Subject: [DCHAS-L] Fume Hood Maintenance & Repair
To  all who are in  Academic Research-

In this tight economy, universities are finding ways to recoup expenses.

 How many of you have a Facilities department that supports & services 
fume hoods as part of the general infrastructure of the laboratory?  
Meaning, they will service water supply, HVAC, sewer, electricity, etc. 
and consider fume hoods part of the ventilation system.


Do any of you have a system in place where Facilities charges individual 
departments for their Time &  Materials, specifically for fume hoods?
