Project requests

Project requests beyond normal maintenance work orders, require a Renovation/Minor Construction Projects Approval Form be submitted by the Dept. Head, Dean or appropriate Vice President.  Upon submission, each project is assigned a tracking number that is used for tracking that particular project.  This option will allow the Project Facilitator to schedule a time with the requestor to investigate the need and practicality of the project.  The project will be thoroughly discussed and a cost estimate will be provided only after approval of the project has been granted. Once the cost estimate is provided, funding shall be established through a priority review.  At that time, it shall be determined if other projects will be deleted or shifted in the project listing, dependent upon emergency or need.  Please note that projects will always be referred to by the unique number assigned at the time of the submittal.

If in the event that the Project Facilitator decides that the project requested does not meet with the scope and intent of providing necessary modifications that are beneficial to the University Student Body, the respective Department Head, or Dean may appeal to their respective Vice-President for review.  This decision may be upheld or denied by the Vice-Presidents Council or the President.  It shall not be the intent of the Project Facilitator to promote or deny projects based on anything but prudent and wise use of tax dollars that benefit the students at Texas A&M University-Commerce.

Due to the limited amount of funds available, the following limits shall be used in determining the appropriate level of authority given for approval of submittals:

Projects with a value up to $5,000 - Approval by Department Head

Projects with a value of $5,000 up to $15,000 - Approval by the Dean

Projects with a value of $15,000 and above - Approval by the respective Vice-President.

A number of projects are submitted to Facilities for cost estimates and then submitted to the President and respective Vice Presidents for review at the beginning of the Fiscal Year.  Once the review has taken place projects approved and funded are submitted again for final acceptance.  In the event that a project is accepted, but not funded due to the lack of funds or other reasons, it will migrate to the next fiscal year for possible funding.
