I am looking for options to manage the proliferation of sub-sites under our site collections for our Intranet. Right now the creation of site collections is done by IT, but we want the ability to delegate the creation of subsites to the business groups.
Is Site Use Confirmation and Deletion under CA/Application Management/Site Collections the only option? If so, does it only deal with the site collections? The ultimate goal would be to allow site collection owners to create sub-sites, and then retire/delete those sites after a set time without some sort of renewal.
Additional goal is to not use a third party tool.
