Capital Planning

Capital Planning provides support to university leadership in the capital planning and capital budgeting processes. The capital planning process ensures the development and coordination of the annual capital budget and multi-year capital plan and individual capital projects aligns with goals of the university’s strategic master plan and supports the capital planning process for evaluating and improving the university’s built environment and strategic goals.

Capital Planning provides planning and programming studies, and assists departments in developing good projects. We also support all necessary approval actions, both internally and in conjunction with the State of Idaho policies and procedures; assist in development of project scope for renovation and new construction projects. The goal of capital planning is to provide these services through collaborative, comprehensive, and efficient analysis resulting in a clear scope, budget and schedule to be implemented by Architectural and Engineering Services.

Capital Planning staff provides support to the Facilities Planning Council (FPC), the decision-making committee comprised of executive leadership.

Space Management

Space Management is responsible for the management of almost 5.4 million gross square feet of university space, maintaining the Official Building list, and performing analyses of current and future space needs for Boise State University. Space Management staff maintains the Physical Facilities Inventory (PFI), the main tool which helps efficiently identify, allocate, assign, manage and maintain campus resources.

The work of Space Management provides the analysis of existing and proposed space requirements that form the foundation and support for specific capital programming and plans. Space Management provides programming studies, benchmarking of space, space utilization reports; space needs assessments for departmental use and annual reports for budget decisions that are crucial to the day-to-day operation and growth of Boise State University.

Space Management also supports the Space Assignment Advisory Committee (SAAC), a working committee of the Facilities Planning Council to address university space issues.
