The Primary Client identifies a potential improvement to the
University’s facilities that would significantly improve
their ability to meet the University’s Mission.
Along with their departmental Facilities Planning and
Management Officer (FPMO), the Primary Client obtains the approval
of their Dean or Vice President for the project.
The Primary Client completes a Small
Scale Capital (Rehab) Project Request form, and submits it to
CPG at 106 Fargo Quadrangle. Capital Planning Group (CPG) reviews
the request and verifies that it is consistent with the
University’s Mission and Master Plan. If the project
meets these criteria, CPG and FP&D will assemble the Project
Team and assign a unique project number.
The Planner is the point of contact for the remainder of the
Planning Phase. The Planner will arrange an initial scope
meeting with the Primary Client, FPMO and the other Project Team
members to prepare a Scope Statement. Depending on the
project’s complexity, more than one meeting may be needed to
develop the Scope Statement.
The Scope Statement is written by the Planner and submitted for
approval to the Primary Client, FPMO, Financially Responsible
Party, Planner, Architect-in-Charge and Project Manager. When
all parties have signed the Scope Statement, the Planning Phase is
complete and the project enters the Design Phase.
