4. After I submit my request what is the next step?

Depending upon the scope of the work or project requested, your project will be routed accordingly. If your request is small in nature and can be executed solely by one of our eight technical trade shops, you will be contacted by that shop to schedule the work. Should your request require project management, your project will be routed to either a Project Manager (PM) or Construction Planner (CP), who will contact you to arrange an initial consultation and assess your project's requirements. Both the PM and CP will develop a scope of work, a project schedule, and a project estimate for your authorization and funding.

PMCS meets its client’s design and construction needs in accordance with the university’s Handbook of Operating Procedures Section 4-1030 and Handbook of Business Procedures Section 7.7.10.
