The data inconsistency between IC2 Gross Floor Building Space and subsequent credits (OP1, OP3, OP5, and OP22) is due to the fact the IC2 values represent Bard as it exists in FY2016/17 at the time of STARS submission, and the Performance Year values are for FY2015/16 (i.e. the most recent and complete set of data, 1 full year, for GHG emissions and energy consumption). In particular, this is due to the purchase/addition of the Montgomery Place property to the Bard Campus in January 2016, when additional acreage and buildings were added.

IC2 “gross floor building space” is value for FY2016/17 = 1,248,230 ft2
(i.e. after purchase of Montgomery Place property).
Performance Year “gross floor building space” is value for FY2015/16 = 1,204,980 ft2 (i.e. before purchase of Montgomery Place property).
