The Systems Control Center (SCC) is a 24/7 operation responsible for monitoring Building Automation Systems (BAS) to include Fire and Life Safety, Energy and Utilities, and other critical mission functions for both Academic and UVA Health facilities. They also serve as Facilities Managements (FM's) after-hours customer support function dispatching emergent response services across Grounds. Staffed with highly trained operators, the center monitors over 100,000 building system points, manages over 800 Emergency Procedures and receives more than 16,000 calls each year ranging from routine equipment maintenance actions to facility emergencies such as fires, floods, and/or elevator entrapments.

In this role, they serve as FM's liaison to the Universities Critical Incident Management Team (CIMT) and provides support for preparedness activities, aids with organizing and coordinating response and recovery efforts, as well as provides guidance for mitigation strategies based on multiple hazards that could affect operations across Grounds.
