CPM 302: The ABOR Capital Development Process
To introduce the Board of Regents’ capital development process
Arizona Board of Regents Policy Manual - 7–102
Through the capital project request process, all capital projects are identified, prioritized, and considered for funding.
The Arizona Board of Regents’ (ABOR) policies and procedures govern the ABOR capital development process. The board has established policies and procedures for the development of major capital projects with a cost of $5 million or greater for renovation or infrastructure projects or $10 million or greater for new construction or information technology projects. The board has also established policies and procedures for the annual submission of a Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). CIP policies and procedures are supplemented each year by guidelines issued by the board.
The ABOR capital development process for major capital projects consists of six phases:
For a flowchart of the ABOR capital development process, see CPM 302A.
All major capital projects must be specifically identified (e.g., nature, requirements, character, etc.). Project justifications will be consistent with university strategic and capital planning and will address how the project relates to specific ASU strategic objectives. ASU’s mission and scope statement is the source document for determining these objectives.
Generally, all major renovation, maintenance, rehabilitation, infrastructure, and new construction projects estimated to cost $5 million or more, regardless of the source of funds, shall be brought to the board for approval. Projects with budgets originally estimated to be less than $5 million that expand to $5 million or more must follow the regents’ process.
For information on the Arizona Board of Regents’ capital process, and further descriptions of each phase, including authority granted by approval, see CPM 201, “ABOR Building Construction, Remodeling, and Renovation.”
