We take great pride in keeping the campus clean and orderly and we hope you will help us continue to do just that. If there is something we have overlooked or something in need of our attention, please let us know.
Work requests are required for all services requested of our department. Facilities Management incurs costs for routine services and the requesting department will incur costs associated with non-routine services.
You may request an estimate of costs prior to your approval of the work if the cost is to exceed $250. Estimates are based upon known conditions before a project begins. Problems which arise during the course of the work add to the length of the project and to associated costs. All changes to the original work request after the work is started may affect the price. The first step to get a facilities project started is to submit a completed project request form. You can do this on-line and someone from Facilities Planning will respond promptly. No funds are spent without your approval, and you can specify that this request is for an estimate only. To access the form online: Project Request Form

To ensure proper planning of your move it is critical to include floor plans with your Work Request. On the day of the move a copy of the floor plan should be attached to the door of each room involved in the move.
Removing and packing items in furniture to be moved is the responsibility of the department requesting the move. Typically for moves within buildings, items may be left inside standard file cabinets. Desks or credenzas that need to be moved through doors should be emptied. Lateral files and bookcases must be emptied prior to moving. For moves outside a building, items must be removed from all furniture to be moved.

Include the specific location of where the painting is to be done, an itemized list of furniture to be moved to accommodate the painters; location for temporary storage of furniture; information on any existing holes, dents, or chips in wall surfaces that will need to be patched; indicate whether existing pictures, clocks, bulletin boards, and other wall ornaments will be placed back in the same location after painting; and requested dates of completion.
Facilities Management will communicate with the appropriate contractor and request that they perform a visual inspection and give a cost proposal.
