Preventive Maintenance for University of Minnesota Buildings

June 27, 2012

We found that the University of Minnesota's Twin Cities campus has implemented a good preventive maintenance program for most University-owned buildings, and we recommend extending the program to cover all University-owned buildings on the campus. We also recommend that the University revise how it measures and reports on the timeliness of its preventive maintenance activities. Finally, because the University will need to upgrade its computerized information management system for preventive maintenance next year, it should look for a system that allows the University to incorporate a more predictive approach to building maintenance.
