Each year, Florida’s public universities are required to submit a Fixed Capital Outlay Request to the Board of Governors for potential incorporation into the Board of Governors’ budget request. At the same time, they are expected to submit a Five-Year Capital Outlay request.
The University of North Florida’s Board of Trustees is charged with approving and submitting the PECO plan for the university in consultation with the President. The attached schedule shows UNF’s proposed three-year and five-year capital requests (PECO). Each of the items included in this proposed request is consistent with the university’s goals and master plan.
Vice President Shuman will address the committee and present this item.
According to the Florida Senate – 2012, the Capital Improvement Trust Fund (CITF) fee is not to exceed 10 percent of the tuition for resident students or 10 percent of the sum of tuition and out-of-state fees for nonresident students. The CITF is to be used for certain projects or real property acquisitions. Also, it is required that the Division of Bond Finance of the State Board of Administration analyze any proposed fee reductions to the CITF; and that the Board of Governors approve any proposed fee reductions.
Each university is to establish a separate CITF fee and building fee at the main campus of the university. Also, each university is to establish a fee committee to recommend any increase in the fees and that committee is to be composed of students and members appointed by the university president. The university president is to approve committee recommendations, noting that an increase in fees may occur only once each fiscal year. The Board of Governors is to adopt regulations and timetables to implement the fees.
The University of North Florida is proposing an increase in the CITF of $2.00 per credit hour, which would create a total of $6.76 for resident students and $6.76 for non-resident students. The first proposed projects would be (1) recreational gymnasium/pool [$3,550,000 estimated 2013-2014 project cost], and (2) contributions to the sanctuary/performance hall [$3,550,000 estimated 2013-2014 project cost].
Vice President Shuman will address the committee and briefly describe the need for each of these selected projects.
According to Florida Statutes, the Board of Trustees shall, each year, adopt a capital outlay budget for the upcoming year. This plan shall designate the proposed capital outlay expenditures by project from all fund sources. Attached is the Annual Capital Outlay Budget for Fiscal Year 2012-2013.

The purpose of this item is to seek Board approval to name Building 4.
