Capital proposals over $200,000 are submitted as an Expression of Interest (EOI) to the Capital Management Group (CMG) for consideration.

The CMG considers all EOI and decides which EOI are developed into a Capital Request Submission (CRS).

2018 deadlines

Requests must be submitted by the due date:

  • EOI are due by 11 May 2018
  • CRS are due by 17 September 2018.

You can submit at any time up until the due date, and we encourage you to submit applications early.

The 2018 review process and deadlines were circulated in a memo to the University Senior Management Group (USMG) from Professor Aidan Byrne, Provost (PDF, 360KB) (staff login required).

Expressions of Interest (EOI)

An EOI is used to make an initial request to fund capital works over $200 000.

Once submitted, the EOI is assessed by the Capital Management Group (CMG). You will be advised of the next steps and submission dates.

If the EOI is assessed as not suitable for progression, either:

  • the EOI can be revised and resubmitted, or
  • no further action is taken.


Capital Request Submissions (CRS)

Once received, all CRS are consolidated and assessed at a dedicated CMG meeting.

Approved capital submissions and all works and projects in progress will be included in the Indicative Rolling Capital Program, which will be presented to University Senior Management Group at the end of 2018.

Business Case (BC)

Some capital proposals will be developed into a Business Case (BC). CMG will advise if you need to complete a Business Case for your capital proposal and provide you with a deadline for submission.


Strategic and master plan

The Strategic Plan drives UQ's cycle of planning and is articulated through strategic objectives within the University Operational Plan (UOP).

A key action in the UOP is the development of the St Lucia Campus Master Plan, a long-term vision for guiding the development of the campus. The Capital Planning Framework supports strategic consideration and assessment of capital proposals and informs capital planning and budgeting, which is aligned with the priorities of the Master Plan.
