Statewide Capital Expenditure Planning FY 2024-2025 Guidelines
Senate Bill 1, Article IX, Section 11.03, 87th Legislature, Regular Session – 2021, directs the Texas Bond Review Board to prepare a statewide Capital Expenditure Plan for the 2024-25 fiscal biennium. The plan is to identify the state’s capital needs, alternative methods of financing those needs, and the possible budgetary impact of capital requests on the state’s debt capacity. It will provide a tool for decision makers to assess individual capital expenditure requests within a framework of the state’s overall financial situation. The plan will be submitted to the Governor’s Office of Budget & Planning and the Legislative Budget Board no later than September 1, 2022.
As defined in Section 11.03, capital projects are limited to:
- land acquisition,
- construction of buildings and other facilities,
- renovation of buildings and other facilities expected to exceed $1 million in the aggregate for a single state agency or higher education institution, and
- major information resource projects expected to exceed $1 million.
The plan will include both new and existing projects with expenditures anticipated for the 2022-23 fiscal biennium.
Methods of Collection
The Bond Review Board works in conjunction with the Higher Education Coordinating Board in collecting capital expenditure data by using a web-based method of data collection maintained by the Higher Education Coordinating Board.
