Estate Management Statistics
The Estate Management Statistics (EMS) was established by the Association of University Estates Directors in 1999 to provide the Higher Education sector with standardized, reliable and useful property information to help managers understand current performance, promote sharing of best practice and drive improvements.
The main objective in setting up EMS was to give UK Higher Education institutions access to relevant information to enable better strategy and decision making. EMS continues to be about improving estate management performance through facilitating access to objective information for:
- monitoring and enhancing performance
- demonstrating added value
- communicating with the rest of the business and key stakeholders.
The EMS collection is administered via the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). HESA is the official agency for the collection, analysis and dissemination of quantitative information about higher education.
