Call for Facilities Projects
September 14, 2023
We are excited to announce the launch of our annual Call for Projects to the campus community.
This is a critically important aspect of our annual Facilities project planning as we identify institutional priorities with leadership related to the allocation of time and resources for the greatest project needs of Idaho State University. This process commits significant time and energy to yearly project planning, funding proposals, and resource commitments. We invite each of you to work with your respective units to consider and submit project proposals as we plan for projects that will shape the future of ISU.
During phase I of the project prioritization process, units complete a project proposal for proposed projects for the forthcoming fiscal year. Facilities then work with two committees to review proposed projects by project type. The Facilities Sub Committee reviews all betterment projects, and the Facilities Subject Matter Experts review all other project types (maintenance, safety, regulatory, etc.).
Phase I recommended projects are discussed and reviewed by each department's vice president (Academic Affairs will be reviewed with their respective dean and provost). This prioritized list will be reviewed by the VPO (Vice President for Operations) and the Facilities Leadership team and is prepared to present to Leadership Council and Administrative Council for approval of top priority projects moving forward to Phase II, which involves Facilities Services reviewing each project scope, cost, schedules, and feasibility analysis.
The final list of prioritized projects is ultimately used to compile project lists for submission to the Permanent Building Fund Advisory Council (PBFAC) for funding consideration. Campus Operations and Facilities Services now submit the proposed project lists for funding consideration, discussion, and final approval by Administrative Council in May.
