Serving the customer is a high priority of Facilities Management. We are proud to be stewards of our University.
Effective July 1, 2006 FMD will eliminate the purchasing surcharge on all furniture. All furniture purchase must be pre-approved by FMD. Purchasing cards may not be used for furniture purchases. All purchases must go through FMD and must follow University standards, policy and procedures (as per U of S Policy #3.05). University standards have been developed to ensure a safe, productive and comfortable workplace. FMD has the following committees to facilitate a proactive approach in furniture quality and maintenance:
- Accessibility committee
- Classroom Enhancement
- Ergonomic Committee
To contact the Ergonomic Committee phone 966-2046.
Facilities Management will continue to:
- maintain and repair furniture in classroom and teaching spaces, common and public areas.
- provide estimates for repairs to furniture that is no longer covered by manufacturers warranties.
Departments and units will be responsible for repairs to furniture in their office spaces, general office areas, and faculty and staff lounges.
To better serve the Universitys furniture needs, FMD has developed the Furniture QUICKShip program.
What is Quick Ship? In a hurry to get your work space up and running? Need to get a jump start on your furniture needs by utilizing the furniture Quick Ship program. FMD stocks workstations, filing pedestals, filing cabinets, book cases, and coat trees. Task, meeting, guest and classroom chairs are also available to quickly meet the needs of the University Community.
The Work Control Centre (WCC) - is the Universitys central service point for all emergency repairs, trouble calls, and service requests (including key requests). They are also the receiving point for all Work Initiation Request Forms (WIRFS) user funded projects and small jobs.
Room Scheduling Office (RSO) is a unit within Facilities Management Division. All requests for space, regardless if the event is to be held inside or outside, should be directed to Room Scheduling. Prime responsibilities include booking:
- Lecture theatres
- Seminar rooms
- Outside spaces
By using the RSO as the Key point of contact, this will facilitate the coordination of services required for the vent as well as providing information on general space use guidelines and on matters related to the liability insurance requirements. Information on room capacities and space rental rates are also available from the RSO.
As a result of changes to the SERF program, Facilities Management no longer conducts weekly or monthly sales.
The sale of surplus equipment, coordinated by Materials Handling, is now operated through an off-site auction facility.
