Equipment Maintenance Management Program

The Remi Group

Equipment Maintenance

A maintenance agreement is a contract between a service provider and the property owner in which the provider agrees to perform maintenance service on the particular piece of property.  This QPA, for an Equipment Maintenance Management Program (EMMP), allows agencies to consolidate their agreements down to one while guaranteeing a minimum 27% of savings off of the existing service provider or the industry risk assessment service price. Further, with this agreement the State saves on maintenance repair costs and benefits from an industry expert that is more knowledgeable about equipment fleet service needs

Preventative and corrective maintenance is covered per the manufacturer’s specifications as well as software updates and support (following the Equipment Maintenance Service Agreement and Schedule of Covered Equipment).  While inspections of equipment are not required, the item has to be functional and in good working condition when coming onto the program. If not, it must be repaired prior to adding. Then after being added to the contract, you are covered for preventative maintenance as the manufacturer recommends and repairs as issues arise. Within reason, agencies are allowed to request preventative maintenance in advance at no additional expense.
