One Page Publication Summary

The 2001 Legislature directed this JLARC study of higher education facility preservation because of an inability to accurately understand the extent of facility preservation backlog at our public higher education institutions.  JLARCs proposed final report provides information about the amount, types, ages, conditions, and maintenance and repair backlogs at the six public universities and 34 community and technical colleges and also reviews state budgeting practices with respect to facility preservation efforts.  The report also proposes recommendations aimed at creating an accountability framework for tracking facility conditions, preservation backlogs, and institutional preservation expenditures; establishing clear state-level higher education facility preservation budgeting policies; and examining a capital budget mechanism to address preservation backlog reduction funding policies. The Higher Education Coordinating Board, the Office of Financial Management and the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges have provided responses to the report.
