Utility Announcement 

ISS and FM leadership announced the formation of a stand-alone Utilities department which will report directly to Lisa Marbury, AVP of Campus Environments & Facilities. A memo was sent by ISS Administration to all FM staff via email earlier today (4/1). Please check your inbox for more information. Managers and supervisors, please share the memo with those staff without regular access to email.  


COVID Mask Signage 

With the updated COVID mask guidance, FM staff are tasked with removing adhesive signage from facilities to help prevent unnecessary damage. Remember, some facilities, particularly those with medical functions, may still require the signs, so please be proactive and work with building occupants to arrange for removal.

The PEP deadline passed on March 31 and FM leadership would like to thank everyone for completing the assessments and setting new goals for the coming year.
