Facilities and Services (FS) is funded to operate and maintain Instructional and General (I&G) facilities. In most cases, routine maintenance and repairs for I&G building structures, systems, components, and/or infrastructure are paid for by FS. FS will prioritize work on a schedule that matches existing staffing and funding resource allocations, and will occasionally place work on a backlog list.
Departments will be charged for discretionary service requests involving non-routine work, building alterations, renovations, improvements, additional services, and requests that are outside the cycle/schedule of routine maintenance. Most services provided to I&G facilities are also available for auxiliary-funded facilities.
As a general rule of thumb: if the equipment or building system already exists or is fixed in place then FS is funded to maintain it. If the equipment or system can be moved should a department relocate then it is generally considered to be the fiscal responsibility of the department.
