Re: CSM Facility Project Request Form
Copies: Jose Nunez
CSM is introducing a new Facilities Project Request Form, to provide a process whereby funding requests
for facilities projects can be tracked and evaluated.
The Facilities Project Request Form is intended to close the gap between standard maintenance and
operations services performed at no cost to the requestor, service requests for which the requestor has
available funds to support implementation, and Capital Projects funded by local bond funds or State
Capital Outlay funds. The intent is to pilot this process for a semester, and then to evaluate the submittal
and evaluation process for efficiency and effectiveness.
Please utilize this form if you desire a facility upgrade or repair that:
Requires a funding source (not included in standard facilities maintenance services)
Lacks available funds to support implementation
This form is not intended for use to address emergency issues, e.g. an imminent threat to persons,
property or equipment. In case of such emergency issues, please contact Facilities directly at ext. 6113.
Some examples of appropriate requests for this process include:
additional electrical circuits in a given area
install electronic locks at doors with manual locks
replace, upgrade or add lighting
replace or purchase furniture or fixtures, such as window treatments
Please complete the form and submit to your Dean or Administrator for approval. If approved by the
Dean or Administrator, they will forward the form to Facilities to estimate the cost of implementation.
