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 fhds@hq.nasa.gov 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.
