Capital Project Planning

University of Alaska System

Fairbanks, Alaska

As part of the University’s overall capital project planning process, the University of Alaska System Board of Regents, requested HHK to reviewed formula funding for annual budgeted Maintenance & Repairs and capital funded Repairs & Renovations.  A major concern was the adequacy of funding to address current backlogs of deferred maintenance and avoidance of recurring major repair backlog. The University estimated $150 million in deferred maintenance for the System’s three campuses at Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Southeast (Juneau, Ketchikan, and Sitka) and 

HHK provided an evaluation of reported needs, methodology of a data collection and capital project funding requests.   In addition HHK reviewed the formula applied for current levels of funding for maintenance and capital renewal, and a funding strategy for the reported deferred maintenance needs.  

An analysis of documentation outlining the methodology for developing needs, overall constituent campus conditions, and status of funding requests was conducted. By a document review and interviews of System staff and campus administrators, recommendations included the need to verify deferred maintenance estimates, adequate funding of maintenance and capital renewal, and strategies for requesting funds from the State legislature.  A report and presentation was made to the Board and campus representatives by teleconference.

Study findings led to a revision in operating and capital budget funding formulas to increase total Systemwide funding.
