E-Works - Submit a Request

The new E-Works form combines several of our old forms into one convenient form.  If you filled out the Work Order, Maintenance Request, or Moving Request forms in the past, you will now need to fill out the E-Works form; this is for Pocatello, Idaho Falls, and Meridian employees.   

To request COVID-19 safety and ppe supplies, such as gloves, sanitizer, and directional arrows, please fill out the COVID-19 Supplies and Signs form.

The E-Works form does not incorporate Key Requests, NETCOM requests, or the PSR Process, please go to their respective form.

The E-Works interface features include drop down menus, immediate request numbers for easy tracking, automatic emails with status changes to your requests, and the ability to search the status and history of your work requests. Please contact us with comments or questions at or (208) 282-4086.  Thank you for your patience while we work out the bugs in this new system.
