Contacting Facilities Management About Buildings

Postby ASpaugh » Wed Feb 24, 2016 7:49 am

Our Stake boundaries were recently changed and a new Stake created. However, one of the buildings in our Stake was moved to the new Stake and for some reason our Stake still has control over it. I've been in contact with two High Councilman over facilities to get this changed, but none of us know the appropriate person/office to contact. I'm assuming it's someone in Salt Lake? If anyone could guide me in the right direction I would be very appreciative. Thank you!

You say you "still have control of it?" Is this in the calendar system?
Contact your stake FM Group to start...

The calendar help says:
Buildings are automatically added to the Calendar Program within 30 days after a Stake is created, realigned, or when a new building is put into use. If the correct Locations have not appeared after 30 days, (or to speed up the process) contact the Facilities Management Group.

Yes, it's in the calendar system and the changes happened months ago. How do I find my facilities management group contact information?

One of the high councilors is designated as the Physical Facilities Representative (PFR). He is your stake's main contact with the FM group.

If your stake has entered callings and assignments properly, you can go to the Directory on LDS.org, then choose "Stake Information" from the ward selector on the left, then choose "Stake Leaders and Organizations", then "Other Callings". The "Stake Physical Facilities Representative" would then be listed on the right.

I've already contacted him. He has no idea how to contact the FM Group.

That's almost inconceivable (in a Princess Bride kind of way). The stake must have contact with the FM Group, and the PFR should be the primary contact. But if the PFR doesn't know, then I would think that the stake president or one of his counselors knows. Or perhaps the stake clerk. In any case, the stake clerk or stake executive secretary could look in CDOL to see the associated organizations for the stake, and the FM group with its contact information should be listed there.

That is seriously dysfunctional. I can only hope he knows them by a different name.

I'm sure they know! The FM group is the entity that maintains all your stake buildings: insures you have cleaning supplies, buys your major equipment and building furniture, schedules repairs, arranges to have the snow plowed in the parking lot and the lawns mowed! Who is THAT person? They are the FM group!

[update: its the guy/gal you call when the AC stops working in the summer! Oh yea! Everyone knows THAT person...]

Personally, I don't think it's too unusual that a Physical Facilities Representative doesn't know who to contact – especially if he was called recently or if he's never had a reason to contact them. Contact information for the FM group really should be listed in Leader and Clerk Resources or somewhere similarly accessible.
