U.S. Communities and National IPA, both wholly-owned subsidiaries of OMNIA Partners, have come together as OMNIA Partners, Public Sector. All public sector participants already registered with National IPA or U.S. Communities continue to have access to all contracts, with certain exceptions, in the portfolio and do not need to re-register to use a legacy National IPA, legacy U.S. Communities, or new OMNIA Partners contract. U.S. Communities and National IPA remain separate legal entities and lead agency contracts completed under each brand are effective and available for use through the contract’s approved term. In the event we believe re-registration is necessary for any reason, OMNIA Partners will let you know.

Tight budget? We’re here to help.
Recent federal stimulus legislation has created hundreds of billions of dollars in funding for buildings, industrial sites, and other infrastructure across the United States. But the opportunities don’t stop there. Schneider Electric™ also offers innovative funding models that make many modernization projects financially attainable for organizations on tight budgets. Contact Schneider Electric™ below for more information.
Building Management Systems
Building management systems (BMS) help participants of OMNIA Partners get a holistic view of building performance by providing an integrated environment across all the building systems. System integration in a building adds value and allows you to respond to occupant needs. As buildings become more connected, there is a growing need for intelligent building technologies that provide data-driven insights to maximize operational efficiency, cut energy waste, and lower overall costs.
Today’s smart buildings are starting to leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) to connect various systems and devices to a centralized technology backbone. Schneider Electric's BMS solutions enable lifetime efficiency of your building by letting you monitor, control, and optimize performance throughout its lifecycle. Switch to smart building automation and control solutions with Schneider Electric's integrated building management systems and room controllers.
What are the components of a building management system?
A building management system controls and monitors the building's mechanical and electrical equipment such as: ventilation, lighting, plumbing and water systems, power systems, fire systems, security systems, boilers/chillers, and elevators.
Why do we need a building operations system?
Because of all the building components listed above, keeping your building running reliably and efficiently can be a challenge. A BMS system can interact with all the various subsystems (e.g., power distribution, HVAC, etc.) and give you a centralized management platform, that makes staying in control of your building much easier.
What are the benefits of a building management system?
A BMS offers many benefits beyond centralized management over your building's subsystems. The top three are better energy efficiency, faster fault diagnosis and resolution, and elevated safety and comfort for occupants.
For real impact on operating costs, occupant comfort and asset value you need to keep building systems performing optimally while working with limited budgetary and maintenance resources. EcoStruxure Building Advisor is a suite of analytics and monitoring services that provides key insights into your building operations by constantly monitoring systems and identifying faults to proactively address building inefficiencies.
EcoStruxure Building Advisor is a cloud-based solution, allowing you to select the right tools for your building maintenance needs. You can access them through a single portal with a complete view of your entire building portfolio, and get more information with just a few clicks.
Building Advisor provides peace of mind, ensuring you always have access to continuous monitoring, a comprehensive view of building systems, as well as the identification of faults and inefficiencies to make data driven decisions.

What is Energy Performance Contracting?
Energy performance contracting is an innovative funding method in which an energy service company (ESCO) partners with you to take on a long-term project that tackles maintenance backlogs and facility improvements with energy efficient solutions, using the energy savings generated to pay for the larger project scope.
Once the ESCO performs an energy audit, they will make recommendations to you on where and how to improve operational and energy efficiency. The projected energy savings are guaranteed by the ESCO for the length of the project and the funds can be applied to further infrastructure updates, implementing state-of-the-art technology, and enriching the lives of those who live, work, learn, and play in your community.
These types projects offer many long-term benefits such as improved facility efficiency, occupant comfort, sustainability, financial management and environmental protection. Over the past 26 years, Schneider Electric has successfully implemented more than 750 ESPC projects across the nation, saving its clients more than $2.5 billion.
Schneider Electric through OMNIA Partners is committed to helping schools, universities, and municipalities reach big ambitions through energy savings performance contracts (ESPC).
At Schneider Electric, we do so much more than standard performance contracting . . . we help make your vision a reality! Learn more about how we can enable your school or municipality to achieve substantial operational and energy savings today.

Deliver Modern Room Control
Old or new, a building must adapt to its occupants. EcoStruxure™ Connected Room Solutions modernize your facility's infrastructure to make expansions and retrofits easier, and improve occupant comfort. A flexible, modular solution, get integrated lighting, blinds and HVAC control for operational and energy efficiency, and add on smart building services.
The value of healthy buildings
To successfully achieve and maintain healthy buildings, facility managers and buildings owners must monitor the elements that impact occupant health, including air quality, carbon dioxide, temperature and humidity, volatile organic compounds, occupancy levels, and other key metrics.
Investing in healthy buildings can result in higher employee confidence and loyalty while reduced health insurance costs. Certifications including WELL, Fitwel, and RESET offer opportunities to differentiate your buildings. View Schneider Electric's offerings here.
