Facilities Assessor


Recruitment #24-005476-0005


The mission of the Interagency Commission on School Construction is to achieve a safe, healthy, and educationally sufficient learning environment for every child attending a public school in Maryland. Our vision is a fiscally sustainable statewide portfolio of K-12 school facilities that will remain educationally sufficient for current and future generations of students and teachers.




351 W. Camden Street
Baltimore, MD 21201

Main Purpose of Job

The main purpose of this position is to assess the condition and educational sufficiency of public PK-12 school facilities to determine variation from standards and best practices and advise for the purpose of improvement function and affordability. The passage of the 21st Century School Facilities Act (2018 Md. Laws, Chap. 14) requires that the Interagency Commission on School Construction (IAC) conduct ongoing school-facility assessments so that school data are never more than four years old. Such assessments and reports help safeguard that the State’s investments in school facility improvements are being properly stewarded, that capital improvements will not be needed prematurely due to lack of maintenance, and that students, teachers, and educational support staff in the State of Maryland will be provided with safe, healthy, and educationally supportive learning environments over time. The incumbent assesses public PK–12 school facilities in accordance with established procedures. The incumbent assesses—visually and otherwise—the condition of building systems and their components as organized into a set of IAC-determined categories and confers condition ratings based upon the observed remaining useful lifespans as estimated by the assessor. In addition, this position is responsible for identifying and propagating best practices in facilities stewardship. The 21st Century School Facilities Act (2018 Md. Laws, Chap. 14) gives the IAC a role in identifying best practices in school construction and facilities management and making those best practices available to LEAs. This position will help the IAC carry out this role and facilitate the sharing of information amongst the LEAs.


The Facilities Assessor will conduct on-site assessments of the condition and educational sufficiency of public PK–12 school facilities that Maryland’s local education agencies (LEAs) are responsible for maintaining and advise school districts on ways to improve facilities’ functionality and affordability.


· Education: An associate’s degree from an accredited college or university in a technical, specific, or engineering discipline such as architecture, engineering, construction project management, or a related field.

· Experience: Two years of experience assessing school facilities or as a Facilities Manager, Construction Project Manager, Engineer, or comparable qualified professional whose work has involved the following: design, construction, operations, repair, and maintenance of buildings or system services; experience in team management and leadership; and the use of computer or web-based facility management systems such as Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) or Enterprise Asset Management (EAM software).


· One year of experience assessing building systems and familiarity with the life cycles of typical building systems.
· One year of experience in building system Local, State, and National codes.
