Work Order System

BC's Work Order (WO) system is used to request a large number of services through the Facilities Services Department. The Operations Manager at Higgins is responsible for initiating, expediting and tracking the WO's for the facility's infrastructure and utilities and also for the WO's pertaining to the operation of the Biology and Physics Departments within Higgins Hall. Contact Facilities Services (formerly Buildings and Grounds) for repair or maintenance services not within Higgins Hall.
