Most routine maintenance requests for public areas, classrooms, hallways, and offices are non-billable. For example, replacement of light bulbs, door closure adjustments, plumbing problems, heat and air conditioning adjustments, broken windows, power outages, graffiti, etc., in state-supported buildings are all non-billable type maintenance requests.
Departmental requests for equipment installations, decorative improvements or services, remodeling, construction, moving or event planning are considered billable and require a C-FOAPAL account to be provided when submitting the request.
