Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 16, 2014

VFA, Inc., the leading provider of end-to-end solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, today announced it will host a complimentary seminar, “Functional Adequacy: Taking Decision-Making Beyond Building Condition Data,” on Tuesday, June 17 from 11:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. EST at the U.S. Embassy in Ottawa, Ontario. In a special ceremony, VFA will also present Infrastructure Ontario with the 2014 CapStar Award.

In this seminar, Ron Fraser of Infrastructure Ontario will discuss a data-driven approach to asset management, the importance of gathering key data, understanding portfolio condition and developing a prioritized capital budget. Facility investment decisions can prove difficult for organizations, especially those with large real estate portfolios. The key to intelligent investment decisions lies in the ability to look at a portfolio holistically by considering facility condition, demographics and functional adequacy. Attendees will learn how coupling facility condition and functional adequacy assessments, measuring and scoring facilities performance, and prioritizing and optimizing their investment options has brought Infrastructure Ontario to the next level of successful facility management.

During the seminar, VFA President and CEO Jerry Kokos and Susan Anson, president of VFA Canada Corporation, will present Infrastructure Ontario with the 2014 CapStar Award for the innovative application of software technology or business process to support facilities capital planning and management.

“VFA is pleased to recognize Infrastructure Ontario with the 2014 CapStar Award,” Anson said. “We selected this organization from hundreds of VFA clients for demonstrating a leading-edge approach to facilities capital planning.”
