SUB-COMMITTEE ON CAPITAL INVESTMENT STRATEGY (a sub-committee of the Facilities and Capital Investments Committee)
Members: David L. Brandon, Daniel T. O’Keefe
At the direction of the UF Board Chair, who will designate a review of certain proposed projects, the Sub-Committee will identify the priority of need for those projects with the goal of ensuring the following:
- that we are using our resources and space most effectively and efficiently from a long-term, institutional perspective;
- that we are utilizing the optimal source of funding/financing mechanism for each project;
- that the proposed project/use fits within the existing Master Plan and Strategic Plan; and, if not, considering whether and why an exception should be made; and
- that we are considering any other factors unique to the proposed project -- thinking from a long-term, enterprise-wide perspective.
