Recharge rates in Facilities Services had not increased since 2009. The 2009 rates did not reflect the full cost of providing each service, but only reflected partial labor costs and ignored all non-labor costs (such as uniforms, telephones, fuel, vehicle maintenance, computers, etc.). Insufficient rates resulted in Facilities Services indirectly subsidizing various campus departments.
The increase in recharge rates was approved by the university’s Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Darrell Bazzell.
The impact of these recharge rate changes to Educational & General (E&G) units is limited to those departments who routinely request services beyond the current service level standard, or who request non-core services such as event & moving support. For those units who get by with the current service level standard and don’t routinely request non-core services, the impact should be negligible.
In fiscal year 2018/2019, the new rates are effective September 1, 2018. The recharge rate increases for Facilities Services began at the start of the university’s 2017/2018 fiscal year (September 1, 2017) to reflect the full costs of providing services.
Due to the magnitude of the increases, the recharge rates for core services (building maintenance, fire safety systems, custodial services and landscape services) are being phased in over multiple years, increasing by 20% each year until the full cost recovery rate is achieved.
Facilities also began charging auxiliaries for solid waste/recycling services, lock & key services and building automation system monitoring on September 1, 2017. These services were never billed to auxiliaries in the past.
The full cost recovery rate for event & moving services (which are not considered core services) became effective September 1, 2017, and is charged to both E&G and auxiliary units.
