Operations and Facilities

Operations and facilities personnel help to plan, obtain funding for, and implement tasks affecting College of Arts and Sciences departments and units such as "rehabs" of offices and instructional or research areas, "quality-of-life" projects (QOL), academic equipment replacement (AER, including CAS departmental photocopiers and PCs for CAS faculty and staff), and building infrastructure issues. Often this involves close coordination with Building Managers; Assistants-to-Chairs; Facilities, Design, and ConstructionCampus Operations and MaintenanceDivision of Information Technology (DoIT) and Client Support; Telecommunications; Property Control; and University Police. Funds available for such tasks are limited, so an important part of our job is to help to establish priorities. Note that there are often rigid deadlines for applying for and spending funds, especially those from State sources.
