After a Component Champion has completed the inspection and identified any deficiencies and the projects necessary to correct them, the projects are entered into the R&R master database. At that time, the Component Champion determines the priority of this project based on the review of all the other projects within their discipline; the most critical projects are moved to the highest priority. The selection of projects for funding is based on the following criteria listed in prioritized order:
The R&R Program must focus on life safety issues first and the structural integrity of building exteriors (the building "envelope") next. Addressing these issues first will prevent the harmful effects of weather/climate and water damage (including its associated health risks) and protect the building exteriors and systems. Infrastructure and Utilities are prioritized accordingly:
Certain situations may call for adapting the project list to meet life safety or more critical needs. The focus is to address those issues with the highest risk of failure (the worst of the worst) first.
