FY 2022 Annual Space Survey

Nov 22, 2022 | News

Space Analysis is the official steward of U-M space and location data. The department oversees an annual inventory of all university-owned and occupied space and makes location, square footage, and occupancy updates as they occur throughout the year.

The FY 2022 Annual Space Survey began in February and was completed in early October. The survey includes the Ann Arbor, Dearborn, and Flint campuses, as well as Michigan Medicine and some off-site locations such as summer camps. Over 750 U-M departments reported changes and updates occurring in their space, including use, activities, capacity, and ongoing or completed renovations in 1,160 buildings, approximately 27.5 million assigned square feet, and 123,520 rooms.

Using data from the annual survey, Space Analysis publishes the “Analysis of Facility and Space Data” book each year. It was distributed to U-M recipients in late November. If you would like to be added to the distribution list, please contact [email protected].

A number of departments rely on data from the Annual Space Survey. The Cost Reimbursement Office uses the data to prepare the Facilities & Administrative (F&A) Cost Rate Proposal and negotiate with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) indirect cost rates for research, instruction, and other sponsored activities. The space data is used to accurately allocate facilities costs to the benefiting functions, which is a significant factor in building a proposal that U-M submits to the government to negotiate indirect cost rates.

In FY 2022, actual indirect cost recovery dollars totaled $333,541,644. In addition, space data is also used for U-M space utilization planning, Facilities & Operations, as well as state and federal reporting.

If you have questions about the Annual Space Survey or the data available to support departmental space planning needs, please contact [email protected] (campus) or [email protected] (Michigan Medicine).
