Request Work

The Work Order Desk processes all requests for services and issues work orders for maintenance work in “State” buildings. Routine and preventive maintenance in state funded buildings is usually performed at no cost to the department (see Routine Maintenance), while work in other Non-State buildings is charged back to the department's Banner Account.
