1 Funding for Fixed Research Equipment and Systems April 2010Dennis BaileyAssociate Vice President for FacilitiesThe Florida State University
2 New Research Facilities 2003 -2009 College of Medicine299,200GSFKing Life Sciences Building180,000Psychology Department Building176,760Research Buildings A & B174,800Chemistry Research Building161,400IMB Renovation51,600Materials Research Building47,250Shaw Bldg Renovation, Innovation Park14,300Total Additional GSF1,105,310
3 Plant Operations & Maintenance Funding State Appropriated MoneyFor Basic Maintenance and Operation of Educational FacilitiesIncludes UtilitiesSo what’s the problem and why are we talking about this now ?
4 How P O & M Funding is Determined Step 1Rate energy consumption:A. Is 70% or more of the GSF of this facility air conditioned? Yes = 1 No = 0 B. Is the facility being designed or renovated after 1989? Yes = No = 1 C. % of the Gross Square Footage used for Labs or Research: (Multiply % times 20) D. % of outside air supplied to the facility: (Multiply % times 40) E. Does the facility have a heavy equipment load? Yes = No = 1 (Computer equipment, research equipment, autoclaves, fume hoods, etc.)F. Is this facility an agricultural or maintenance utility shed? Yes = 5 No = 1
5 Step 2 Plug answers from A – F into this formula to calculate The Total Energy Factor (TEF):TEF = [ A * (B+C+D+E ÷ 100) ] * F
6 Step 3 Determine Building Classification Based on Total Energy Factor: TEF = 1.00Facility Class A - Low Energy Usage BuildingA building with less than 70% of the gross square footage receiving conditioned air.TEF = 1.01 to 1.25Facility Class B - General Office BuildingA building that typically contains classrooms, offices, and administrative space.XTEF = 1.26 to 1.29Facility Class C - General Classroom BuildingA building that typically contains classrooms, offices, administrative and special spaces such as general teaching labs, auditoriums, etc.TEF = 1.30 to 1.49Facility Class D - Fine Arts, Specialized Use, Student Activities BuildingA building that typically contains classrooms, offices, auditoriums, general patient care and special support space such as locker rooms, teaching gyms, exercise rooms, studios.TEF = 1.50 to 1.60Facility Class E - General Science BuildingA building that typically contains classrooms, offices, wet and dry instructional labs to support general instruction and research.X TEF = 1.61 to 1.85Facility Class F - Research, Medical, Advanced Technology BuildingA building that typically contains classrooms, offices and highly specialized labs supporting upper level undergraduate programs, graduate programs, medical technology and sponsored research efforts.TEF = < 1.00Facility Class G - Agricultural and Maintenance Support Sheds or BuildingsA building that may typically be used for agricultural and maintenance support and contains no air conditioned space and little or no utility usage.

8 What Does PO&M Funding Cover? Utilities expensesBuilding structure and envelope (doors, windows, roof, exterior walls, etc.)Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systemsPlumbing and mechanical systemsLighting and electrical systemsInterior finishesToilet and general exhaust systemsBuilding control systems (pneumatic and digital)Basic custodial serviceGrounds maintenanceBasic door hardware, repair and replacementPest controlElevatorsEmergency egress lighting with power source
9 What PO&M Funding Does Not Cover Special equipment and systems dedicated to research activitiesCompressed or specially filtered air systemsVacuum pumps and systemsAcid waste systemsHigh purity or process water systemsProcess cooling or heating systemsFume hoodsCold roomsProcess exhaust such as dust collectors, paint or welding boothsAutoclavesEtc.
10 What PO&M Funding Does Not Cover continued Research EquipmentBio-safety cabinetsIncubatorsFreezers, refrigerators, ice machinesChemical sterilizersChemical storage rooms or cabinetsHazardous material cabinetsX-ray machinesSpectrometersMovable furniture or custom installed furnitureOther departmental equipmentDomestic potable water heatersSecurity systems
11 What PO&M Funding Does Not Cover continued CCTV systemsData equipment, computers, switches, routers and telecommunications equipmentFlood damage caused by departmental equipment or connection to building systemsBack up power generatorsUninterruptible power suppliesClinical equipmentStages, lifts and related systemsAudio/visual equipmentAny non-FSU owned equipment, possession, fixtures or items in FSU facilities.This list intended as a guide for funding decisions on maintenance and operating expenditures.
12 So What?There is no PO&M funding available to pay for repairs and/or replacement of millions of dollars worth of research equipment and systems.What happens when a fan motor goes out on a fume hood?Other funding sources must be identified.There is no plan.We need a plan.
