Capital Outlay is the portion of the State budget that is devoted to the planning and financing of construction, renovation, remodeling, repair, and maintenance of facilities and capital assets for use by State agencies, State-supported public universities and community colleges.
Institutions are required by law to annually submit five-year master plans to the Department of Technology, Management, and Budget (DTMB) and the Joint Capital Outlay Subcommittee (JCOS). These master plans also include, as part of the plan, current capital outlay project requests.
GRCC will complete renovations in Cook Academic Hall renovations in August 2014. This project was authorized for construction in Public Act 192 of 2012.
The 2015 updated 5-Year Capital Outlay plan was approved by the Board of Trustees on October 21, 2013. This plan includes a new project request for FY 2015 State cost-share consideration. The new request is for an addition to an existing facility that will house the GRCC Education and Lab Preschool program. The entire plan and project request can be viewed via links to the right.
