The project department exists to coordinate all modifications, additions and enhancements to existing facilities. With standard procedures and policies in place for project approval and administration, the project department provides financially sound and consistent levels of service for all projects.
There is a significant difference between project work and maintenance work. All project-level modifications, additions or enhancements, must be approved through the Physical Plant and appropriate Administrators.
No project work may be performed at any building without Physical Plant approval.
When a work request is beyond the scope of maintenance, a project request must be submitted. Use the examples in the chart below to identify what is a project and what is maintenance.
