Space Survey Update-  WebSpace has officially launched as of 4/20/2023 and is ready for you to get started!! Here is some helpful information for you:

  1. Link to WebSpace:
    1. Login in: WSU email address
    2. Password: Your WSU OKTA password
  2. Resources and Tools on WebSpace:
    1. Recordings from both sessions have been uploaded to the home page
    2. Training documents are uploaded under Help
    3. There is a template under Management tab that can be used to request input from faculty. The form allows the PIs or faculty to account for one room at at time. This is a great way to start gathering occupancy information from PIs while the coordinators start with the space inventory. (Sample is attached)

    1. This will be the fastest way to receive a response to your questions!
    2. As needed, we will coordinate with Maximus and WSU Space Management to respond to your inquiries.
    3. If a lot of you are asking the same question, I will send the question and response to the whole group in case it benefits all of you.

Reminder-   Efforts MUST be certified within 60 days after the effort certification process is initiated as late certification is a compliance issue that could lead to loss of funding.

Effort remaining uncertified 60 days after the effort certification process is initiated for any period may be subject to administrative review and result SPS inactivating the relevant grant worktag(s) to preclude further expenses from being charged to the affected projects until all effort is certified.
