Routine, preventative and deferred maintenance are individually programmed, planned, tracked and executed. In-house staff handle most routine and preventative maintenance. Larger non-routine repairs and alterations are normally contracted out. Deferred maintenance projects are developed from inspections, life cycle analysis and consolidated from work orders received that identify larger facilities requirements. Deferred maintenance projects between $25,000 and $1,000,000 are incorporated into the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Maintenance Reserve Program. These projects are developed, prioritized and submitted to the state for programmatic approval.
Funding is provided by the General Assembly as part of our Capital Outlay (Construction) Program. Overall funding levels for the Maintenance Reserve Program are determined by a state formula that accounts for the age and replacement value of facilities.
