Paint Shop

Interior painting services under $25,000 can also be coordinated by building facility managers using painting vendors approved by Purchasing. Interior painting projects over $25,000 and exterior paint jobs are considered projects and will be delivered by Facilities Management Project Services. 

The following tips are designed to assist department personnel in coordinating interior painting services:

  1. Call any vendor on the approved list. You may contact just one vendor or more if you prefer in order to get comparative quotes.
  2. The paint vendor will make an appointment to visit the space and inquire about your timeframe.
  3. Be prepared to address questions such as:
    1. What type of finish do you want? (matte, glossy, flat, etc.)
    2. How large is the area?
    3. Would you like the doors painted, one or both sides?
    4. Do you want all the same color or do you want an accent wall?
    5. Is there furniture to move? Many painters will move regular-sized furniture to the middle of the room and cover it at no charge.
    6. Are there items on the walls (pictures, shelving, etc.) that need to be removed?
      1. Do you want the painter to do this?
      2. If so, will they charge a fee? Many will move regular-sized items at no charge.
      3. Are these items fragile and thus require special storage?
      4. Will there be any wall repair needed before the painting is done? If needed, the vendor should include the cost in their quote.
    7. What is the timeframe when you need this work completed?
      1. Can it be done during normal working hours?
      2. If after normal working hours or over the weekend, expect to pay a premium upcharge.
      3. How will the vendor gain access to the space? An employee may need to be on site to unlock/relock the building.
    8. Do they need help identifying where to park?
      1. Transportation & Distribution Services can assist if needed.
      2. Many vendors already have a vendor permit.
      3. They can also purchase a day pass from the kiosk.
  4. The paint vendor will send you a written quote via email.
  5. Complete a KFS requisition, including the vendor's quote. Wait until an approved PO is generated from Procurement.
  6. Procurement staff will contact you if there are any issues. Once the PO is approved, call the paint vendor and schedule the job.
  7. Per the practice of your building, notify adjacent offices/floors to anticipate painting in their area. Although our approved painters use South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) complaint low-VOC materials (e.g., paints, sealants, etc.), some employees may have sensitivities. Provide your contact information on the notification so occupants with particular concerns can reach you. You may need to schedule work after hours.
  8. Painters should not leave extra paint behind and should dispose of all excess paint.
  9. Upon job completion, if the painters leave a mess or don't meet your needs, notify Procurement of you concerns and they will address them with the vendor.
