The staff in the Capital Planning unit prepares 10-year Capital Plans for both State-funded and non-State funded major projects. The staff develops these capital plans on an annual basis, working closely in coordination with leadership from the four Professional Schools (Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, and Pharmacy), Medical Center, Finance, Real Estate Services, Capital Programs, Facilities Management, Campus Life Services, and Budget & Resource Management.
State-funded projects at UCSF tend to include seismic & life-safety building improvements and modernization of aging infrastructures. Non-State funded projects include construction or renovation of built space for health sciences academic functions and support; infrastructure; auxiliary enterprises and fee-supported facilities; and the UCSF Medical Center. Non-State funded projects are funded from auxiliary revenue, campus equity, gifts, debt, and other non-State sources. The Capital Plan is updated annually and submitted to the Office of the President, which incorporates the Capital Plan in a Systemwide report to the University of California Regents.
