The university historically charged the cost of space against central resources, reducing the amount of revenue available to distribute to colleges. In RCM, RCU's RCM budgets were increased by the cost of the space they occupied at the implementation of RCM. The cost of space is then charged back to RCUs. In other words, at the start of RCM nothing changed. But, going forward, as an RCU changes the amount of space that is assigned to them their costs will change so the efficient use of space benefits an RCU.
