1. How to Achieve Savings in Facility Operations & Contract Management
Presented by Jackie Cooper & Stan Cooper - Owners of Operational Solutions Management, LLC

Safety, security and emergency management (SSEM) are considered vital areas of a facility's operational program, but how to implement them successfully may seem daunting and expensive. This presentation will provide you with a basic appreciation of how these essential functions can be done in a cost-effective way through contractual management and oversight. Facilities typically require assistance with many of the components of the SSEM program. Each program is an evolving process that will need to be re-assessed and scrutinized for accuracy and completeness each year. The challenge is to identify options which will allow purchases and service contracts to be manageable within the particular facility's budget. Therefore Contract Management is a vital component of a successful SSEM program.

2.  Repair & Renovation Construction Projects - A Better Way: Job Order Contracting
Presented by Mike Coberley - Sr. Mgr. at KBR On-Call Construction

Presented by Patty Anderson - CEO of Performance Building Solutions

Providing case studies, we will hold a discussion of how existing or newly introduced infrastructures can be leveraged by analytical software platforms to provide real time energy data and operational key performance indices to the various stakeholders within the facility environment.  Aligning the right level technological solution, integration methods and analytic key performance indicators are key to provide the outcomes to align with user needs.
