What is AOS?

Asset Optimization Services is an integrated FM team focused on advancing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) practices. This integrated asset management strategy drives maintenance, reliability, and energy efficiency throughout the entire life cycle of an asset, from design to demolition. AOS manages assets from individual equipment to entire building systems across the University of Iowa campus.

AOS is a collaborative team in Facilities Management that leverages Utilities, Building Operations and Maintenance, and Design and Construction to make informed, data-based decisions on building systems and equipment.


"AOS is grounded in the principles of organizational thinking and action, incorporating Processes, People, Systems, and a culture that centers around our FM core value of Stewardship."

- Andy Van Etten, Associate Director, Asset Optimization Services
