The Capital Improvement Program

Body

Introduction

UT System’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a six-year projection of major new construction and repair and rehabilitation projects to be implemented and funded from institution and Systemwide revenue sources.  It is a current reflection of the institutions’ continuous strategic planning efforts and is subject to modification at any Board of Regents’ meeting.  Candidate projects are routinely added to the CIP and their statuses are regularly updated to reflect the most current funding, cost, scope, and schedule information.

Major Capital Projects are defined in the Regents’ Rules and Regulations Rule 80301: Capital Improvement Program as any project that meets one or more of the following criteria:

  • New building construction with a total project cost of $10 million or more
  • Road, paving, and repair and rehabilitation projects with a total project cost of $10 million or more
  • Any project determined by the Board to be architecturally or historically significant

Detailed information on the current Capital Improvement Program can be found on the Office of Facilities Planning and Construction Web Site.
