All Departments requiring Facilities Management support for renovations, repairs, new installation or physical relocations for work deemed to be under $1,500.00 in cost funded from any source should fill out a Project Initiating form and forward to Facilities Management.

  1. register the Work Order number and forward a "Confirmation" copy to the originating Department;

  2. perform the requested work;
