Description

Capital Development Committee. Current statute requires the
Colorado commission on higher education (commission) to request
annually from the governing board of each state institution of higher
education (institution) a 2-year projection (projection) of capital
construction projects to be undertaken by an institution that is estimated
to require total project expenditures exceeding $2 million if the capital

construction project is for new acquisitions of real property or new
construction and funded solely from cash funds held by the institution or
the project is funded through the higher education revenue bond intercept
program, or exceeding $10 million if the project is not for new
acquisitions of real property or new construction and is funded solely
from cash funds held by the institution.
The bill adjusts the law to current practice and instead requires the
projection to be reviewed at the commission's next available meeting and
repeals the requirement that an institution amend the projection prior to
commencing a project if the project is not in the institution's most recent
projection.
The bill repeals the requirement that the commission annually
prepare a unified, 2-year report for capital construction or capital renewal
projects acquired or constructed and operated and maintained solely from
cash funds held by the institution that are not for new acquisitions of real
property or new construction and are estimated to require total project
expenditures exceeding $10 million.
The bill repeals the requirement that the commission annually
prepare a unified, 2-year report for capital construction projects for new
acquisitions of real property or for new construction, estimated to require
total project expenditures exceeding $2 million.
Current law requires the capital development committee (CDC) to
review the projections at a hearing but does not specify what to do when
the legislature is not in session. The bill clarifies deadlines for when such
hearings must be held. The bill also requires each state institution of
higher education, for informational purposes only, to annually present its
current projections at the capital development committee's December
hearings.
Current law requires the CDC to have a hearing regarding
projections whenever a projection is amended. The bill repeals this
requirement.
Current law specifies that the CDC is required to review and
approve guidelines prepared by the office of the state architect regarding
the classification of facilities as academic facilities or auxiliary facilities.
The bill repeals this requirement.
