Service Request Schedule/Special Event Support- In an effort to better serve our customers, the Facilities Office schedules event support and deliveries in advance. As a result of the volume of these types of requests, timely planning and notification by our customers will greatly increase our opportunity for success in this area. Because of the many varied interests and competing priorities, we must be able to better anticipate use of our limited resources. In the future, the Facilities Department may not be able to guarantee that we will service requests on short notice, since doing so may impact other customers' planned requests. Please submit your set-up requests and special event support needs at least two weeks in advance through iService Desk in order to assure that you will have the level of support that you need. Thank you for your attention in this matter.
