How Does a Capital Project Receive Approval?
The process for a capital project to receive approval is determined by:
- The size of the project
- The type of project
- The funding source(s) for the project
The following University Committees are involved in the capital project approval process:
- FEB - Faculty Executive Boards
Review and recommend new faculty specific capital projects to ECSG.
- CCAG - Corporate Capital Sub Group
Reviewing and recommending new capital projects to ECSG which are not faculty specific.
- ECSG - Estates Capital Sub-Group
Consider the cases already seen by FEB or CCAG in significant detail. May require amendments or clarifications before recommending the project to UEB.
- UEB - University Executive Board
Consider cases recommended by ECSG. UEB may accept or reject ECSG recommendations. Depending on the size of the project and the source of funding further approval may be required from Finance Committee and Council.
- Finance Committee – more details
Depending on the size of the project and the source of funding Finance Committee may need to consider the cases approved by UEB. Finance Committee approval is then referred to Council for authorisation.
