The Office of Facilities Development and Capital Budget was established in 2011 by consolidating Capital Planning and Development, Facilities Design and Construction Administration and the Capital Budget Office.
In collaboration with Facilities Management, the Office of Facilities Development and Capital Budget provides leadership in planning, developing, and budgeting for high value, quality, cost-effective facilities and grounds. We support the mission and strategic vision of Western, embrace our partnership with our community and reinforce our stewardship of the environment.

2013-2015 Major and Intermediate Capital Budget Project Proposals (Submitted Aug 1, 2012)
As part of the State's Higher Education Capital Budget request process, Western submitted separate proposals for all Major (>$5M) and Intermediate (>$2M and <$5M) projects being requested in the 2013-2015 Capital Budget Request. These proposals were scored by evaluation panels and the State Office of Financial Management (OFM) produced a final priority scored list of Higher Ed requests for gubernatorial and legislative consideration. The Governor and legislature will use both the final priority list and the University's 2013-2015 Capital Budget Request submission to determine Western's capital funding for the new biennium.
2013-2015 OFM SINGLE PRIORITIZED LIST (December 2012 2012)
On December 18,2012, Governor Gregoire released her 2013-2015 Capital Budget recommendation. Some time in January, it is expected that Governor-elect Jay Inslee will release his 2013-2015 Capital Budget. During the legislative session both the House and Senate will release their recommendations for the 2013-2015 budget. A conference committee made up of House and Senate members will then determine the final 2013-2015 Capital Budget some time in the spring. The different budgets will be posted here, comparing them to WWU's original Capital Budget Request
