Security Controls for External Door Access Rule

 Executive Leadership Team03-05-2018

1. Supervisors are responsible to request via School Dude the appropriate office and external building keys for new, full-time employees. External building keys to the Patterson Building are restricted to the President, Executive Leadership Team, designated Information Technology personnel, and designated facilities personnel.

2. Employees who were not issued an external door key or a grant master key upon hire may need access to buildings or areas requiring such keys.

a. For short term use of an external key or grant master key for buildings:

    i. The employee requests in writing to his/her direct supervisor and respective Associate Vice President (AVP) or Dean. Upon approval, the AVP submits a request via School Dude which will require approval of Security and the Vice President (VP) of that area.

   ii. For all buildings except the Patterson Building: After obtaining all approvals, the Coordinator of Facility Services issues the key to the employee. The requesting employee should return the key on to the next business day after the approved use of the key.

  iii. For the Patterson Building: After obtaining all approvals, the Coordinator of Facility Services shares the lockbox security code with the employee. The requesting employee must verify that the door is locked after leaving the building and return the key to the lockbox before leaving campus.

  iv. The VP of the area will be ultimately responsible for the return of the key (s). The Coordinator of Facility Services is responsible for changing the Patterson Building lockbox security code after each use by employees.

b. To gain emergency, after-hours entry to a building, the employee must gain approval from his/her direct supervisor and respective AVP or Dean. Employees are not issued keys in this case. The AVP or Dean will obtain approval from a member of ELT and then notify Security (either full-time college personnel or part-time local law enforcement personnel on contract to the College) to unlock the area and to verify the doors are locked after the employee leaves campus.

3. Violations of this rule may result in the revocation of privileges to access keys under this Rule and/or the application of the Progressive Disciplinary Policy.
