State Funded Projects Process

  • All State Funded Projects begin with the Capital Plan Process
  • After approval by the Board of Trustees, a Project Request Form is submitted to the Office of Capital Planning and the project proceeds into the planning phase.
  • Once the Project Planning Process has been completed, the project is sent to the Office of Design & Construction where a Project Manager is assigned the project.
  • The project manager selects an architectural / engineering firm for project.
  • Project manager requests release of funds for architectural / engineering fees and reimbursable expenses.
  • The project manager develops a project budget for inclusion in the Controlling Board Request for Release of Funds form prepared by the Office of Capital Planning.
  • The Office of Capital Planning creates a Controlling Board Request for Release of Funds for architectural / engineering fees. The release of funds will be either approved through Director's sign off or go before the Controlling Board approval process. Director's sign off is eligible for those projects that have been approved as line items. Controlling board approval is required for all projects that have not been identified as specific line items.
