Meet the Team: Facilities Priority Projects (FPP)
In early 2021, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the provincial/federal government’s COVID-19 Resiliency Infrastructure Stream (CVRIS) initiative for related projects, a dedicated OECM Facilities Support Team (OFST) was formed. The OFST was comprised of seasoned Operations, Maintenance and Construction leads, Superintendents and other senior-level School Board leaders with extensive industry experience, expertise, and sector knowledge. A team of OECM staff, led by Sourcing Manager, Patti Greer, worked alongside these subject matter experts and sector advisors to fast-track several Facilities and Operations-related procurement projects for all OECM customers.
This highly effective group has since transformed into the Facilities Priority Projects (FPP) team. Their focus? To explore and lead new Facilities-related procurement project opportunities for OECM, identified as a priority by our customers from across the education, broader public, and not-for-profit sectors.
Working as part of our Strategic Sourcing Solutions Group, the dedicated FPP Team continues to prioritize and lead the procurement process on projects that will benefit your Facilities and Operations activities. The OFST continues to play an important role in endorsing and establishing future Facilities and Operations projects. Read about OECM’s upcoming sourcing projects here!
