Each major organizational department identifies a Property Representative, and in some cases a Property Coordinator. For a list of these contacts, click here. For more information about Representatives and Coordinators, read on.

Property Representatives

The Property Representative usually has collateral responsibilities—in other words, Property Representatives wear more than one hat. For the most part, they report to the Division Business Manager; they do not report to the Laboratory Property Manager, nor is there any line-management responsibility or accountability that flows from the Property Manager to a department. Each department is autonomous when it comes to directing the day-to-day work of its Property Representative. However, each Property Representative should have, within reason, the same base level of knowledge and skill to successfully execute assigned responsibilities.

In general, Property Representatives are responsible for executing and coordinating several specifically defined decentralized Property Management activities and act to promote department compliance with property procedures. Property Representatives are responsible for ensuring that division property records are accurate and current as reflected in the Asset Management System (Sunflower).

Property Coordinators

Property Coordinators may be appointed by departments to assist their Property Representatives in the administrative details of property management. Property Representatives and Coordinators work together to execute department Property Management responsibilities.
