Starting Tuesday, June 21, 2022
Workday worktags will replace Oracle PTAOs for billable services

What your organization needs to do to prepare for this change

  • For new requests:
    • If you currently submit a PTAO when you request a service, you will now need to submit your department's worktags to request a service.
  • For existing services:
    • Facilities Management will use the official mapping file to convert your old PTAO to its newly associated FDM worktags.

Submitting a service request with worktags

To submit a service request with billing information you will be prompted to enter multiple worktags. Some of these are required, some are optional and some are automatically populated for you based on the information provided.

Your department's fiscal administrator is the best contact to determine the specific worktags you will need to use.
