The MSBA has instituted many reforms to make the MSBA’s school construction and renovation grant program more effective, efficient, and user-friendly for school districts and to ensure the long-term viability of the program. A vital component of these reforms is to protect the over $20 billion investment in school facility construction and renovation projects throughout the Commonwealth in the past 25 years, through active and on-going maintenance of school facilities by the school districts. The MSBA has adopted criteria based on industry best practices as a prerequisite for MSBA funding and evaluation criteria for the determination of the allocation of maintenance incentive reimbursement points on eligible projects. The following information describes the activities and practices that the MSBA believes are part of a strategy for maintenance and capital planning and budgeting to ensure the long term operation of school facilities. In addition, information is provided to explain the scoring methodology of the maintenance and capital planning rating system.
