Capital Project Planning Process

Are you planning an office, lab or classroom remodel, building addition, specialized equipment installation, building utilities change, landscape or exterior site work?  Will the work require modifying the space size or layout, multiple contractors, public bidding, engineering, design or project management, change of space use, code review, permitting or other regulatory oversight?  Michigan Tech's processes for project requests are outlined below:

Minor Projects (Under $50K)

For projects under $50,000 that will be requested, funded, and completed in the same fiscal year, please complete the Minor Project Request Form, and send it to facilities@mtu.edu Funds for these projects should be available or expected within the current fiscal year.


Capital Projects (Over $50K)

To optimize the ability to predict and plan for future capital projects, the University is requiring the financial impacts of proposed projects be known prior to the development of the upcoming year’s budget.  Capital Project Planning Forms must be submitted for review and prioritization by Friday, December 17, 2021 to be included in FY23 (July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023).  Any project request submitted after the deadline will not be reviewed nor included in FY23 planning.

For project proposals you would like to be considered for FY23 and beyond, you will need to complete and submit a Capital Project Planning form, following the simple 3-step process below:

  1.   Complete page one of the online form     
  2.   Secure the electronic signature of your Dean or Director
  3.   Save the signed form and email it to us at facilities@mtu.edu

Off-Cycle Capital Projects (Over $50K)

For projects over $50,000 which may come up during the year outside of the annual project planning cycle, a Capital Project Planning Form can be submitted.  These projects must include external funding sources.  Examples include new faculty start-ups, grant proposals, or emergency issues.
