Campus Planning Committee: Meeting of Sept 24, 2009
1) Approval of the May 14, 2009 Minutes--at this session the committee discussed --at length--the process of ranking projects. The CPC had intended to meet over the summer, but due to the pending appointment of incoming Provost, Alan Fish advised that the CPC suspend these discussions until fall.
2) David Miller, of UW System, gave an overview of the capital ranking process from the UW System point of view. In essence, he addressed whether or not any one UW campus disporpotionately benefits from the process. In short, campuses, such as UW-Madison, that are able to supplement their proposals with Gifts & Grants are more successful.
3) Alan Fish, of FP&M, gave a presentation on the UW-Madison 2011-17 Capital Budget and explained Madison's process of developing construction proposals. At his conclusion, the CPC voted on the proposals that we will hear during the Fall 2009. In addition, the CPC questioned the two-tier system and has marked the December 3rd meeting for a larger discussion on projects that lack Gifts and Grants.
With that, the meeting adjourned.
