EAOS THANKS THE TEMPORARY ASSET DATA MANAGERS
We’d like to extend the biggest ‘Thank You’ to Jeff Smith and Bill Guest for all their hard work as they celebrate their last day in the seat of Asset Data Managers. The pilot for this project was very important for building the foundation of the path that EAOS will take to maintain & operate our assets. The fact that they were able to complete this pilot successfully is definitely amazing, as this was not an easy task. This adventure started with Heads/Sub Heads telling us what data they wanted to be collected. Preparation of templates for the collection of information and then Jeff and Bill collecting information for FNH and Iona, in addition they also collected information campus wide on some regulatory equipment to help us with compliance which was Boiler Pressure Vessels (BPV)and elevators. A job well done!
Preview of what’s next: Refresher training for the Records Retrieval System to save you time in searches for information. It will be your best friend!
Work will start on indexing information in Records. What this means is before manuals are stored in Records they will be divided into logical searchable sections, so that will be quicker and more user friendly
We also want your feedback on how the FNH and Iona data that was collected is helping you so if you do go into the Records Management system and use the data on FNH and Iona please let us know how well it’s working for you. Either tell us or fill out an EAOS form found on the Building Ops Website found at “Get in touch with EAOS” on the Staff tab under Projects and Programs or email us.

END-OF-TERM CENTENNIAL CELEBRATIONS OF THE UBC COMMUNITY
A message from Dr. Martha C. Piper, Interim President and Vice-Chancellor
Last September, several thousand members of the UBC community came together at events to both campuses to launch UBC’s Centennial and at the same time to mark the 10th Anniversary of UBC Okanagan. Throughout the Centennial year, the community has marked these historic milestones through collaborative projects that demonstrate our collective pursuit of excellence in teaching, learning and research. We have remembered and include our Aboriginal history and our future together, recognized our government and private partnerships, and completed our landmark stat and evolution fundraising and alumni engagement campaign.
