New York City Department of Education and School Construction Authority
The New York City Department of Education (DOE) and School Construction Authority (SCA) were tasked with formulating a Five-Year Capital Plan. The plan, which regularly encompasses $14 to $16 billion in project planning, requires that assessments are performed across the entire network of the City’s 1,700 public schools. After receiving inspections, the agency determines which problems to fix, how much each project will cost, and how long they will take to implement. Before working with Intellis, this process was arduous, inefficient, and often inaccurate.
Intellis partnered with DoED and SCA to improve the Five-Year Capital Plan by creating a ground-breaking mobile-based building condition assessment software program deployed on iPads. Streamlining the agency’s planning efforts with mobile-based software has led to critical improvements in data collection and reporting accuracy and efficiency across the City’s entire network of public school building sites.
Intellis built the Online Capital Plan Development System (oCPDS) for the DoED and customized it for the agency’s specific needs. The oCPDS gathers and organizes data collected locally at each site using iPads and translates it into bite-size projects. The agency can produce accurate projections of the money and time required to implement and complete each project.
Intellis is proud to work with the DoED and SCA to optimize and enhance the capital planning process for enhanced educational services and better facilities, thus securing safe and modern learning environments for students and teachers!
