All requests should provide the following information:

  • The actual location of the work being requested must also be included, by building and room number or other specific location (as for work in stairwells, corridors, or outdoors).

In those cases, please provide valid chartfield and Accountable Officer/Designee contact information in the description of your request. These requests must be routed for approval through the FAMIS application to an authorized Accountable Officer/Designee for the specified account.
