"---" indicates that no data was submitted for this field

Does the the institution employ Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) as a matter of policy and practice when evaluating energy and water-using products and systems?:
Yes

Does the institution employ LCCA as a matter of policy and practice across the operations of the entire institution (i.e. all divisions)?:
No

A brief description of the LCCA policy(ies) and practice(s):

LCCA practices are not policy, however they are intrinsic in purchases related to renovation and construction, as WKU's commitment to LEED certification necessitates such considerations. Additionally, our goal to continued energy use reduction through efficiency and conservation strategies require such considerations when purchasing operational or infrastructure equipment (such as HVAC or grounds keeping equipment).
