Operations Support & Supply Services

The primary goal of Operations Support & Supply Services (formerly Work Control) is to provide Penn State students, faculty, and staff with functioning facilities with minimal interruptions due to maintenance, renovations, and repairs. Operations Support & Supply Services (OS3) 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.
