093.0 Facility Supervisors


A. Background

Furman University facilities are to be used primarily to support the instructional program and the related activities of its students. Facility supervisors are needed in order to assure that each facility is properly maintained and used so that the best interests of the University are promoted.


B. Policy

Each facility on campus is under the immediate jurisdiction of a facility supervisor. Facility supervisors will serve as liaisons between Facilities Services and the occupants or users of the facility.


C. Guidelines

1. Responsibilities of the facility supervisor include:

a. Overseeing scheduling use of the facility consistent with principles stated in individual facility management policies so that authorized programs' events operate under optimum conditions. Charges for use of facilities should not be made without prior approval from the University’s Budget Director. The Controller/Director of Financial Services is to be notified of each event for which charges are to be made.  The Registrar coordinates the schedule for all published instructional activity.

b. Establishing and publishing operating policies for the facility in accordance with the Policy on Policies. (See Policies and Procedures Manual, File 000.5.)

c. Establishing with the authorized users and in coordination with the Public Safety Department a security plan for the facility. This plan might include the lock/unlock schedules, issuance of keys, locking of assigned areas, etc.

d. Acting as a point of coordination with Facilities Services. Major maintenance work will be scheduled through the facility supervisor so that programs conducted in the facility will not be disrupted. Facility supervisors are to report to Facilities Services any major inadequacies in housekeeping and/or maintenance.

e. Being informed about renovations and maintenance work on the facility.

f. Supporting the Public Safety Department in maintaining safe conditions in the facility.

g. Keeping the person to whom the facility supervisor reports informed about the facility and problems that have not been solved.
