APPA, the association serving educational facilities professionals, is currently collecting data from fiscal year 2005-06 for its Facilities Core Data Survey. The Facilities Core Data Survey is an annual collection and reporting of data related to educational facilities and an integrated research information database.

Developed and produced by APPA's Information and Research Committee, the 12-module survey takes a comprehensive look at facilities operating costs, staffing levels and expenses, building and space costs and usage, strategic financial measures, and other key data points.

The annual survey results in a set of Facilities Performance Indicators reports published on APPA's website and may be purchased online. Pricing and level of accessibility to confidential information are based on an institution's membership in APPA and its participation in the survey itself. Institutions who participate in the survey receive a discounted price on the Facilities Performance Indicators reports.

All educational institutions are invited and encouraged to participate in the 2005-06 Facilities Core Data Survey.
