T-Ducks in a Row #115 – Supplemental Maintenance Budget Request (BR-11) Process Improvement

WHAT?  Facilities Services has developed a process improvement to increase the efficiency in Richland’s annual Supplemental Maintenance Budget Request (BR-11) process.

WHY?  This process improvement will allow Facilities Services staff to manage more efficiently minor construction/renovation projects within budget and on schedule.

WHO?  Any school, division, department, or workgroup desiring construction or renovation to its area should complete a BR-11 form and obtain its area vice president’s signature prior to submitting the request to Facilities Services by the published deadline.

WHERE?  This process change will be effective college-wide, better align with the college’s annual budget cycle, and minimize the occurrence of out-of-cycle requests.

HOW?  The new BR-11 form is available on Richland’s Intranet website at

https://dsc3.dcccd.edu/intranet/dcccd/rlc/BRforms/BR11-FacilitiesMaintenance.pdf .

WHEN?  The new, improved Supplemental Maintenance Budget Request (BR-11) process is effective immediately.

HOW ELSE?  To learn more about this process improvement and the necessary steps to request a minor construction/renovation project, a Facilities 101 professional development presentation will be offered October 29 at 1:00 p.m. and October 31 at 9:00 a.m.  Registration information is available on the TOLI Training Calendar website http://www.richlandcollege.edu/thunderwater/calendar.php
