Space & Equipment Planning System (SEPS)

The space and equipment planning system (SEPS) is a health system planning tool jointly developed by the DoD and VA for use in developing detailed space plans and associated equipment requirements. The SEPS develops detailed programs for design (PFD’s) based on established space planning criteria, room design requirements, and established room templates. SEPS also produces detailed room contents reports which include Logcat/Acquisition categories and funding sources of associated equipment, medical equipment and furniture needed to support the functional requirements of a space.

SEPS is a proprietary Government software planning tool with limited access and use by:

  1. Military, Department of Defense or Veterans Administration (VA) Civilian personnel who require the use of SEPS to create space and equipment planning documents for the Military Health System (MHS) or Veterans Health Affairs.
  2. DoD/VA Contract civilians and non-DoD/VA facility planning and design firms under specific contract with the DoD/MHS/VA. Contractors must have a current Task Order Number and a Scope of Work that requires access to SEPS to produce space and equipment planning documents. The name of the Task Order Government Point of Contact is also required in order to request and receive a SEPS user account.

If you meet the above requirements, please click on REGISTER NOW to request a SEPS user account.

Training Manuals

In FY2013 the DoD and DVA collaboratively developed common strategic plan for the next five years of SEPS with a primary focus on facility life cycle management (FLCM). This approaches the value of SEPS as part of a broader ecosystem that not only includes the planning and programming stage that SEPS supports, but looks at how the product and data feeds or integrates with the related stages of the lifecycle such as design and construction and even operations.
