Non-Routine Work Order "Handyman" Service (Monthly Schedule)
Non-routine work orders (hanging pictures, moving furniture, accessory installation, etc.) are handled by NorCal installers during scheduled visits.  Generally, each month there are two scheduled visits to the Oakland campus and one scheduled visit each to the Sacramento and San Mateo campuses.  The schedule below is for the 2015 calendar year. 
 
Please make note of the following:

(1)  In order to have your issue addressed by NorCal on the day of a scheduled visit, your work order must be submitted through the BMC System no later than 12:00 PM the day before the scheduled NorCal visit.  For example, the next scheduled visit to the Oakland campus is on January 8th.  If you would like to have a work order addressed on the 8th, you must submit your work order request no later than 12:00 PM on January 7th.

(2)  We will do our best to have all work orders completed on the day of each scheduled visit. Any incomplete work orders will automatically move to the list for the next scheduled visit.

(3) If you have a time-sensitive request that does not align with the monthly schedule or you require extensive work which cannot be completed during a regularly scheduled visit, you have the option of requesting that we schedule an installer solely for you at your own department's expense.
