Frequently Asked Questions

What is the primary purpose of the space database?

A space database is a critical tool for keeping track of the amount of space used by each department for grant
and funding applications, research space utilization analysis, and indirect cost recovery. It is equally
critical for planning purposes as departments’ needs for space changed over the years.

How is the space database maintained?

As changes occur in a department’s use, location, or amount of space, the Department Head is responsible
for reporting the changes to the Space Management, Capital Strategy, and Planning.
