There are several methods available to UGA for funding a capital project (state appropriations, private gifts, general institutional, etc.) and projects are often a mix of several funding sources.
UGA maintains a 5-year Capital Outlay Plan which helps identify future facility and infrastructure requirements necessary to best serve the University’s overall Strategic Mission. The plan is revised regularly and during this process it is thoroughly examined by stakeholders in diverse disciplines of the campus community. The University System of Georgia accumulates the capital plan of each institution and uses this information to develop their annual capital budget recommendations which are then submitted to the Governor’s Office of Planning and Budget for consideration.
