Work Control

The Work Control division’s primary goal is to provide Penn State students, faculty and staff with functioning facilities with minimal interruptions due to maintenance, renovations and repairs. The WCD is comprised of four departments:  Work Reception Center, Planning & Scheduling, OPP Supply Chain, and Facility Asset Management Programs.  We are responsible for receiving customer service requests, dispatching emergency issues, planning preventive and proactive work, procuring the goods and services needed, and managing the business systems and data that enable and support these activities.
