Estimating

Cabinet-level Reviews:

Estimate requests no longer require departments to submit the Vice President Approval form.

Facilities will work with the department to understand the scope, and if the work appears it will exceed $100,000 in cost we will coordinate cabinet-level approvals on behalf of the department.
