Facilities Announces FY21 Shop Rates

(July 7, 2020) – The UTSA Facilities reimbursable shop rates for fiscal year 2021 will be effective September 1, 2020. The shop rates reimburse Facilities for the cost of providing Premium Services, previously called Departmental Services. Premium Services are those for which Facilities does not receive a budget allocation and must be funded by the requesting department. Examples of Premium Services include, but are not limited to, vehicle maintenance, event and moving support, services provided to Auxiliary units, and minor office renovations.

Facilities shop rates are based on the actual average pay and benefits of the Facilities employees performing the work. Work performed by Facilities is typically done during regular business hours. However, work performed during non-routine hours to accommodate the customer’s requirements or respond to an emergency is billed at one and a half times the regular shop rate. Rates include the cost of labor, fringe benefits, and a $2.00 per hour incidental charge for consumable supplies.

The university contracts its custodial and grounds maintenance services with ABM. The ABM shop rates are negotiated and documented in the annual custodial and grounds maintenance services contract.

Services FY21 hourly rate
Maintenance and Operations $39.00
Quality Assurance $34.00
