Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) Policy

REASON FOR POLICY

The University of Connecticut By-Laws indicate that the Executive Vice President for Administration and Chief Financial Officer (EVP Admin &CFO) is responsible for overseeing long-range financial planning and management of the operating and capital budgets for all units of the University.  Working closely with the Provost and the other Vice Presidents, the EVP Admin & CFO oversees capital and operating budget development, monitoring and reporting; and coordinates operating and capital budgets in conformity with policies set forth by the Board of Trustees.  The CIP policy ensures that these responsibilities may be accomplished.
