Report on Collaborative Facilities Projects.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.
California's community colleges develop their own requests in concert with their district five-year master plan. They then submit those requests to the State Chancellor's Office for review. This document discusses the current process of submitting proposals for collaborative facilities projects, and outlines and discusses five recommendations for changing current procedures. The first recommendation is that collaborative facilities projects should compete in the existing California Community Colleges approval process. Second, collaborative facilities projects must have a separate funding source or additional funding from the regular capital outlay program. Third, collaborative facilities projects must contain a 50 percent local match to the state investment in the project cost, with the proposing community college district providing at least 20 percent of the local match amount. The fourth recommendation is that collaborative facilities projects should have the flexibility to plan for a greater percentage capacity load than provided through current General Obligation bond funding resources. The last recommendation is that collaborative facilities projects should be considered as a pilot program for lump sum funding by the legislature. This document has three appendices, which contain the California State University's 1994 policy and procedures on collaborative facilities projects, acknowledgments, and 12 references. (TGO)
