    Hi Arthur,

    We are much the same as Daniel, Academic infrastructure is the responsibility of the Academic departments. Facilities supports logistically and with connections into building systems. It is a struggle with some areas and departments from a safety and risk managment perspective. We reuqire them to provide copies of inspections and work done, also that they contract licensed contractors who are fully insured to complete maintenance.

    Cheers

    PSAB 3280 ARO Changes and New Reporting Obligations for Public Entities
    Description: Starting in 2022 (financial reporting year-end March 31, 2022) the Public Sector Accounting Board (PSAB) section PS 3280 – Asset Retirement Obligations (ARO), will require public organizations to report and value their environmental liabilities as part of their annual financial accounting. This will require a more specific evaluation of the environmental retirement costs of any public sector assets.

    This webinar will present you with an overview of the Asset Retirement Obligations standard and provide you with guidelines for effective compliance. We have assembled a panel of four subject matter experts to help guide us through the requirements of this standard and suggested strategies for gathering and validating the required data.

    We currently do not have that issue, but in other areas of the city such as golf courses and the University, they utilize herding dogs who are trained to scare and keep the geese on the move. This works well to discourage nesting.

    At Confederation, this is what we have in place to date as per our IT dept.

    1. If you opened your computer labs for the 2020-21 academic year how did you clean the keyboard and mouse?

    One PC lab was opened. Students were responsible for using supplied wipes to wipe down keyboard and mouse after use.

    2. Are you opening up your computer labs for the fall semester?

    TBD

    3. How will you be cleaning the keyboard and mouse at each station?

    If we open additional PC labs, it will be self serve cleaning most likely.

    4. Has their been consideration to move more towards “bring your own device (laptop)”?

    We use software tools to enable a BYOD solution – in particular Apps Anywhere and Splashtop.

    5. Has their been consideration to have students bring their own keyboard and mouse?

    No.

    Cheers
    Robin
