New Construction, Renovation and Remodeling Projects
Facilities Management must annually develop, obtain Board of Trustees approval and submit to the State, SCF's Five Year Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The CIP details the requirements for large construction projects such as the Medical Technology Simulation Center. The Facilities Planner continuously gathers facility requirements to build this program.
Additionally, the CIP requests money from the State to support small projects in several broad categories. A Miscellaneous Project List approved by the President and Vice Presidents further defines the specific small projects to be accomplished in a fiscal year using approved funds. These typically number 40+ in a given fiscal year. An example would be a new air conditioning system for a building.
