As discussed in
Stage 2: Master Plan/CEQA, the approved Physical Master Plan is the overall planning guide for campus development. Every CSU campus maintains a proposed schedule for implementation of projects over a five-year period in a document called the
Five-Year Capital Outlay Plan (PDF).
This stage of the Project Center will cover how to prepare project programs for inclusion in the Five-Year Capital Outlay Plan, including determining need, establishing project budgets, and securing funding. The five-year plans for all 23 campuses are compiled into a single document and presented annually at a meeting of the Board of Trustees for approval each November.
Once the Five-Year Capital Outlay Plan is approved by the trustees, it is then submitted to the California Department of Finance (DOF) and the
Legislative Analyst’s Office (LAO).
You have a second option to submit your project for approval:
Building projects listed in the Five-Year Capital Outlay Plan shall be included on the approved Physical Master Plan for the campus. If a proposed project is not master-planned, a minor or major master plan revision must be submitted to your campus-assigned CPDC planner and approved prior to the project being included in the five-year plan.
