Estimating

COVID-19 Notice:

For the remainder of the fiscal year, any new project requests for estimating, design, or construction - regardless of funding source - will require your Vice President’s approval.

Funding for any project will require approval through the Cabinet.

This ensures leadership has visibility over the campus environment and financials during this challenging time.

Please reference the Project Deferment Exception form found here.
