Key Audit Increases Safety for Campus

Facilities/Construction Management is getting the campus ready for the full return.

Facilities/Construction Management Key Access Services is primarily responsible for the distribution of  University issued keys. Although this might appear to be a simple task, it is extremely detailed and more complex than many people realize. The KAS Office actively resolves customers’ specific lock and key issues throughout campus. Annually, Key Access Services facilitates the Key Audit. This review has been led by Program Manager Canon Wineriter who began in the office in January 2021 and is additionally supported by Program Coordinator Ana Sanchez.  

The purpose of the key audit is to make sure every department accounts for each key that has been issued. This is extremely important because it enforces campus safety and assures that each person possesses each key assigned to them. The Key Audit accounts for missing keys, which identifies potential safety and security risks. It enforces key accountability, which is one part of the overall University safety and security measures. 

Due to the overwhelming response and updates, the dates for the Key Audit has been extended. It was originally scheduled from April 15, 2021 – May 28, 2021. It is now extended to conclude on June 11, 2021. This extension allows departments more time to coordinate and be fully safe and prepared for the return of everyone in August. Department Key Auditors and Department Administrators have been valuable partners who have assisted extensively with this process. F/CM is very appreciative of their efforts. 

KAS is definitely helping to build futures and maintain excellence.
