to reduce their
energy consumption. A professional grounds staff has been trained to
minimize use of chemicals and fertilizers and implement an integrated
pest management plan. Professional custodial staff in Facilities
Management and Residential Facilities has been trained in green cleaning
methods and achieved Green Seal GS-42 Certification. The Department of
Procurement and Supply has incorporated environmentally preferable
products into all of its master contracts and provides a summary of
green products available from office supply vendors. The Office of
Sustainability developed and oversees the University of Maryland Green
Office Program through which outreach, tools and periodic audits
pertaining to all of these policies and guidelines are provided to
participating offices around campus.
