Herndon, VA (PRWEB) September 21, 2010
VISTA Technology Services, Inc. (VISTAtsi) is pleased to announce our recent article inclusion in The Society of American Military Engineers magazine, The Military Engineer (TME). Featured in their September-October edition themed Asset Management, "Large-Scale Facilities Condition Assessments" is an article contributed by Mike Ryan, Program Manager at VISTAtsi and David Leinberger, Army HQ USA, Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management (OACSIM), Installation Status Report (ISR) Program Manager, focusing on Installation Status Report-Infrastructure (ISR-I).
"We are proud to support the U.S. Army--the largest facilities and infrastructure portfolio in the free world--to process data from portfolio-wide condition assessments, performed for the lowest cost anywhere in the industry," remarked VISTAtsi President and CEO, David B. Baxa. "Mike Ryan is an expert in facilities and infrastructure planning and I am pleased that The Military Engineer magazine is publishing this article as part of their Asset Management edition."
The article explains the US Army's method for facilities condition assessments that produces high integrity results at low costs. Based on engineering criteria, but implemented through a process that includes building occupants as inspectors, the Army leverages stakeholder interests with a process that has years of proven consistency, accuracy and reliability. VISTAtsi supports the annual condition assessments of all Army facilities to help create baseline information that drives operations and maintenance budgets while supporting priorities for major component renewal and overall portfolio sustainability. VISTAtsi's work with the U.S. Army on Installation Status Report - Infrastructure (ISR-I) produces inspection ratings and improvement cost estimates that have been used to support Congressional testimony during scrutiny of the Army's budgets.
