SPMC

Space Planning and Management Committee (SPMC) covers a wide variety of projects, most of which fall into the following categories:

  • Requests for new space.
  • Projects with cost over $10,000 that require central funding.
  • Projects with cost of $50,000 to $2,999,999 regardless of the source of funding.
  • Projects that affect the aesthetics of public spaces:
  • Digital Signage Projects
  • Request for exterior space allocation (in conjunction of Grounds Monitoring Committee)

Proposals by all academic units must be submitted first to the appropriate Department Chair, Institute Director, who will, if approved, submit it to the Office of the Dean. Only projects that have been validated by the Office of the Dean will be analyzed by the Executive Secretary of SPMC to prepare “Request Packages” for SPMC review. Note: proposals related to research activities also require the approval of the Vice Principal Research.

Proposals from all administrative units, Office of the Registrar, and the Library must be submitted to the Senior Manager or Director, who will, if approved, submit them to the CAO. Only projects that have been validated by the CAO, will be analyzed by the Executive Secretary of SPMC to prepare “Request Packages” for SPMC review.

Proposals by all student services units and student organizations must be submitted to the Dean of Student Affairs. Only projects that have been signed by the Dean of Student Affairs, and validated by the CAO will be analyzed by the Executive Secretary of SPMC to prepare “Request Packages” for SPMC review.

Proposals for allocation of external space require review by the Grounds Monitoring Committee.

All proposals have to be submitted by mid-January.  Only unexpected and urgent requests will be considered at other times.

SPMC applications that do not require SPMC funding and new space allocation can be submitted at any time.
