Stanford University has several areas within departments which, based on the nature of their work, are service centers. The two categories of service centers are Academic and Administrative; the appropriate functional coding follows.

1. Academic Service Centers

Service Centers are officially recognized groups charging users for specific services. Depending upon its main users, academic service center space will usually be coded to OR, DR, AHN, or DA. To determine the appropriate Function Code(s) and percentage of use, perform the following steps:

  1. Identify the room(s) where the service center activity occurs.
  2. Functional coding - use existing coding prior prior space inventory.  If it is a new service center, code to Function Code "A".
  3. An Analysis of the service center's revenues should be performed.  The percentage of revenues by activity (e.g. OR, DR, AHN), of the total revenues will determine the percentage of use by Function Code for the space occupied.  Revenue Analysis is now assisted by CMA after the year-end close and coding updated later.
  4. Copy centers will be coded to Function Code "A".
