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.


Over the last several months, the University has been finalizing plans for the 2017-2019 Capital Budget Request process. Potential major (over $5 million) and intermediate-sized ($2 million to $5 million) projects for initial consideration in the Ten-Year Plan are being discussed with the Vice Presidents and the Capital Development Working Group.


It is now the time to develop and submit 2017-2019 minor capital requests ($25,000 - $2,000,000). The form is available at:
