Costs and Estimates

The Facilities Management education and general (E&G) budget covers the university’s E&G and research facilities’ costs of operation and maintenance (i.e., base provisions). However, the cost of operation and maintenance services provided to auxiliary enterprises are billed to the respective auxiliary enterprise unit. Examples of base provisions include, but are not limited to, utilities (e.g., electrical, natural gas, steam, water, sewer and fuel oil), maintenance, plumbing, mechanical systems, electrical, fire alarms, building automation systems, and building-related interior and exterior repairs. 

The cost of services requested by departments or schools that are not considered base provisions, including improvements, additions and modifications, are billed to the requesting department or school regardless of whether they are E&G-funded or auxiliary enterprise departments or schools. 

Many of the Facilities Management services require an assessment and estimate. Estimates can be requested via the Facilities Self Service. Continue reading for FY2021 shop rates.
