New facilities work request

Facilities has upgraded its university work request system. You may access the new request form here. The link is also available on the facilities website. The old work request link is no longer accessible. 

The new work request system will essentially function the same way as the old one, but will look a little different. Instructions for creating work requests and additional information are still available on facilities' website. Some of the new features of the upgraded system include:

  • Compatibility with multiple web browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, etc.
  • Ability to attach documents or files to a work request (coming soon)

We will keep you posted when new improvements and features are available. If you have any questions or encounter any issues with the new work request system, please contact the facilities service coordinators at 913-588-7928 or via email


Car-Free Challenge

Bob PisciottaEvery May, the Kansas City metropolitan area holds the Car-Free Challenge to promote all the viable means of commuting to work and running errands that do not depend on your automobile. Every year, KU Medical Center fields a team, and this year's challenge will be May 12–16. We are looking for team members who commute to work by bicycle, bus or carpool. If you fit this description, please consider joining the team. 

You may register here. When registering, be sure to choose the KUMC team. Then log your commuting or errand miles on the challenge website during challenge week. The Car-Free KC website will keep track of your mileage and you can follow your personal and team progress. 

If you have any questions, contact Bob Pisciotta, Enterprise Project Management Office, at 913-588-7311.

And remember last month's energy awareness message. If you walk, bike or carpool for your commute at least one or two days a week, you can help save the air we breathe. View poster.
