Agencies at all levels of government face complex challenges in managing their real estate and property portfolios. They must comply with specific regulatory and governance requirements, as well as budgets that can rise and fall with administrations. Stewards of public holdings also face increased public scrutiny—and potential voter backlash—when they mismanage those holdings.
The term “government agencies” applies to a wide range of taxpayer-supported organizations, including U.S. cabinet-level departments, state and local governments, state university systems, K-12 public school districts, prison systems, courts and law enforcement agencies. Some agencies have hundreds of facilities in their real estate portfolios. It’s a lot to track—and making sense of the data is an even bigger task.
This complexity is what led to the development of IBM TRIRIGA®, an Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) that gives you a single view of your entire real estate portfolio, along with all its facilities, capital assets and equipment. eCIFM, a premier IBM business partner and certified value-added TRIRIGA reseller, has developed TRIRIGA solutions to meet the specific needs of government agencies.
The Best Government IWMS Software Solution
eCIFM’s TRIRIGA solutions help government agencies manage every part of their real estate portfolios for the best results. That total-portfolio perspective makes costs more predictable, eliminates waste and ensures proper operations and maintenance of public holdings. All of this helps agencies provide the best and most cost-effective service while producing financially sustainable budgets.
The benefits of increased efficiency and streamlined processes start right away. Agencies using TRIRIGA eliminate hours spent inputting, maintaining and managing information and reconciling data from multiple sources on projects like facility condition assessments. With TRIRIGA, you’ll be able to establish and enforce real property data standards department-wide. Your data will be accurate and readily available, and you’ll be able to run your own analyses on it without needing an advanced degree in statistics.
Managing Compliance Requirements
Most government agencies work under multiple inspection and regulatory regimes. TRIRIGA’s reporting and analytics abilities simplify the processes necessary for agencies to meet their regulatory requirements. These abilities include:
- Using real property data that complies with U.S. real property architecture and reporting standards
- Managing CFO Act audit readiness requirements
- Meeting energy efficiency mandates
To avoid possible penalties, your agency must comply with all relevant regulations. Some requirements, such as efficiency mandates, can yield savings, while others can help you get the most out of your current spaces and assets. eCIFM’s TRIRIGA solutions for government agencies can help you stay in compliance while showing you the pathways to cutting costs and reducing waste and unnecessary expenditures.
Create Financially-Sustainable Budgets
It’s difficult to create financially-responsible budgets on a large scale; it’s next to impossible to do this without a comprehensive picture of your holdings and financial responsibilities. TRIRIGA gives agencies that full picture, enabling them to set spending and service baselines for the buildings and equipment they oversee, tailored to the condition and service histories of each individual asset. Over time, your agency can fine-tune its budget as populations shift and needs change. The insights TRIRIGA gives you into the current condition and service history of your assets mean fewer surprise expenses down the road from unexpected facility repairs and equipment failure. TRIRIGA makes stable, accurate, sustainable budgets possible for large organizations with vast portfolios.
