In the interest of transparency, UAMS Parking Operations has established this page to share our Performance Standards along with the Performance Measures that represent just a few of our primary services. The metrics shown below are used to gauge our current performance, show evidence of progress that has been made, as well as identify areas that still may need improvement. In these challenging financial times, UAMS Parking Operations is working hard to maintain and improve essential services in cost efficient and effective ways.
Parking is a finite resource and it is important to maximize facility utilization to best serve our patients, visitors, and employees. It is an industry best practice to overbook parking areas to maximize facilities utilization. It is our goal to maximize facilities utilization while keeping overfills to a minimum. Facility inventory reports are maintained to monitor occupancy rates and sustain optimal subscriber levels. Average Parking Occupancy is frequently monitored and adjustments to overbooking rates are made accordingly.
This graph represents Average Parking Occupancy. Our current goal of Average Parking Occupancy is 85%. Historical experience has shown that this average maximizes the utilization of spaces with minimal overfills here at UAMS.
Provide clean and well maintained facilities
Parking operations manages a comprehensive cleaning and facilities maintenance program. Cleaning and maintenance standards have been developed and the UAMS parking facilities are consistently monitored through random zone inspections.
Our current goal of routine cleaning inspection scores is 80%. The goal takes into consideration time of cleaning service and inspection along with the resources required to reach 100%.
Through effective routine maintenance and capital improvements, we can maximize the useful life or our facilities. A deferred maintenance list has been created and prioritized based on safety, critical need, and cost. Deferred maintenance items are being addressed as funds become available.
