UVM's Space Survey is jointly administered by Financial & Cost Accounting Services and Planning, Design & Construction.

Every UVM department must complete the annual Space Survey to update information on:

  1. Space assignment, room type, and room occupants
  2. Functional activities and funding sources of rooms

Data collected through this survey are key factors for assessing facilities and space costs for the University’s Incentive-based Budgeting (IBB) model, and providing important information for the University’s F&A (indirect costs), income/expense rates, program costing, and space management and planning.

FY24 Space Survey

The University’s FY24 space survey will be starting on April 9, 2024 with a completion deadline of June 28, 2024. The University’s new PlanOn Integrated Work Management System will be used by department surveyors to view and update room and occupancy information on the space survey form. Participants can register for one of the training sessions by going to Peoplesoft and searching for course number CPT025.

The space survey process has been migrated to our new integrated workplace management system from FAMIS to PlanOn

Please note that space changes resulting from new construction and approved space transfers between colleges occuring during FY23 and through October 1, 2023 (FY24) were captured and reflected in the ASF inventory report used for IBB purposes.
