Capital Projects Manual for the Illinois Public Community Colleges.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
This manual is designed primarily for use by those persons at Illinois public community colleges who are responsible for planning and keeping records of college facilities. The Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) is mandated by law to approve the expenditure of state funds for purchase of sites and the construction of facilities and to determine efficient and adequate standards for community college physical plants. The sections of this manual present information useful when considering a capital project. Various types of projects are discussed in terms of classification, approval procedures, and criteria for approval. In addition, other capital matters such as progress reports, insurance, leasing, application forms, facility codes, ICCB rules, facility inventory classification guidelines, and the quality-based selection process to choose an architect can be found in the several appendices located in the back of the manual. A college may request state funding for up to 75 percent of total project costs of any type of project listed in ICCB Rule 1501.603. The vehicle for requesting state funds is the Community College Capital Resource Allocation Management Program request submitted to the ICCB and the Illinois Board of Higher Education in July of each year.
