Colleagues, members and partners,
Continuing our recent success through the Knowledge Services Committee, the TEFMA Asset Audit Guideline has also been subject to a review, replacing the former Facilities Audit Guidelines. The Asset Audit Guideline provides a framework for conducting audits of Institutional assets and facilities and is intended for use by the sector to aid in benchmarking of key performance indicators, and aiding users to understanding the inputs and drivers of functionality, condition and environmental performance.
In similar fashion to the Strategic Asset Management Guidelines, a broad sector special interest group was established to update this document. On behalf of the TEFMA Board I would like to acknowledge and thank the SIG group members for their time, commitment and expertise to aid the refresh of TEFMA's Asset Audit Guideline:
We acknowledge their Institutions and Institutional Members for their support and for providing these subject matter experts the time to participate in this important piece of work. Mick Serena and Lisa Brown from SAFM Solutions again provided guidance and technical support throughout the project, and I would like to give a special thank you to both of them for keeping the project on track.
This document has also been available in the following formats on the website:
Our Space Guidelines special interest group has also been formed with an approach to market underway to find our business partner lead for this guideline review. This will correlate well with a new Hackathon type concept to be launched in 2021, with the first focus being a reimagining of University spaces from the perspective of students. It is intended that both of these will be delivered in the second half of 2021.
With our 2020 benchmark survey due to close at the end of April, we can also look forward to a new Analysis report to be issued with our collected data set in July, alongside our Annual Report. We saw our first webinar of the year last month (with thanks again to Wilson Security) and encourage you all to participate in future webinar sharing events put on by our Education Committee.
The Board are working with our partners to recommence workshops, albeit on a smaller regional scale initially, as well as to bring our members the 2021 Tertiary Education Management Conference (TEMC, with ATEM) in October. Our Institutional Members and Business Partners will also be invited to a hybrid (online and face to face) Directors Forum in July 2021 with exceptional panelist speakers and site tours currently being confirmed – this certainly will not be one to miss as we seek to inspire and positively influence our campuses of tomorrow.
I look forward to the month ahead and encourage you all again to ensure your colleagues are members, keep up to date with the events being put on for your benefit, and to invite discussions across the network and with our business partners.
