APPA Publishes APPA 1000-2 Total Cost of Ownership Standard for Facilities

January 17, 2020 GMT

ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 17, 2020--

APPA is pleased to announce the publication of APPA 1000-2 Total Cost of Ownership for Facilities Asset Management (TCO) – Part 2: Implementation and Data Elements.

The standard is available on the APPA bookstore at appa.org/bookstore.

Following the guidelines set forth by the American National Standards Institute, the APPA 1000- 2 standard was developed through a broad collaboration process that included industry comment periods and resolution; it received final approval by ANSI on January 3, 2020.

The standard lays out the steps and defines the key and supporting elements fundamental to the successful implementation of TCO. It builds upon APPA 1000-1 Total Cost of Ownership for Facilities Asset Management (TCO) – Part 1: Key Principles, which establishes a common framework for owners of facilities assets to identify and more effectively track and manage costs of a facility, building or supporting infrastructure or assets over the full life cycle, utilizing Total Cost of Ownership principles. The common framework would forecast investment needs, and simplify data decision requirements by creating and utilizing a standard data set, for purposes of maintaining a financially sustainable future of all asset investments.

APPA currently is beta testing training modules that will better equip facilities professionals in the application of TCO to specific equipment or across a campus.  The training modules are expected to be finalized in mid-2020.  Visit appa.org/appa-tco-training-events to find training events.

If you have questions about the APPA TCO standards, contact Billie Zidek, (703) 542-3846 or billie@appa.org.
