Facility Coordinators are responsible for the oversight and coordination of all facilities issues and projects and the primary point of contact with the Office of Physical Plant (OPP) for that specific college or administrative unit. Facility Coordinators are assigned by business area, not buildings; therefore, most building have multiple FC's coordinating spaces. Knowing your buiness area number (as defined by SIMBA) helps in locating your FC.
