E&I Sightlines Contract


Sightlines is a leader in helping mission-driven institutions better manage their facilities operations and capital investments. Sightlines provides tools for strategic planning, benchmarking and analysis that generate an independent, reliable exploration of campus performance utilizing the nation’s largest database of verified facilities metrics.

As a colleague rather than a vendor, Sightlines does not seek to outsource facilities operations, sell facilities equipment, or provide design services. The strategic assessment of your facilities assets is their core business.

Sightlines visits each campus annually to collect more than 200 indicators of facilities and financial performance in order to identify trends and provide useful analysis and benchmarks. With Sightlines, you’ll receive the context and validation you need to make sound, data driven decisions about your campus facilities.

Using Sightlines’ services available through E&I, finance and facilities leaders are able to:
  • Use the industry’s most reliable benchmarking to separate fact from fiction
  • Optimize and effectively sequence capital investments
  • Address the backlog of deferred maintenance
  • Develop a strategy to steward physical assets
  • Improve the effectiveness of facility operations
  • Better serve students, faculty, staff, and visitors

Sightlines will help you plan, prioritize, and manage your campus’s physical assets to get the most from your limited resources. This competitively solicited contract delivers Sightlines’ annual holistic Facilities Benchmarking & Analysis as well as Building Portfolio Solutions designed to provide detailed facilities assessments and capital plans.

Sightlines works with over 450 institutions in 41 States, the District of Columbia and Canada each year. Although rooted in higher education, Sightlines members include K-12, healthcare, and government entities.
