Key Request and Return Procedures

Key control is an important part of TMCC building security. It is imperative that each individual that is entrusted with keys understands the significance and importance of positive key control.

It is each individual's responsibility to ensure that all TMCC keys remain in their sole possession and are not loaned or given to another individual. Keys Are Not Transferable. Additionally, no key shall be reproduced (copied) by anyone other than the TMCC Facilities Operations and Capital Planning Department.

Keys are issued by the Director of Facilities Operations and Capital Planning or designee only upon written authorization of a Division Director or Department Chair. Keys must be picked up at the Facilities Department when ready. The person to whom the key is issued must accept sole responsibility for the key. The person who provides written authorization for the issuance of the key is responsible to see that the key is returned to Human Resources when the key is no longer needed or employment ends. Facilities Operations and Capital Planning shall keep a written key record for each individual.

The Key Request form is available online, or can be obtained from the Facilities Operations and Capital Planning office by calling or stopping by.
