Our Objectives

Sustain a high-performance work culture

Our staff will remain responsive to customer needs. We will maintain a work culture that enables and encourages employees to perform at their highest potential and to operate in a proactive, innovative, and values-driven manner. We will always recognize the abilities of our employees as a cornerstone to our success, by supporting professional development and cross-training. We will continue to build and maintain our credibility through our emphasis on quality and responsiveness as the key components to every facet of our jobs.

Use resources effectively

We will continue to use and establish a variety of management strategies to ensure that financial resources are deployed as effectively as possible, from hiring and retaining a high-performance workforce to continuously improving our administrative and business processes. We will strive to balance competitive costs with quality service deliveries; work at holding contractors to the same standards against which we measure ourselves; and employ measurements and benchmarks to evaluate the quality of our work products, the efficiency of our operation, and our levels of responsiveness. 

Continuously meet or exceed our customers' expectations

Facilities Services recognizes that quality customer service is the key building block of strategic direction. We will continue to improve customer service, with an emphasis on our staff being even more proactive in asking customers about their needs and listening to customers to better understand about their needs; integrate and use advancements in technology to better serve customers; and develop innovative, accessible, accurate, and timely communications systems.
