All capital requests must be submitted in one of the following four categories. The submission of requests in these categories will allow the University to more effectively allocate resources and will prevent competition for capital among dissimilar items. An outline of the four capital categories follows with a brief description of what is included in that specific category.
Maintenance / Infrastructure
This includes major building systems work including, but not limited to, HVAC, sprinklers, fire alarm, water/sewer, and roofs. All requests made in this area must be reviewed with the Chief Facilities Officer or his designee.
This includes building projects such as renovations, restorations, and new construction. All systems work related specifically to the work area should be included in this request independent of any infrastructure work. All related project costs should also be included so that the request represents a total project cost. All requests in this area must be reviewed with the Chief Facilities Officer or his designee.
Information Technology (IT)
This includes all computer equipment, infrastructure and costs to install. In addition all computer replacements, laptops, printers, scanners, copiers and related office equipment should be included in this request. All requests in this area must be reviewed with the Chief Technology Officer or his designee.
Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment (FF&E)
This request includes all furniture, fixtures and equipment not specifically included in a building project or IT request. These requests are generally initiated at the department level and must be reviewed by the Dean's or Vice President's Office in the respective area that the request is being made.
