SUBJECT: PPM 530-6 - University Key Control
All requests for issuance of keys, any keying change or installation of locks must be submitted directly to Physical Plant Services (PPS). This includes all requests for issuance of new keys or the duplication of existing keys, desk keys, file cabinet keys, repair of door locks, installation of new door locks and auxiliary locks such as deadbolts. PPM 530-6, University Key Control, has been revised to reflect the current policy on key control.
A Key or Lock Request Signature Authorization form (available from PPS Customer Relations) must be on file before any keys can be issued or lock changes made. Only the person designated on the Key or Lock Request Signature Authorization Form is authorized to pick up keys. Any designated/authorized person picking up keys from PPS Customer Relations will require a current campus identification and must sign a receipt before keys will be released. If the work is required to be completed at a site, locksmith employees will perform the work and leave the necessary keys with the designated/authorized person providing a current campus identification and signature indicating receipt of the keys.
Keys will not be sent through campus mail.
Reproduction of University keys by anyone other than the University locksmith is prohibited. It is a misdemeanor crime to duplicate, cause to duplicate, possess or use any key to University buildings without proper authorization. Violators may be prosecuted in accordance with California Penal Code, Section 469.
