Effective July 1, Facilities &Services (F&S) Construction Services department will require project managers* to sign all construction permits immediately upon completion of the final project walk-through, per division of work. This new requirement will help expedite payments to Contractor Services Contractors. A letter explaining these changes was recently sent to the university’s approved contractors.
Additional changes taking effect on July 1 include the following documents being posted to the my.FS Portal website:
- Weekly updates of expenditures against a contractors’ annual standing purchase order
- Request for Proposal No. 1ALR1209 (RFP to facilitate selection process for contractor services)
- The Mandatory Requirements for contractors (Contractors must agree to Mandatory Requirements in order to be awarded a contract under the contractor services program)
In addition, to reduce non-conforming purchases and non-compliance to the RFP, customers must accept their unit’s responsibility and requirements prior to the procurement of contractor services.
For questions please contact Dave Dowler, Associate Director Construction Services, email@example.com, 217-244-3870.
*A Project Manager has the responsibility of signing the permit along with the planning, executing, and closing of any project typically related to construction and has the authority to authorize the allocation of funding.
