Facilities Management Implements Strategic Project Planning Criteria / Deadlines

September 6, 2012-Houston-

Facilities Management has successfully completed 161 projects this summer with another 30 to be completed this fall, and for the FY12 year has resourced 402 projects totaling $27.84 million. Through this effort, we have learned that the most successful projects are those projects with a complete plan and scope that can be competitively bid. In an effort to strategically prepare for the next fiscal year, Facilities Management is asking that anyone who wants to complete a project over winter break 2012 or summer break 2013 should submit their work/project requests by the timelines noted below. These timeframes will enable the appropriate amount of time for project planning and competitive bidding.  Any requests made after these deadlines, depending on scope, may have to be placed on an adjusted schedule.  Requests will be prioritized in the order they were planned and received. 

PROJECT REQUEST DEADLINES 

For Completion During Project Deadline
Winter Break  2012 Work Request and Small Project September 24, 2012
Summer Break 2013 Work Request and Small Project November 1, 2012

We will make every attempt to fulfill all requests; however based on scope and procurement guidelines, the project manager or in-house construction team assigned to your request may need to work with you to complete the work on a differing schedule.

Thank you in advance for your planning support and cooperation. We look forward to another successful year supporting your small project and renovation needs.
