Project requests are for work considered non-maintenance and funded by the requesting department. Facilities Management will either perform the non-maintenance services requested or serve as the requesting department's agent in obtaining the services from a private vendor. Examples of non-maintenance services include but are not limited to the following: a) Installation and repairs to department equipment (Group II Equipment); b) Fabrication, installation and repair of teaching aids; c) Furniture fabrication; d) Picture framing; e) Painting when done at a time other than planned for in the regular painting cycle; f) Remodeling of assigned areas as requested by departments or agencies; and g) All services provided to auxiliary and non-state funded agencies/organizations.
Project Request Form - The Project Request Form (under construction) is used by a department to initiate a project request. The form must be signed by the requester, the requester's dean or manager, and the appropriate vice president prior to being transmitted to Facilities Management. The requests are processed in the order recommended by the director of facilities, who assigns priorities to best meet the mission and strategic plan of the campus.
Project Estimate & Work Authorization - Cost estimates are provided to the department for projects prior to work beginning. An estimate is provided on an invoice form. For projects estimated under $5,000 the department signs the invoice. For projects over $5,000, funds are encumbered. Work will not commence until Facilities Management & Services is in receipt of a fully executed encumbrance from the department.
