4. Aligned Facilities
4.1 Determine and Implement a New Facilities Configuration
Develop a new configuration of office and production facilities that will better align operational efficiency, improve collaboration and cooperation, and better support programming efforts, staff unity and morale, talent recruitment and retention, public image, north/south presence, community relations, and fundraising opportunities.
Given that this objective is about first deciding on, and then implementing, a new facilities configuration, the activities below are categorized into two phases.
Establish a building committee comprised of key Board and Staff
Establish a decision-making process and criteria, with a specific timeline
Perform an analysis of the current facilities configuration
Identify a future facilities configuration that optimizes performance
Develop a facilities program statement to assess financial requirements and feasibility to implement the modernized facilities configuration
Develop a financial plan to implement the facilities solution
Inform the public and key constituents on why we are implementing a modernized facilities configuration and how it supports our goals of improving service for the people of Maine
Implement the facilities plan
4.2 Maintain and Improve Broadcast Infrastructure
Maintain current broadcast systems while investing in new transmission technologies as appropriate.
Maintain important current over-the-air (OTA) systems, while applying new strategic technologies to serve evolving audiences and reach strategic goals
Monitor infrastructure growth in legacy systems (TV and FM broadcast) while gauging growth and investment in new transmission technologies
Define our direction regarding Next Generation TV (ATSC 3)
Continue to explore opportunities to grow broadcast capability for Maine Public Classical in under-served areas
4.3 Adapt to changes in Media Content Delivery
As broadcasters no longer defined by traditional TV and Radio platforms, we must seek ways for a nimble response to de-coupling of content and delivery mechanisms.
Identify competitive delivery methods
Revamp content development workflows to efficiently provide to all outlets
Improve systems design to facilitate development of content on all platforms
