The Facilities Section at the department is an in-house support function that is responsible for the maintenance and improvement of all department owned and leased facilities throughout the state. This includes a maintenance unit, design and construction, and the coordination of leases, utilities and building services.
During FY2016, Facilities welcomed the implementation of the Arizona Department of Administration’s “TRIRIGA Work Order System”. This system allows the department to efficiently perform demand and preventive maintenance on its facilities, as well as make long-term plans regarding maintenance and budget issues.
For demand maintenance, the system is used to process and track maintenance work orders for individual buildings. This allows department personnel to closely monitor the cost of building maintenance throughout the state. The anticipated savings to the department is about $20,000.
