In accordance with the Connecticut General Statutes Sec. 10a-6 and 10a-8, the Board of Governors prepares and presents to the Governor and General Assembly a consolidated capital budget request and five-year plan with recommendations for public higher education. Through passage of the UConn 2000 legislation, the University of Connecticut obtained authorization for approximately $1 billion of new capital projects over the ten years ending in 2005. This work is continuing under 21st Century UConn, a 10 year, $1.3 billion extension to UConn 2000 approved by the General Assembly and Governor in the August, 2002, Special Session. Anticipated allocations for UConn 2000/21st Century and its five-year plan are detailed. Capital requests of each constituent unit illustrate different stages of progress each has made toward implementing its respective vision. The five-year capital plan for Connecticut's public higher education system covers the period 2005 to 2010 and includes sixty-five general-obligation bond projects across the Department of Higher Education, University of Connecticut and its Health Center, the Connecticut State University, the Community-Technical College System and Charter Oak State College. Connecticut's public higher education system is comprised of over 500 buildings with about 24 million gross square feet spread across the state on 26 campuses with a conservative estimated building replacement value of over $4 billion, representing 40 percent of total state-owned space. It is imperative that a system to ensure proper maintenance and preservation to protect this substantial investment is in place. This capital budget request of $2.25 million - less than one percent of the annual higher education authorizations - is required to complete the system and would ensure that preliminary efforts have not been wasted. This report contains summary capital budget requests in tabular form.
