Facility Management & Operations Council (FMOC)
Facility Management & Operations Council (FMOC) provides industry-wide, public and private support for the creation of higher quality facilities through improved maintenance and operation and real property management.
To increase maintenance and operations influence in the facility acquisition process
To promote the sharing and integration of facilities maintenance and operations procedures and information
To identify and disseminate best practices to strengthen the knowledge and skills of facility management professionals
NIBS members may join any of the following task groups. Here, we discuss opportunities for collaboration, knowledge sharing, publications and outreach opportunities for you and your firm.

Real Property/Facility Management
The FMOC is involved in and supports the continued development of real property and facility management resources. Member interests beyond the normal scope of operations and maintenance include functionality, suitability, sustainability, and utilization of facilities.
On earth and in space, buildings and their related infrastructure must operate in an environment with constrained resources (both financial and physical). Recognizing these common issues, the National Institute of Building Sciences, the Total Learning Research Institute (TLRI), and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) look to engage and inspire K-12 students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) activities related to building sciences. NIBS looks to lead development of joint programs to create and inspire interest in careers within the built environment and leverage STEM K-12 challenge curriculum and utilize educational resources developed by NASA along with technical assistance from the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate, the Chief Technologist, the Science Mission Directorate, and others.
EV Revolution, GM RE100 Goal and General Motors Perspective
EV revolution is here and GM if focused on efforts that drive a 0,0,0, future, (Zero Crashes, Zero Emissions, and Zero Congestion). A crucial transformation of our transport system to EV is necessary if we have to achieve the goals of Climate Change while at the same time decarbonization the grid while maintaining reliability is essential.

Total Cost of Ownership – Maintenance of Essential Data
The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is an accepted approach to gather all the costs associated with ownership of a facility over its life. The inputs to TCO are drawn from several sources and require transparency and collaboration. However, as several of these inputs are forecasts, the resultant TCO is affected by the accuracy of the input data as well as changes to the input data over time. Learn more
