Request for Facilities Services Questions

A completed and approved RFS is required for purchasing new furniture (totaling $2000 or more), renovating, constructing and/or altering any part of The College’s infrastructure or facilities.

You may obtain copies of the RFS form on our website, request it directly from the Facilities and Construction Department , or your campus Administrative Dean/Facilities Services Coordinator (James Braswell, Don Spies, and Joseph Hebert).

Please fill out the form as completely as possible, including your contact information with a phone number where you can be reached. Include as much detail about your request as possible including any known funding options.

If your project is already active in the design phase or beyond, you do not need to submit an RFS form.

If you would like to send items to auction please follow the steps prescribed for disposing of college assets. This process is described on the form ITEMIZED LIST FOR AUCTION. The form can be found on the College website under “Itemized list for auction form”.

This can be requested though a Maintenance Work Order.

Your RFS needs to be approved by your Administrative Dean/Facilities Services Coordinator and your Campus President. RFS’s for work at the District Administration Office should be approved by the responsible Vice Chancellor.

Please mail your approved RFS form to:
Director Project Services
Bill Dowell
District Office Suite 211
281-998-6122

You can also scan and email the completed RFS form to: Jessica.Garcia@sjcd.edu
 

Once your RFS has been received and entered into our project management information system, you will receive a receipt confirmation by email.

Facilities & Construction will maintain a listing of all project information on our college website. This information will be updated on the web site monthly. If you have urgent questions or need more timely status information, please contact the assigned Project Manager.

Generally speaking, maintenance work orders are used to repair existing equipment or request preplanned service such as housekeeping or meeting set up services. If something is broken, request maintenance services. If you need to renovate a space, construct a building or replace classroom furniture, you need an RFS.

You may or may not need an RFS. To answer the question, you must first understand the following concerns - Does the existing room where you propose to put the new equipment have sufficient electrical power supply? Does the equipment you are installing create heat that is going to make everyone uncomfortable when it operates? Does the operation of the equipment create a hazard to the occupants of the building? Will the space you would like to install the equipment in need any alteration? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, you need an RFS.

Demands on the Facilities and Construction group are growing, just as they are for the rest of the College departments. One of the worst problems we can have is to loose or miss-prioritize a request. This form is the first step in a comprehensive process of managing facilities construction, renovation and remodeling requests for the department. The new RFS process will provide for proper assignment of project managers, periodic College leadership review of all project progress and periodic review of project sequencing.

The Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) is used to process thousands of requests per year which are of a different nature and do not require campus leadership approval. The volume of RFS’s will be much lower, may include attached documents, and require multiple approvals. For this reason, we chose a separate RFS request process.

Aside from College leadership requiring that all construction and renovation projects be managed though the Facilities & Construction department, it is critical that alterations to buildings and facilities be made in a safe, regulatory compliant and consistent manner throughout the College.

Furniture is generally purchased with new buildings as part of the FFE (furniture, fixtures and equipment) package. Currently, the Facilities & Construction group is working with architects and a local distributor to develop a selection of furniture for use with the 2008 Bond program. This selection of furniture will support the desire to improve overall furniture value and appearance for the college.
Similarly, several renovations and new office projects are underway where large quantities of furniture will be purchased from this college-wide furniture selection. In an effort to support the One College initiative, the Facilities & Construction group will support college customers needing furniture to assure that the manufacturer and make and model of furniture matches that being purchased for other projects for the College.

Email or call one of the Facilities & Construction department members for clarification. You should receive a reply within one work day.
