Welcome to Space Management

2014 Space Utilization Survey is due May 2, 2014.

The Department of Space Management is responsible for auditing and inventorying all university space, including:

  • Identification of individual room usage, occupants, and the overall utilization of university space
  • Conducting an annual Space Utilization Survey that requires on-sight verification
  • Reviewing and ensuring the accuracy of floor plans for all university owned buildings

At USC, an annual space survey is performed.  This survey is the mechanism used to collect and verify current room numbers, room types, room assignment, name of occupants, the space activity codes (SAC) for each room, and the assignable net square footage. The information gathered from USC's annual space survey is utilized as follows:

  • To provide space documentation required for federal indirect cost reimbursement.
  • To collect and update data related to space utilization at the university.
  • To submit data to the Office of Budget and Planning to be used in the allocation of space related costs associated with the upcoming university budget cycle.

 


 

Beginning in 2009, we began offering a more convenient method for delivery and return of the space survey.  You will receive an email for the annual Space Survey which will includes two attachments:

  • The current year's Space Survey letter and SAC code definitions
  • An EXCEL spreadsheet* of space in your area (to be updated and returned)
    Please be sure to save the emailed spreadsheet(s) to your computer, before opening in EXCEL...

For 2014, the annual space survey is due no later than May 2, 2014.  After your survey has been completed and returned, we will contact you to set up a time for the walk-through.
