Facilities Operations and Maintenance Chargeback Rates

Facilities Operations and Maintenance provides essential maintenance, custodial and landscaping services to campus. Routine services are performed at no-cost to campus departments, excluding auxiliary departments. However, when a department specifically requests for services to be conducted that are not routine or as part of regular maintenance schedules, a charge is applied per hour, per person to the requesting department. If special circumstances require the use of outside support, additional charges may apply. 

When a department requests work to be performed immediately, there is a minimum charge of two hours. Additional charges may be applied when specialty equipment and supplies are needed.

Charges for estimates will be billed at regular labor hours. If the work moves forward, the estimate will be included in the overall cost of the project.  If the department opts to decline the work or fails to respond to facilities after 60 days, the department will be billed for the estimate.
