How to get service? Email requests to HSPD12PMOPACSSR@va.gov. What your email must contain in order to receive a response:
- Email subject title that includes the Building address and the words “Repair” or “New Equipment”
- In the email we ask that you include the following:
- Who. Who is the single point of contact for the request as well as both phone & email data for the main POC.
- What. What is the issue you want to be addressed? It is important that the “what” of the request describes in detail what the issue is and what you would like to have occur. The what may be a programing issue of the system e.g. setting doors to new times… please be concise and specific as to what end state result you desire.
- Also required would be a statement as to what the impact would be if the request were not acted upon. This assists in prioritizing the requests.
General response to repair requests should be less than 72 hours.
General response to new equipment should be 30 days or less. It must be understood that some of these changes to infrastructure require coordination with several facility stakeholders and that takes time. Additionally, the contract has a limited amount of money for new equipment so new requests will be prioritized based on available funds.
