In general you will not be charged for routine maintenance, repair or replacement of parts of your building structure, systems, components and/or infrastructure. This type of work is performed by Facilities on a schedule that is determined by priority of need taking into account impact on Universities mission, life cycle of the system or component, availability of staff and funding allocations.
You will be charged for a discretionary request for service that involves a non-maintenance type request, all building alterations/improvements that are outside of the Universities annual Plant Fund Projects and the installation of or maintenance of all departmental owned equipment.
Rule of Thumb: If a piece of equipment is not part of a building system for which Facilities Management has full operating control of, whether it was installed at the time of construction or added later, it is the responsibility of the department that controls the equipment to fund its repair, maintenance, or replacement.
