SUMMARY

Effective July 1, 1995, Facilities Management has assumed responsibility for maintaining certain types of equipment that in the past has been known as "Department Equipment." A list of equipment covered and not covered is provided.

POLICY STATEMENT

Effective July 1, 1995, Facilities Management has assumed responsibility for maintaining certain types of equipment that in the past has been known as “Departmental Equipment.”

This includes fixed equipment such as roof mounted evaporative coolers; roof mounted and split system air conditioners, growth chambers, non-movable walk-ins and non-movable freezers.

This does not include window air conditioners, moveable equipment such as refrigerators, ultra colds, and dishwashers or specialty laboratory equipment such as electron microscopes, and vacuum pumps. Also excluded are areas that are classified as “Enterprise Businesses” and/or Auxiliaries.

The equipment that Facilities assumes responsibility for will be treated the same as other academic equipment. This means:

1. It will be prioritized as to the importance of the University’s mission and treated accordingly.

2. It will receive routine preventative maintenance, as resources provide.

3. Major replacement, when needed, will take place when funding is received in accordance with 1, above.

Any maintenance necessary beyond that mentioned above should be discussed with staff in Facilities Management, as it may require additional funding at the department level.
