    What is the difference between equipment and facilities. Does IT equipment equals to iT facilities?

    facilities normally refers to what is available - eg. a room available with computers in it - whereas equipment refers more specifically to objects that are used, eg. computers, printers.

    To simplify:

    facilities = buildings
    equipment = machines
