Service Operations Support (SOS)

Service Operations Support (SOS) is the center of communications and work control for Physical Plant. The SOS team receives and processes all Service Requests that are submitted into FAMIS by our campus customers. After a Service Request is submitted, the SOS team evaluates the request, confirms that the proper budget is responsible, and then assigns the work to the appropriate crew or zone within Physical Plant. The crew or zone then schedules the work based on priority level, and dispatches the necessary personnel to respond.
