10.2. At a minimum, the higher education facilities information system shall serve the following purposes:
10.2.a. Develop and maintain a statewide inventory of higher education facilities, including those acquired by long-term lease, lease-purchase or other arrangement whereby the institution has long-term beneficial use. The inventory shall include, but is not limited to, the institution and campus location of the facility, the construction date, the original cost, square footage, floor plans, type of construction, ownership status, the purposes for which it is used, the current replacement cost and any other data the Council and Commission considers appropriate;

Separate calculations will be made for education and general and auxiliary facilities.
10.4. Each governing board and any institution under its jurisdiction shall participate and cooperate with the Council and Commission in all respects in the development and maintenance of the higher education facilities information system.
