FAC 101: Campus Maintenance Responsibility
To establish responsibility for campus maintenance
All departments or individuals requiring Facilities Management services
Since Facilities Management has been charged with the overall responsibility for campus building maintenance, only Facilities Management is authorized to perform building maintenance, painting, remodeling, or construction work (up to $25,000 in labor, no limit for materials), unless Facilities Management issues a building permit to the requester. Any work done by other university entities or by outside contractors is subject to inspection by Facilities Management to ensure that building code requirements are met and that university standards are maintained.
As a general rule, if a piece of equipment is not part of a building system for which Facilities Management has full operating control, then regardless 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. If extenuating circumstances exist, they should be discussed with the appropriate Facilities Management assistant or associate director.
Most service needs at ASU campuses can be accommodated by the campus' department of Facilities Management. Because of the distances between the campuses, ASU at the Tempe campus Facilities Management responds to service requests from other campuses on an as-time-is-available basis.
Since ASU campuses are separately budgeted, the services of ASU at the Tempe campus Facilities Management to other ASU campuses is on a charge-back basis.
