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

The University of Montana has several ways to ensure compliance with sustainable operations. One is to assign staff with the resposibiltiy of policy or guideline implementation. For example the Sustainability Coordinator is responsible for implementation of the Green Cleaning Policy and the waste management program. The campus Energy Manager is responsible for monitoring energy use and conservation. Another way compliance is ensured is to have committee oversight, such as the Sustainable Campus Committee and the Recycling Oversight Committee.

Although the University of Montana does not have any buildings formally certified as LEED EBOM, we have researched and initatiated the process. We have a Green Cleaning Policy in place, a Tobacco Policy, waste stream management, energy management, and an alternative transportation system. These have not yet been certified to meet LEED requirements however.
