The State of Wisconsin Legislature and the Executive Branch place a high value on long-range planning for state agency and educational facilities. Per the Wisconsin Statutes, providing the facilities necessary for state agencies and educational institutions to properly perform their duties should be accomplished within a long-range plan with funding provided by successive legislatures. § 13.48(1)

Biennially, each state agency is required to submit a capital budget request within the context of a long-range plan to the Department of Administration. The UW System process for developing its Capital Budget and long-range plan recommendations is based on planning models common throughout higher education. UW System long-range planning identifies building conditions, program needs, space adequacy, and utilization; evaluates alternatives and prioritizes space and program needs; and documents the six-year capital plans per UW institution.
