CAMIS Project History and Status
In 1999 the Massachusetts legislature authorized a major new initiative to manage the state's real estate, appropriating funds to conduct a comprehensive condition survey of the state's capital assets and to procure a software package to manage the collected data and assist facilities in their daily maintenance activities. As a result, the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM) has implemented the comprehensive Capital Asset Management Information System (CAMIS) program, including the CAMIS survey and the CAMIS software. Contracts for the survey and software were awarded to Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB) and FAMIS Software, Inc. (FAMIS), respectively.
Parsons Brinckerhoff, through its approved subcontractors, completed facility condition assessment surveys of over 5,000 buildings comprising over 73 million square feet of space. The data from the surveys are used to inform and support capital planning and budgeting decision-making. Preventive maintenance schedules and cost estimates for addressing the deficiencies identified through the surveys have been transferred to the CAMIS software package that DCAMM purchased for all state facilities to utilize.
