Watch: Shining a Spotlight on Staff – I am Cal OES Video Series – Matthew Bonnici

“I’m proud of my job because of the important projects I have seen to completion,” Bonnici said. “I know the Facilities Unit is integral to the success of the agency by making sure all personnel are comfortable in their working environment.”

Some of the services facilities conducts include contract management, space requests, tenant improvements, space planning and modular systems furniture modifications.
