Below is some information to help clarify which forms should be used by Liberal Arts units when submitting online requests via the university's WORQS website.
Please note that LAITS is trying to use WORQS forms consistently in order to centrally manage facility requests for the college. As the WORQS instructions are confusing and somewhat contradictory to how Liberal Arts uses the forms, please submit online requests per these instructions below:
To request routine maintenance or minor repairs of buildings and offices -- or call the Facilities Service Center at 512-471-2020. Appropriate requests include issues related to restrooms, water fountains, sinks, plumbing, non-hazardous spill cleaning, light fixtures, faulty electrical outlets, room temperatures, leaks, elevators, animal control, insect infestations, landscaping, malfunctioning door hardware, etc. These requests are generally what one should consider part of the functionality of the building. A university account IS NOT required because your unit should not bear the cost.
CRIB ESTIMATE REQUEST (LAITS use only)
Liberal Arts units should NOT submit this type of document. It will be used by LAITS staff to request Rough Order of Magnitude (ROM) estimates for capital renovation and construction projects.
CRIB WORK REQUEST
To request estimates or services that are not appropriate for a SERVICE REQUEST. Appropriate requests include issues related to painting, carpet installations, electrical work, etc. A university account IS required (even if only requesting an estimate) so that it is clear what type of funding will be used if the project moves forward. If requesting an estimate instead of performance, simply include mention of this in the text of the Detailed Description of Work (e.g. "Please provide estimate before performing work.")
To request common services, including issues related to furniture repair, new signage, rekeying of locks, non-event moving services, non-inventory surplus, requests for recycling or trash bins, non-event custodial cleanings, and unscheduled landscape services. A university account IS required, and estimates may be requested. If requesting an estimate instead of performance, simply include mention of this in the text of the Detailed Description of Work (e.g. "Please provide estimate before performing work.")
To request services for or related to a scheduled activity or event -- including event reservations in the CLA Glickman Conference Center. The form allows for the ordering and setting up of risers, plants, furniture, trash cans, drinking water, easels, audio/visual equipment, custodial cleaning before/during/after event, etc. A university account IS required, and estimates may be requested by checking the designated box on the form.
