Historical Note:

The University of Missouri (UM-System) administrative unit responsible for maintenance and improvement of campus facilities has experienced a number of name changes and administrative reorganizations during its history. Under its original title of Buildings and Grounds, this unit was primarily concerned with maintenance and repair of contemporary campus structures along with the landscaping and general care of campus grounds. In the early 1900's, the Buildings and Grounds Unit's title was changed to Physical Plant Unit. This change reflected the increasing complexity of maintaining physical services (such as lighting, heating, and plumbing) for the rapidly growing University. In 1964, with the creation of a four-campus University of Missouri System, the Physical Plant Unit was combined with University of Missouri Construction (which had existed as a separate unit since 1956) to form the UM Physical Plant and Construction Department. Also at this time, each of the four UM-System campuses appointed individual Superintendents of Facilities.

1980 saw UM-System Physical Plant and Construction Department become the Office of Facilities Management and Planning. Under this title, the office was responsible for all aspects of design, planning, and construction of new facilities on all four of the UM-System campuses. An additional name change occurred in 1987 when the Office's name became Facilities Management Services. Also in 1987, responsibility for oversight of actual construction work was delegated to the Physical Plant Superintendents of individual System campuses. Duties of the Office of Facilities Management Services still included coordination of UM-System Board of Curators recommendations for new construction and repairs to existing facilities, coordination of the selection of architectural firms for UM-System building projects, implementation of uniform UM-System building safety codes, coordination of capital appropriations requests, review and evaluation of construction contracts requiring Board of Curators approval, development of unified data base systems for all UM campuses, and providing assistance to campus staff in resolving construction-related disputes. A final name change came in 1989 when the Office of Facilities Management Services became the current Office of Facilities Planning and Development.
