Facility Condition Index
An FCI represents the ratio of the cost to correct a facility's deficiencies to the current replacement value of the facility. For example, if a building's replacement value is $1,000,000 and the cost of correcting its existing deficiencies is $100,000, the building's FCI is $100,000 ÷ $1,000,000; that's 0.10 or 10 percent. The larger the FCI, means poorer condition of the facility. General industry guidelines are: 0 - 5% is good; 5.01 - 10% is fair; and greater than 10% is poor. An FCI uses as the basis for analysis an FCA.
