Joe has been in the Lockshop parts warehouse doing lots and lots of cleaning, sorting, and organizing during the Covid-19 shutdown in preparation for our shop moving in a couple months. If he hadn't been spending so much time working in the dust and heat sorting and organizing parts, we would be scrambling at the very end to get things done and organized. BRAVO JOE!

I met Bud at an A&P diversity signature program and he was sharing how he approaches his work and how he interacts with the student dispatchers that work at S2F. Bud is someone who values getting to know the people he works with and putting faces with names. He values the opportunity students get to work at S2F and the important job they have in sharing information to prioritize work that needs to get done or an emergency that needs to be addressed. Understanding that the dispatchers don't always know who they are talking to, Bud goes above and beyond to visit the student dispatchers on their shifts to meet them and he even bakes them a good to welcome them to the job, thank them for all they do, and to even explain how what they do impacts the service they deliver. Bud demonstrates what is it to foster an inclusive environment and that knowing people for who they are can make a huge difference when we feel connected to one another as well as connected to the mission of the job! Way to go above and beyond and thank you for sharing how you try to make the place more inclusive!

I appreciate all the work that she put in to make this happen and cannot thank her enough for the vision she had to create this, because I know many students will find this useful to get them started for many more semesters to come.

Peter and Brett have been key in restructuring our biennial State capital request, particularly the portion of funding the university uses for major renovations. Previously we requested each project individually; each roof, each HVAC system, each elevator renovation, etc. Through Peter's and Brett's efforts, the renovation projects are now holistically analyzed, projects are grouped by similar type, and our capital request seeks a "bucket " of funding for each project type. This improvement has lead to easy bundling of smaller projects into more efficient larger ones and to streamlined access to the State funds through the Controlling Board.

One example of his innovative approach to work was seen in his contributions to the Transportation and Traffic Management Customer Satisfaction Survey Project. Upon facing difficulty in soliciting survey responses, real-time from a difficult to target audience, Mason undertook to create and personally distribute QR codes in order that multiple prospective respondents could complete the survey on their smart phones. Another example of his willingness to accept a challenge, was his readiness to learn the visualization tool, Tableau, and to deliver useful output in order to advance another important project.

As capital planning has evolved over the past many years, Amanda and Dan have been great collaborators in developing a process to track an accurate spend, and the amount yet to be spent, for all projects in the approved capital plan. This "yet to be spent" amount, denoted as Prior Commitment, is reported as a component in each capital plan, giving a clear annual snapshot of total future capital spend. The first few cycles that Prior Commitment was reported, we were hoping no one drilled down too rigorously, because some assumptions had to be made where data was not in readily accessible form. However, thanks to Amanda's and Dan's great work, the Prior Commitment numbers are now readily available and driven by solid data.

I was sitting here going through the most recent work orders for Mendenhall Laboratory, and it just made me think about what a great job Kelton Pettay is doing here in ML. The initiative he takes to fix problems before they even come to my attention is truly astounding. I wouldn’t even know about half the stuff he does if it wasn’t for the work orders that he creates for things as he fixes them. No dig on people who have preceded him, but the work Kelton has done here in his short time so far just really sticks out. In his time here in ML, I think he fits the ideal of what was imagined when this new role of his was created. He combines great customer service, excellent proficiency in many areas, and the aforementioned initiative to address issues as he finds them, not just when they’re assigned to him.

These decals are placed at key intersections to promote traffic safety and most of the time are easy to remove. A handful required additional manual labor, however, after being placed near a construction zone. After Nicole and Brianna were able to remove most of the signage, it was determined a power washer would be needed to finish the job. Ross McClain in FOD EHS worked with Mike Koeritzer in Landscape Services to do just that. Our communications team appreciates our partners across A&P who make things happen behind the scenes.

When the students are out, Bryan makes sure our publications are shipped every day. Last year, out of 3658 orders shipped, only 28 orders were outside our 10 day window allowed. And several of those orders were delayed for reasons outside of Bryan's control. That's .007%! Fantastic! Bryan and his team were essential to the reorganization of the warehouse in early 2018.

Rather than reschedule the outage, causing more potential impact and inconvenience to the customer (OSU Libraries), Mick Sharron and Al Stazzone voluntarily provided the support on site over the weekend.
