The Office of Space Management and Planning is preparing for the next annual space survey. Each department’s help is essential to ensure the University of North Texas has an accurate record of space and how it is used. UNT is required by state and federal law to maintain and report this information, as it helps secure federal research reimbursements and is used in determining state funding. Space management leaders are conducting the next survey from March 1-31, 2019.
The space survey will collect data such as:
- Types of rooms;
- Function of rooms;
- Capacity and occupants;
- Accounts that fund sponsored research activities and associated equipment; and
- Chemicals stored and used in these rooms
Each department or unit should have chosen someone to respond to the survey and someone to approve it. These individuals need to know how their department uses each room and how the activities in each room are funded, especially in research-intensive areas. Each department will receive a list of assigned spaces and a description of how that space is classified. The departments must verify the information, descriptions, and classifications room-by-room.
The Space Survey is administered online through the FM Interact Space Management System at https://aits-fmiprod.unt.edu/FMInteract_2018.1.24/Default.aspx
