Capital Budget

The University Capital Budget Process is used to identify, assess, and plan for the capital needs of the institution and fully supports the overall objectives and goals of the Five-Year Financial Plan.  This process provides a basis for determining alternative sources of funding, a framework for assessing the impact of new capital expenditures on the operating budget, as well as providing a system for accounting for the capital resources of the institution.

The Budget and Financial Planning Office has a variety of responsibilities related to capital budgeting including:

  • Coordination and review of the university capital and debt plan as part of the university's five-year rolling financial plan for capital activity.
  • Oversight and review of project funding and use of debt financing for all capital projects.
  • Coordination of the capital funding and priorities with the Capital Allocation Committee (CAC), which reviews and approves all capital projects with a project budget of $200,000 or greater.
  • The University’s primary tool for managing Capital budgets is Rubix. If you are a Capital budgeter for your department and do not know how to access the system please contact your capital budget analyst.
