Fact Sheet

Capital Budget: this process is separate from the operating budget process and occurs once per year in June for the following fiscal year. For example, we will submit in June 2017 the capital budget request for July 2018-June 2019. These requests are then subject to a recommendation/approval process by TBR, THEC, Governor’s Office, and finally SBC. This budget provides the campus with state funds for projects.

Our campus submits one capital budget request per fiscal year.  These budget requests contain both Capital Maintenance and Capital Outlay.

Capital Maintenance –requested as part of the capital budget process. The amount of the request(s) is capped by TBR.

Definition -Major non-routine repairs and replacements for E&G space unrelated to new construction, for:

  • Repair to restore a facility or infrastructure to its former, better state without a change in use.
  • Replacement of exhausted or damaged utility systems, roofs, exterior fencing and lighting, infrastructure, and paving.
  • Removal of hazards such as asbestos encapsulation or abatement.
  • Alteration of safety or accessibility features, to rectify code deficiencies.
  • Modernization or Update of obsolete building systems, for continuation of educational program.
  • Corrections to bring buildings or systems into compliance with newer codes or standards.

Capital Outlay - requested as part of the capital budget process. These request(s) require a 2-10% match from the institution.

Definition: New buildings or structures, utility and/or service systems, land acquisition, site improvements, appurtenances, or permanent betterments which materially extends the useful life and improves or changes the functional use of a facility, normally meeting one or more of the following criteria:

  • Renovation, restoration, and/or replacements, which result in a change in use, with the end product qualifying as E&G space for the PFI.
  • New Facility or Addition to Existing Facility, which creates new E&G square footage.
