Capital Planning Process 

Capital Plan/Deferred Maintenance Management

Arizona Board of Regents

Phoenix, Arizona


Consultants to the Arizona Board of Regents requested HHK to review the capital planning process for the Board’s 3 constituent universities (Arizona State University, The University of Arizona, and Northern State University).  The specific concerns of the Board were: what decisions the Board of Regents should make, and in which areas of the capital development process is consistency across the three universities needed / desirable?

Extensive documentation on the process of developing projects was obtained and reviewed for an analysis and recommendations responding to the Board of Regents concerns for conformance with the 3-year State Capital Improvement Plan.  Equitable distribution of funds between the constituent universities rested on developing project priority selection criteria, consultant selection criteria, and confidence in the quality and capabilities of design consultants and project cost estimates.  The study evolved into a detailed review and recommendations covering eighteen topics, including: project programming processes; project budgeting; architect and construction manager selection processes; design fee structures; project control requirements; and project scheduling

HHK conducted an independent follow-up study, based on a legislative mandate for review of capital planning of the capital renewal data collection and analysis process.  The study required site visits, extensive interviewing, and review of data and documents.  Special attention to an evaluation of a projected $160,000,000 backlog for the three universities was part of the study.

The study assessed the capital planning methodology and produced findings and recommendations for improvements, including the assessment process for buildings and infrastructure, and an evaluation of the accuracy.  The HHK services included a final report to the Board and public presentations.
