Frequently Asked Questions

A Work  Request can be submitted in one of the following ways:

The terms Work Order and Work Request are often used interchangeably.  

The Work Request will be received by the Work Management Center (WMC). The WMC will review the request and assign it to the appropriate shop. After a Work Request is assigned, it becomes a Work  Order.

Each Work  Order has a work order number. Customers will receive the work order number via email. Use this number to reference the work order and check the status.

You can search the status of your Work Request  by entering your work order number that you received via email. Or you can call the Work Management Center at (404) 727-7463 or cscsc@emory.edu. 

A Work Order may or may not be charged (or billable). This will depend on the specific work being requested and the school or unit. Please contact Work Management Center for your specific work order at (404) 727-7463 or cscsc@emory.edu. 

Based on the priority levels (see “What are Priority Levels”) a Work  Request may take between 30 minutes to three (3) days to be responded to. After the initial response, it may require additional time and work. Please contact Work Management Center for your specific Work  Order timeline at (404) 727-7463 or cscsc@emory.edu. 

Please notify the Work Management Center at (404) 727-7463 or cscsc@emory.edu if you believe you have received the status update but the work is not complete.
