About the Facilities Activity Hub

Supporting blended facilities reporting and analysis, the Facilities Activity Hub (FacAH) is a central repository for UC San Diego enterprise system data as it relates to all facilities activity across relevant systems.

This hub contains data from current and future facilities systems, including space, personnel assignments and department allocation information. Allocation pattern analysis, space planning and forecast reporting, multi-department analysis and person assigned spaces data is available using the Cognos and Tableau visualization tools. Blending the facilities data from FacAH with other Activity Hubs is supported in Cognos.
