This policy applies to small construction projects, as defined in ss. 13.48(10) and (29), Wis. Stats., and the authority to submit such projects to the State Division of Facilities Development.
State Building Commission policies permit the Board of Regents to submit certain reviewed and approved small projects directly to the State Division of Facilities Development for implementation rather than obtaining prior approval of the State Building Commission. This policy delegates that authority to the UW System President.
The Board of Regents delegates its authority to the UW System President to submit reviewed and approved small project requests, as defined in ss. 13.48(10) and (29), Wis. Stats., directly to the Division of Facilities Development for implementation.
Requests submitted to the Division of Facilities Development under this policy shall not exceed the dollar-amount authority delegated to the Secretary of the State Building Commission, per applicable sections(s) of the Wisconsin Statutes and the State Building Commission Policy Manual, for the administration of small project requests.
