The Supply Chain Department consists of twelve personnel, three
foremen, two supervisors and a management trainee. It is organized
into four divisions to facilitate the flow of materials, equipment
and mail to the Maintenance Department and PHA offices.
- The Inventory Department is located at the
Bartram Avenue Supply Facility in South Philadelphia. It receives
stores and issues large building trades materials and items that
are critical for emergency repairs.
- The Scattered Sites Cross-Dock is co-located
at the Bartram facility and combines materials ordered from the
Inventory Department with the "high velocity" repair items ordered
from regional suppliers for specific Scattered Sites maintenance
and repair projects. The combined items are then distributed to the
work sites on a daily basis.
- The Small Equipment Department comprises two
teams that receive, store, maintain, repair and issue the inventory
of tools, machines, specialized motor vehicles, generators and
seasonal vehicle accessories used by the Maintenance
- The Distribution Team consists of five PHA
employees that deliver or transfer supplies to and from all of
PHA's Maintenance sites and pick-up, sort, post, deliver and/or
expedite all postal and intra-office mail received by, or sent
from, PHA offices.
The Property Accountability Team is comprised
of three personnel that track the full life-cycle of PHA
property-accountable assets valued over $499.99. Using
state-of-the-art electronic bar-code readers, they scan the
bar-coded assets throughout PHA on a scheduled cycle and maintain a
database which tracks the receipts, assignments, transfers,
retiring and disposal of PHA's office and industrial assets.
The Commercial Facilities Services Department
performs two key functions in support of PHA's administrative
offices and community centers:
- The Janitorial Group is comprised of eight Janitors and two
Janitorial Foremen that maintain the cleanliness and appearance of
eight large office buildings and community centers throughout
Philadelphia. Through close work with the Supply Chain
Department, the group also manages the ordering, storage and
replenishment of all janitorial and public hygiene supplies that
are used at the eight facilities.
- The Facilities Support Team fulfills the supply requests
submitted by the Janitorial Group and coordinates contracted or
"in-house" preventive maintenance, repairs and emergency support
(including snow removal and landscaping) via PHA vendors, the
Maintenance Department and the Advanced Facilities Management
