ABSTRACT: Large organizations like the City of Philadelphia have many departments with large facilities portfolios to manage. Each of these departments may have their own systems to track facilities operations and maintenance expenses. Each also has their own facilities-related capital investment needs. The City of Philadelphia is using GIS to harvest facilities data from a wide variety of different systems and organize them using location as the organizing principle. Using this approach, the Mayor's office can make better informed facilities capital investment decisions across the entire city portfolio rather on a department by department basis. Stu Rich will discuss the value that the City has received from this approach along with some of the challenges encountered along the way.
