9.4 Project Authorization

9.4.1 Authorization by Board of Regents

All new buildings, major renovation, rehabilitation, or other projects, except routine maintenance, involving the campus or buildings of a USG unit using funds from any source shall require authorization by the Board of Regents and shall be implemented in accord with established Board procedures under the direction of the USG chief facilities officer.

The USG chief facilities officer is authorized to act, without prior approval of the Board of Regents, in the authorization of projects on behalf of the Board of Regents, with authority to act for the Board in the authorization of projects that are in accordance with the accepted campus master plan, provided, however, that the authority so delegated shall be for projects that do not exceed the sum of $1,000,000 in initial construction cost.

The USG chief facilities officer may delegate any or all of the above authority, to authorize projects, to individual USG institution presidents based upon an evaluation by the Chancellor or USG chief facilities officer of the ability of an institution to properly administer the delegated authority. Such delegation of authority shall be administered in accordance with Board of Regents policies, procedures and guidelines. Delegated authority may be withdrawn at the discretion of the Chancellor or the USG chief facilities officer (BoR Minutes, August, 2007).

9.4.2 Annual Plan for Capital Implementation

The Board of Regents shall establish on an annual basis the projects to be included in the USG building program upon the recommendation of the Chancellor who shall take into consideration the funds available and the requests of the presidents of the institutions (BoR Minutes, August 2007).
