Start Time: 10/15/2018 10:00:00 AM
End Time: 10/15/2018 11:00:00 AM

This session offers both an owner's perspective and an assessment provider's perspective on the why (and how) of performing assessments, including the decision to work with either a third party or with internal personnel. Additional perspectives on how to best determine schedules and obtain significant capital funding will also be shared. Co-presented by Matt Forshey of American Electric Power and David Boston of TiePoint-bkm Engineering, the presentation details the reasons to perform critical facility assessments, provides recommendations on methodology, and describes significant benefits for data center owners.

Learning Objectives:
1. Determine how to turn assessment findings into needed resources (capital funding and personnel)
2. Review best practices for preparing for and conducting effective critical facility assessments
3. Examine the event which was the catalyst for AEP’s multiple critical facility assessments
4. Gain justifications for conducting assessments of your own critical facilities
