Requests for projects are made through the Provost’s office and evaluated with Facilities Management and with regards to the institutional objective and potential funding source. Every project is placed into a category at initiation. The actual delivery process of a project varies upon its category, facilitating the most effective delivery and creating consistency in the process. This sets expectations for every project.

As part of the Capital Planning Process (CPP), before detailed project planning begins, significant projects are identified and approved by the Capital Planning Working Group (CPWG). Smaller projects are typically conceived and approved within the Space Committee or Renewal Principals Group.
