9 What about facility management in traditionally procured projects and existing stock? 18,000 school buildings Maintenance responsibility is handed over to the local government/municipalities. Should this be a central government/agency responsibility? - possession of data and tools required for a sound decision making process for the maintenance of the existing stock - school buildings registry is required - examples from Ireland and Belgium Budget allocation issue - decision making tools are required - free public education equal to all citizens
