Facilities Improvements Requests

Please submit detailed proposals to me well before the deadline of Wednesday, September 27. Thanks.


The Facilities Committee invites your facilities improvements requests for the 2006-07 fiscal year. We ask that Senior Managers assemble all requests from units for which they are responsible. Once we receive these, our task is to organize details, determine project feasibility, identify areas of greatest need, and obtain cost estimates from U-M Plant and other sources.
Your requests should consider the needs of students, faculty, and staff, while taking into account safety, maintenance, comfort, and aesthetic considerations. All University facilities should be:

free of hazards
able to provide a pleasant, clean appearance
appropriate to the specific area's function
compatible with existing furnishings and structure
conducive to the preservation of the collections

The simple form below will guide you. Please submit all requests to the committee (facilities.committee@umich.edu) either in e-mail form or as attachments. Feel free to send any additional information—catalogs or other printed material—directly to me via campus mail. Specific cost estimates, while helpful to the committee, are not required.
If you are uncertain whether a particular project is a facilities request, as opposed to equipment, just submit the request to us. All requests deemed "equipment" or some other category will be referred accordingly, and we will notify you of the change.
Please have your requests to us as soon as possible but no later than Wednesday, September 27. This ensures that we will have sufficient time to gather information, obtain estimates, and organize our recommendations for Executive Council.
On behalf of the Facilities Committee,
Paul Barrow
