On campus at UAF our cleaning services are managed by the contractor GCA Services group. GCA takes care to make sure that the products they use clean the campus in a way that makes it safe and sanitary, as well as having as small a negative impact on there environment as possible. Some highlights of there cleaning service include:Custodial effectiveness assessments; Continuous improvement training for all associates; Standardized sustainable cleaning processes and procedures; Implementation strategies crafted with experience-based best practices; Experienced, invested, interested, and accountable management; Certified sustainable chemicals, products, tools, and equipment at competitive prices; Comprehensive communications protocol with client, building occupants and facilities maintenance staff; Recycling programs, duct cleaning, filter changing, etc.; GREENGUARD-compliant program with Green Seal compliant products. Note that for part two of this question we are not able to get the numbers for the amount spent on cleaning supplies; however, we were given the percent of money spent on certified green products. That percent is the number we entered.
