Capital Planning

Capital Planning serves as the Facilities Planning & Development liaison between UC Davis Health, UC Davis Chancellor’s office, and the University of California Office of the President to manage the capital improvement program and facilitate approvals of major capital projects (projects more than $1 million). The Chancellor serves as the delegated authority to approve funding for major capital projects, from $1 million to $70 million, that are on the Capital Financial Plan. Projects with a budget greater than $70 million are required to be presented to the Board of Regents and have a more complex approval process. Additionally, Capital Planning leads the effort for the annual updates to the Capital Financial Plan and the annual report on Major Capital Projects implementation.

Capital Financial Plan:

The Capital Financial Plan is a University of California systemwide plan that identifies the capital need at each UC location for buildings and other physical infrastructure projects over a 6 year period. The Capital Financial Plan presents proposed capital projects, public private partnerships, and the acquisition of real property. The Capital Financial Plan remains consistent with previous years' priorities and continues to reflect the strategic initiatives and capital investments required to meet the priorities of UC Davis Health.

UC Davis Health's capital priorities continue to focus on improving:

  • Inpatient, outpatient, research, and education space by cost management of an active and large capital program
  • Working towards meeting California seismic mandates
  • Modernizing aging infrastructure and technology
  • Upgrading hospital space, medical equipment, and parking infrastructure to support continued growth
  • Expanding outpatient services in the Sacramento region to improve patient access to better serve the community
