Capital Budget Services
Capital Budget Services include the development and coordination of University-level capital budget policies and procedures, such as the capital budget request, allocation and administrative processes. The professional personnel in the office represent the University to State executive and legislative staff on a wide range of Capital budget processes and policy issues related to the University. Other services include interpreting State policies and legislation related to the budget, and the development and coordination of responses made by the University to inquiries from State legislative, advisory and executive offices.
Capital Budget facilitates all capital processes, including the development of the capital request, integration with the University's Comprehensive Master Plan process, the capital allocation plan, capital expenditure control, and management of the University public works processes related to fiscal administration.
2011-2013 Capital Budget Overview
Western Washington University requested a state capital budget of $71,253,000 of which $57,950,000 was related to new appropriations and $13,303,000 to reappropriations.
Western received $28,291,000 in new appropriations and $24,902,000 in reappropriations (the increased amount for reappropriations reflects a change in expenditure forecasting methodology employed by the legislature rather than an actual increase in funding). Of the $28,291,000 in new appropriations, $14,541,000 is generated through the University from the Normal School Fund (state timber sales) and the portion of tuition and fees dedicated to construction. The State Building Construction Account (general obligation bonds) provides $13,750,000.
Effective as a result of the 2012 Supplemental Session, Western was appropriated an additional $1,530,000 for Minor Works Preservation raising the total new appropriations for 2011-2013 to $29,821,000.
