Capital Support: Objectives, Policy, Implementation. Brief to the Council of Ontario Universities Prepared by Committee on Capital Financing.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.
To encourage an explicit and more complete statement of policy and objectives so that the universities would have improved opportunities to plan intelligently for the future, the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) prepared this brief to suggest to the Ontario Council on University Affairs (OCUA) some factors to be taken into account in establishing objectives and policy for capital financing. Among the objectives deemed paramount by the Committee are the following: the adaptation of the existing physical plant to meet changing needs, the preservation of the physical plant for requisite quality and performance, the replacement of equipment and furniture for requisite quality and performance, and the accommodation of present enrollment and anticipated growth in overall enrollment. Suggested government policy to support objectives are these: fund cyclic renewal (to include renovations, alterations, and the replacement of furniture and equipment), fund new space as necessary, and fund the rental of temporary space or the purchase or rental of portable space. The brief also lists factors to be considered in planning for the implementation of the policy and aids or prerequisites to capital planning and the equitable distribution of funds. Appendices contain three previous COU submissions on capital financing. (JT)
