From the beginning, this office has endorsed a strong partnership with Facilities Management in order to ensure new and renovated facilities can be supported operationally. This has also allowed better coordination of all facilities projects across the AHC including those originating in individual departments. Close collaboration with FM has allowed thoughtful leveraging of capital, R&R and HEAPR allocations.
