Major research universities are stakeholders in the policy template that will guide the development of town-gown infrastructure interface in the emergent #SmartCampus. We have been participants in this project since 2014 and collaborate with subject matter experts at other US colleges and universities. [Comments on another redline covering smart city indicators is due April 2nd] @NFPA @isostandards @ANSIdotorg @AFNOR
Through ANSI, the University of Texas Medical Branch became the inspiration for first global standard for health care administration. University-affiliated healthcare enterprises take note. The high level policy framework set in this standard will become the global performance benchmark for healthcare administration. [The next online teleconference of this US TAG is scheduled for March 20th, 11:00 AM Eastern time] #StandardsTexas
Recent communication from International Association of Innovation Professionals (IAOIP) indicates that it continues to welcome participation from the US education industry. There are many academic programs and faculty devoted to international studies and innovation that could offer students a front-row seat for the development of international technology policy.
The Illumination Engineering Society is one of the first names in non-profit trade associations whose consensus documents are heavily referenced in design guidelines and construction projects for the US education industry. It has launched a new consensus document intended to link various IES documents together, augmenting them in subject areas not otherwise covered. The IES is seeking subject matter experts to participate in its development.
This IEEE regulatory product sets the standard of care for construction, operation and maintenance of power and telecommunication infrastructure and overlaps in significant areas with the National Electrical Code, a regulatory product developed by the National Fire Protection Association. We advocate in the NESC and collaborate closely with the IEEE Education & Healthcare Facilities Committee. [Comments on next revisions are due July 1, 2019] #StandardsNewJersey
During 2019 we are rolling out our user-interest collaboration architecture to school districts, colleges, universities and university-affiliated healthcare systems in all 50-states. To lower #TotalCostofOwnership for the emergent #SmartCampus every state will have to be managed according to its history, culture, governance regime, asset-base and network of expertise. #StandardsNorthDakota
Since the ASHRAE Conference last month thirty (30) redlines for new addenda to ASHRAE 90.1 Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings have been released for public comment [Comment deadlines run through March 25th] We will walk through them all during our Mechanical Engineering monthly teleconference. See our CALENDAR. #StandardsGeorgia
ASHRAE contributes mightily to the tributary we call the regulatory "stream"; not the least of which is the stream of prescriptive energy conservation concepts. Technical committees developing ASHRAE consensus documents release public review documents in 30-to-90 day intervals. Another two redlines have been released for public review. [Comments are April 22nd]
From our vantage--following standards action across the entire sweep of US consensus standards--the International Energy Conservation Code is one of the most widely studied codes in the land; driven by fierce economic and political agendas. Hearings on proposals begin April 28 - May 8 in Albuquerque. We encourage facility executives to fund the attendance by front line staff informed of the user-interest debacle we describe in our ABOUT. #StandardsNewMexico
