Facility Services Focuses on Innovation, Expansion
In 2018, TASB Facility Services continued to serve
more than 600 member districts. More than 600
attendees participated in facilities-related trainings, and the Facility Services team worked with
numerous districts and other entities on more
than 500 separate compliance, planning, energy,
and construction projects.
As the division continued to search for opportunities to better serve members, regional staff were
assigned to different territories, with all staff having
the responsibility to ensure the continued and improved service of Facility Services member districts.
Innovation in the areas of efficiency and expansion
were a focus of the year. The division developed
and released a request for information to help
the division perform a comprehensive review of
the facility-related services offered by TASB, how
they are currently delivered and by whom, and
what additional services or products TASB might
want to offer in the future. TASB staff interviewed
selected firms in markets related to environmental,
energy, facility planning, and mitigation/restora-tion. Four firms were selected in the compliance,
planning, and energy markets, with agreements
anticipated to be in place by the end of the year.
