Project Management



Overview

Capital Project Defined

For university purposes, capital projects (projects) are defined as funds for construction of a
fixed asset. If the project qualifies, a separate distinct project number is created within the
Banner system in order to capture all expenditures related to construction for the purpose of
capitalization.

Qualification – A capital project must meet all three (3) of these criteria:

  • $50,000 or more of capitalizable* expenditures
  • Life of asset extended more than one year
  • University will own the asset

*Note: Routine general maintenance projects, such as interior painting and replacement of flooring are not considered capitalizable and therefore cannot be considered a part of the $50,000 to determine if a project will result in a fixed asset.

The information contained within this page will help guide you to the necessary forms, policies and procedures, training, and tools needed to account for capital projects.
