Facilities Management & Planning

Capital Projects

The University requires potential capital projects to be developed in a uniform manner that will help senior leadership understand and consider the idea. Capital projects should contribute to fulfilling the goals of the University, including inclusive excellence, innovation, integrity, and engagement. Proposed projects must explicitly include a statement of how the project addresses the needs of our diverse campus community.

If a project is a minor repair, it can be completed by submitting a Work Request.

For all other projects, a project development review process will be staffed by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Business and Finance for the Provost's Office. The first step in the project development process is to fill out the Concept Description section of the Phase I Capital Project Proposal form. If you do not know whether your project requires a work order, or is a capital project, please call Pam Carnahan at x1-2167.

Capital Expenditures and Lead Time


As outlined in a recent memo to Administrative Council, Capital Projects and Expenditures at all levels require adequate lead times to ensure that the proposed project expenditures are aligned with the unit's and University's strategic plan; are aligned with the Campus Framework Plan; are within quality guidelines and available financial resources; can be timely 

The dates listed below are for the timeline necessary for submitting projects that require design and permitting.

  Note:  Projects require time for design and permitting, thus the long lead time necessary for the start of projects.   The above timelines will enable Facilities Management & Planning to plan for summer work load and retain additional contractors to accomplish the work if needed.  Permitting, per the City and County of Denver c an take as long as 13-16 weeks to accomplish projects over the winter break unless it is for small carpet replacements, small painting jobs or for AV upgrades if a lot of additional electrical and/or cabling is not required. 

       *All projects are reviewed and approved by senior leadership who may alleviate a project's timing to meet pressing University needs.
