Capital Budget Process

​In addition to the daily operations of the university, major capital projects and equipment acquisitions are required periodically to fulfill the mission of the university and the business units that comprise it.  Such requirements are funded through the annual Capital Budget which is approved each year by the Board of Trustees during their June meeting.  The timing of this process and approximate deadlines for budget submissions are detailed in the budget calendar.

The Capital Budget is ultimately approved each year by the Board of Trustees upon the recommendation of the university's Budget Committee.  Prior to the committee's final recommendation, deans and other area managers work with senior administration to arrive at the best allocation of available resources.  

​Capital Budget Requests

All capital budget requests are first directed to the relevant dean or area manager.  The below table summarizes who is responsible for initial screening of all capital budget requests.  This does not necessarily apply, however, to the AUBMC, Faculty of Medicine, School of Nursing, Saab Medical Library or UHS whose budgeting process is administered by the finance team of the Vice President for Medical Affairs.
