The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has charged the Office of Construction Facilities Management (CFM) with the management for the assessment of the VA capital asset portfolio. VA has created a Capital Asset Inventory (CAI) which contains all the key data needed to describe our existing infrastructure. A Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) is a tool used to obtain essential data. An FCA is a visual inspection of the technical and physical conditions of a VA Medical Center’s facility. The inspector submits a report detailing identified corrective actions. FCAs are in place for all VAMCs and updated every three years. This Task Order is a continuation of that effort. VISN 15 contains approximately 5,689,304 gross square feet of documented assets. This assessment includes 32 buildings or 361,347 square feet of space that is not included in the current FCA data base.
