Exceptional need must exist for this approval. Requests to remove locks from master key system must be signed by Vice-Chancellor for Administration.
- 6. To replace lost or stolen keys, the above procedures are required and the key requisition is to state it is a replacement request. If re-keying is needed to obtain security, the department responsible for the keys will pay for this change.
Building Systems Control (BSC) will keep a master building key to all buildings on file. The keys will be audited annually (in July) to verify all keys are present.
All keys should be returned to Key Room (in the Cogeneration Plant building) when the need no longer exists for them and must be returned when the holder terminates association with the University in order to be properly cleared.
Department heads should carefully consider all requests for keys in order to secure and protect University personnel and property.
