 Preparing capital agenda items for President and Board of Trustees


Reporting on capital performance




The department identifies funding options and ensures that projects comply with University policies and Massachusetts law, as well as working together with the Commonwealth's Division of Capital Asset Management to program renovation and construction activity supported by state funding.
