Public Works Projects
Because the University is a Public State agency, all projects are considered Public Works Projects. Public Works Projects are defined as , "The erection, construction, alteration, painting, repair, or improvement of any state structure, building, road, or other state improvement of any kind."
Facilities Requests are assigned to one of the departments of FD&O utilizing the i-Service Desk work order system:
Building permits are issued by a regulatory agency certifying that the design is to current building codes; seismically sound, ADA compliant, well lit, and free of any hazardous materials. Projects are accessed as to whether or not a building permit is required. Projects that require building permits can be found on our Permits page.
Department heads identify facilities needs within their departments. These needs may include renovation, addition, and building improvements. All new projects submitted require inclusion of funding. To submit the proper request form see the following list of frequently used documents.

Once FD&O has approved a project, a project manager (PM) is assigned to the project. This project manager is the liason between the department owner and the construction team. The PM meets with the department owner before securing funding, during the design phase and periodically throughout the project.
