During the timeframe of our submission (FY15/16), we had an Indoor Quality Program in operation. In the past (including FY15/16), baseline air sampling had been conducted using an Aircuity Optima, both to ensure expected building operations and to establish levels for comparison when questions or concerns with IAQ arise. Indoor air concerns or complaints are registered with the Facilities Service Desk and investigated by facilities management & planning and EHS personnel. At the time of our submission (Feb 2017) the copy of our "policy/protocol" was removed from our website and is not able to be located and the fate of the program is unknown.
