Planning for Master Planning.
Reeve, John R.; Smith, Marion B.
This monograph outlines a philosophy and method for master planning of higher education facilities. It is intended to provide facilities personnel with guidelines for establishing a successful planning process. The guide provides practical advice, including worksheets that can be used to identify issues and requirements. Included are examples of master plans, including scope, budget, and time comparisons. The rationale for a master plan is explained with a detailed outline of the process for developing a plan. Planning steps include determining objectives, identifying available information and resources, determining the scope of the plan, and creating a system for plan administration. The process of determining the need for consultants and obtaining qualified ones is also detailed as is the process of evaluating responses to a request for proposals for professional services. The final section examines the need for periodic review and evaluation of the master plan. (Contains 100 references.) (JLS)
