Effective immediately, the way you reserve conference rooms and make facilities requests at NASA Headquarters has changed. Previously, the NASA HQ Facilities Help Desk System (FHDS) application handled both conference room scheduling and facilities/trouble call requests. FHDS has been replaced with two separate, newly improved processes:
Facilities Help Desk: For facilities requests and trouble call requests (i.e., building alterations, space planning, janitorial services, move services, building deficiencies, outages, etc.), simply send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 358-HELP. No approvals needed. See the Facilities Help Desk Web page for tips on submitting requests and what to expect afterwards.
Headquarters Conference Scheduling System (HQCSS): To request conference room scheduling and support, use HQCSS.
