2009/10 Support Budget I

Deferred Maintenance (Beyond Compact), $25 Million

The facilities of the 23 campuses of the CSU plus the Office of the Chancellor constitute over 48 million gross square feet (GSF) of state-funded space and over 31 million GSF of non-state-funded facilities.

A substantial number of CSU facilities were built in the period from the late 1950s through the mid-1960s. In 1974, the CSU began tracking deferred maintenance, replacement, and renewal costs. By 2009/10, the CSU conservatively estimates a systemwide deferred maintenance backlog of over $435 million.

This one-time funding request of $25 million will help the CSU address the outstanding deferred maintenance backlog and support the CSU's commitment to increasing its maintenance budgets to provide safe, functional, and efficiently operating buildings to serve its students, faculty, and staff.
