Prioritize Projects by Urgency, Cost, and FCI

My Facility Informer was created by school facility planners, for school administrators, with all school stakeholders in mind.

No overly technical data to break down for your communities. No getting lost in pages and pages of charts and cells—you control how your findings are presented.

Step-by-Step Training Videos

My Facility Informer’s training videos turn any school staff member into a top-notch assessor. 

Our online tutorials include the following:

  • Guidance on facility assessing
  • Tips and tricks
  • Use of the administrative porta
  • Full training on the reporting dashboard.


Capacity Assessments


Define Capacity Accurately and Equitably to Support Teachers and Students

My Facility Informer provides baseline standards for the programmatic capacity of a space and the standard square feet per student each space should provide.

Customizable Capacity Parameters for Local Relevancy

With our customizable baseline capacity inputs, your administrators can control:

  • Program capacity of each space
  • Square feet per student that should be available per space
  • Number of cohorts of students a space should support
  • Utilization factor (10% to 100%) to reflect how often a space is used

Collect Capacity Data Alongside Condition and Adequacy Data

Once your parameters are set, My Facility Informer automatically generates each school’s program-based and square footage-based capacity as the assessors complete their work. 

The results and accompanying visuals are automatically uploaded to My Facility Informer.

Generate Reports by Campus Instantly

Instantly generate reports by campus detailing the square footage and programmatic capacity of each building and each room.

Condition Assessments

My Facility Informer collects data that actually matters to schools. They can complete surveys to help them audit school security, IT, ADA compliance, indoor air quality, and harmful substances. And they can do it in any language.

  • Facility Condition Assessments


    Assess over 150 major existing site and building conditions to identify deficiencies, maintenance and repair needs, and the current status of your building infrastructure.

    Includes major building systems, such as structure, HVAC, lighting, electrical, roofing, plumbing, etc. and minor systems like windows, doors, walls, floors, fixtures, and casework.

  • Safety Audit Assessments


    By-facility safety audits identify the presence or absence of key safety metrics like signage for restricted areas, adequate lighting, and surveillance.

  • Indoor Air Quality, IT, and Connectivity


    Assess the air quality, IT infrastructure, and connectivity capabilities at each school site. Identify harmful substances such as lead, asbestos, mold, PCBs, radon, and water quality to determine if the facility is compliant.

  • Cost and Forecasting


    My Facility Informer automatically generates:

    • Estimated repair/replacement costs for each deficiency
    • A geographic-specific, market-specific overall building replacement cost.

    These costs inform the Facility Condition Index (FCI) score that rates the overall condition of each facility.

Educational Adequacy Assessments

My Facility Informer’s Educational Adequacy Assessment lets you measure how well your structures support your educational model both inside the classroom and outside the facility.

Set standards by facility (elementary, middle school, and high school) and room type (gymnasiums, cafeterias, etc.). Understanding these components can help you set a budget that considers all parts and pieces of your educational environment.

Interior & Exterior

Assess educational adequacy both inside (sinks, acoustics, windows) and outside (playgrounds, traffic flow, egresses) your facilities to get a better understanding of where dollars should really be spent.

A First-of-its-kind Dynamic Facilities Dashboard

More is not always better.

With a simple interface and intuitive design, My Facility Informer turns your complex data into information you can immediately understand and immediately use.


Speaks to Every Stakeholder

My Facility Informer was made for facilities assessors who want all the details, yes. But it was also made for other valuable stakeholders:

  • Semi-interested, voting community members
  • Involved parents who may not understand construction trades
  • Teachers and administrators who fully grasp their schools’ priorities
  • Legislators and public officials

Public and Administrative Accessibility

A Public View provides the transparency your stakeholders need to make informed decisions. 

And the tool’s user logins with varying administrative rights ensure that your non-public data stays secure.


District-Level View

The district-level view provides a high-level summary of the district’s most pressing priorities. 


Each facility is color-coded by the facility’s overall Facility Condition Index (FCI) and presented on a district-wide Google™ Map. 


This gives your stakeholders an easy way to see which schools are most in need across the district.

Facility Condition Findings

The Facility Condition Findings page shows a facility’s entire replacement cost as well as the costs of its individual identified deficiencies. 


The dashboard filters condition findings from 150+ data points down to 16 major categories that are color-coded to reflect their condition. 


In addition, each school’s landing page lists Priority Projects and Secondary Projects so stakeholders can see priorities by school.

Educational Adequacy & Capacity

Educational Adequacy Assessments measure the extent to which a building is helping or hindering your current educational model.


The dashboard filters educational adequacy findings into major categories that are color-coded to reflect their condition and lists priority recommendations for enhancing the educational environment.


In addition, each school’s specific landing page shows that school’s current capacity as well as its optimal capacity.


Comprehensive Data View

Anyone who wants to view the extensive raw data collected on each building system can do so on the Facility Details page. This page provides a database-style view showing how each data point was assessed.

Facility Photos

You can display site-specific facility photos on the appropriate landing page to give your stakeholders accurate, real-time accounts of what is happening at each school.

District-level view with schools color-coded by their deficiency rating.

Individual campuses have their own landing page with high-level summaries.

Campus-specific stats, priority projects, and photos make the facility-finding page easy to share with the public.
