Submitting Capital Budget Requests

Yearly capital budgeting is essential for planning long-term capital improvements.  Long-term planning identifies financial resources and manpower requirements in a logical and coordinated fashion. Before beginning the Capital Request Form, each area should review the Capital Budget Policy, which contains requirements that must be met before a project can be included on the request form.

Capital requests include physical assets or technology over $5,000 that has a useful life of greater than one year, including:  new buildings; building improvements; system infrastructures (such as security, fire prevention, utilities); new and replacement machinery and equipment; major upgrades or repairs; technology; and vehicles.

Divisions are contacted in the early fall by the AVP for Facilities and/or Information Technology in order to discuss upcoming capital needs and a single capital budget is compiled.
