Facilities and Asset Management (FAM)
The Facilities and Asset Management (FAM) division was formed in 1994 to help better manage city facilities and equipment. The division plays an active role in evaluating the needs of city facility and in promoting proactive maintenance and capital renewal programs.
- Operation and maintenance of facilities assigned to FAM, including the Boulder Public Libraries, Parks and Recreation and the General Fund facilities.
- Renovation and Replacement of General Fund facilities.
- Scheduling and management of Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects related to facilities that are funded by the General Fund, Capital Development Fund, or Facility Renovation and Replacement Fund.
- Maintain a database of all city facilities and properties for financial and insurance purposes.
- Establish city policies, standards, and best practices for managing buildings and building support systems, equipment, and furniture.
- Make recommendations to the City Manager's Office for the use and space allocation of city facilities.
- Manage the Equipment Replacement Program to provide for the replacement of major city equipment when it reaches the end of its service life.
- Coordinate with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), U.S. Green Buildings Council (USGBC) and all city departments to facilitate energy efficiencies and environmental sustainability programs.
The FAM Master Plan addresses the major challenges that the city faces with the management of General Fund facilities from 2005 through 2014. The goal is to establish proven methods of facility management for our assets and promote cost-effective programs that provide safe, clean and efficient environments for the Boulder community and city staff.
