Repair & Renovation Contracts… A Better Way: Job Order Contracting
Presented by Mike Coberley, FMP, GA/C - Brown & Root

Today’s facility managers face the daunting task of doing more with less.  While staff and capital budgets are being cut and costs for new construction escalate, refurbishing existing facilities becomes an ever more attractive and necessary prospect.  Unfortunately, the traditional procurement methods to solicit and contract these projects don’t provide the facility planner with the quick response and budget control required.  However, there is an alternative procurement vehicle that truly has the possibility of being better, more responsive and more cost effective… three things all managers dream of.  Job Order Contracting (JOC).

 

The purpose of this presentation is to educate the attendee on what Job Order Contracting (JOC) is, how it works, and what its potential benefits are.


See Something, Say Something
Presented by James Marcella - Axis Communications

The popular public safety campaign “See Something, Say Something" has acted as force multiplier urging everyone to take an active role in protecting their community. Video surveillance systems play a role in this force multiplier equation as well. But while it excelled as a tool to “see something," historically it lacked the audio capabilities to “say something." Those days, however, are numbered. New audio-augmented systems are significantly increasing the effectiveness of surveillance systems to deter crime, and improve public safety.

In this session attendees will learn about how to increase the effectiveness of video surveillance systems by:
• Increasing the deterrence by adding audio capabilities
• Navigating the legal mine field of adding audio to your systems
• Understanding the technical skills for successful deployment (Hint: you already have them)
• Implementing “Audio Analytics" to proactively identify threats

   • When and where to specify
