Frequently Asked Questions About Facilities Management & Planning
How can I get work done?
In order to have work of a non-emergency nature performed, a work order must be submitted through the online work order system, which requires a pre-assigned User Name and Password. Once signed in, the submitter fills out the work order form and submits the order. Work orders will be evaluated and prioritized, and Facilities staff will respond to requests as soon as possible. Please keep in mind that the work order system is designed for standard, non-urgent work orders only.
How do I obtain a User Name and Password for the work order system?
Speak to your department administrator about obtaining a User Name and Password.
How can I find out the status of a work order I have submitted?
Once you have signed in to the work order system, you will see a link on the left side of the screen titled 'View my Submissions.' By clicking on this link, you can view the status of your work order submissions.

The work I need done has to do with painting, window treatments, or flooring. How can I have this work done?
If you are in an academic department, please bring your painting, window treatment and floor work needs to the attention of your department chair. It is important that the department chair then include these needs in the Departmental Annual Report that all academic departments are asked to submit. It is from these Departmental Annual Reports that the Office of Facilities, Management & Planning prioritizes requests, based on the condition of the space that needs work and the funding available to do the work. For departments that do not submit Annual Reports, please request your painting, window treatment or flooring needs through the Dean or Vice President of your department.

How do I arrange for assistance from Facilities for special events?
