How do I obtain an parking gate-card?

Security and Parking are critical issues at any campus. Access to secured parking areas is only available for full-time employees.

** EFFECTIVE Fall Term 2015-1**

Please be advised that the Kendall Campus has upgraded and installed new gate-card readers, to replace the old "Royce Card System" in secured gated employee parking lots. In order to access these lots, now you will need to use to MDCard (employee ID); employees with the "FOB/Access Card" must use that card.

Please be advised that employees caught sharing their parking gate-card with family members may be subject to disciplinary action, including termination of parking gate-card privileges.

Exceptions for adjunct faculty require a written request, via e-mail (including the full name, the Empl ID#, and justification), from the Department Chair/Head to the Senior Director of Campus Administration, but this does not guarantee approval. All requests will be evaluated on an individual basis.

Problems accessing the secured parking gated areas should be directed to the Office of the Senior Director of Campus Administration in Room 8215. Lost or damaged MDCards may be replaced with the Student Life Department in Room 101.


Agreements for Services - Important Information

Effective April 1, 2016, an "amount only" requisition must be created in MDConnect for ALL agreement for services. Also remember that according to Policy VI-30 and Procedure 6300, the College is not allowed to engage in agreement for services with current/active full-time or part-time employees of the College. Please use the "Agreement for Services Checklist" to make sure that you comply with all requirements when processing an agreement; you can find the checklist here.

Under no circumstances may a College employee execute or approve a contract or agreement with a member of his/her family. Failure to comply with this guideline may result in immediate disciplinary action including termination of employment.
