As a follow-up to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) accreditation of 2002, CP&F continues to prepare annual and long-range assessments on the goals and objectives of the organization and how they relate to the mission, vision, and goals of the institution.

In 2004, CP&F completed its report to the Departmental Review Advisory Committee (DRAC), an internal cross-functional committee comprised of faculty and staff that ensures each department completes a cumulative five-year review according to the guidelines and stylistic consistency established.


During the same period, CP&F went through a two-year self-assessment of the Malcolm Baldrige criteria using the Georgia Oglethorpe Award, Inc. Georgia Oglethorpe Award Inc is a nonprofit public-private partnership that provides services to Georgia’s business, industry, government, education, healthcare, and nonprofit organizations. It promotes both strategic and tactical organizational performance improvement and excellence.  The results of those efforts produced two applications, a Georgia Focus Recognition award, examiner certification, a 2006 Best Practice runner-up award from the Southern Association for College and University Business Officers (SACUBO), and a 2007 recognition from NACUBO.  Following are links to the applications that were submitted:

In 2006, CP&F completed an assessment of the APPA Strategic Assessment Model (SAM) for self-improvement and benchmarking opportunities.   SAM utilizes data to create performance indicators that are indicative of overall organizational effectiveness. Participating institutions complete a survey whose results are captured and displayed within the model.  The results will be published in March 2007.

In 2007, CP&F submitted the application for the APPA Award of Excellence which is an assessment of criteria that was designed to provide a systems perspective for facilities management. Successful management of the overall facilities enterprise requires the synthesis and alignment of the organization's various components. Successful award applicants will be those who demonstrate the ability to look at the organization as a whole, focus on what is important to the whole enterprise, and concentrate on the key linkages with the goal of improving overall performance and satisfying customers.
