This smart school initiative is quite commendable. It shows that we have a forward-thinking government. However, I’d like to add that ongoing comprehensive facility management is incorporated into the plan and should not be optional. There are two ways that this can be achieved:
1. Direct labour: This will be under public works department of the ministry or works. The scope would be:
– Routine weekly facility inspection.
– Landscaping and cleaning.
– Maintenance and servicing of water/plumbing works, electrical fittings, carpentry fixtures, fixing minor masonry works etc.
– Painting/touch-up.
– Fire extinguisher inspection and servicing.
– Regular HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) inspection on a weekly basis.
– Any other maintenance requirement.

2. Award a long term contract to a certified Facility Management company, say 2 – 4 years to carry all the tasks specified in (1) above with a proper SLA (Service Level Agreement) checklist on all the deliverables and more.
