2011-13 Capital Budget

Capital Budget

Washington State University requested $207 million for 2011-13 capital projects. The final budget of $72.2 million is lower than both the $79 million House proposal, the $102 million Senate proposal and slightly lower than the $72.7 million Governor's recommendation. The final budget includes funding for the following capital projects:

  • Spokane Biomedical & Health Sciences construction $35 million. This amount would fund 50% of the $70.775 million needed to construct the building. The facility directly supports the proposed expansion of medical education and health science programs in Eastern Washington, $600k of which is funded in the operating request.
  • Minor Capital Preservation $24.3 million. WSU requested $42.5 million for facility preservation projects and $21.2 million for minor capital improvements and omnibus equipment.
  • Clean Technology Laboratory $2.5 million. WSU requested $5.8 million to design the $57.7 million building which is the institution's second highest capital priority. The facility will house basic and applied science and engineering programs that lead to new technologies that reduce the state's reliance on foreign oil, minimize greenhouse gas emissions and improve air and water quality.
  • Agricultural Animal Health Research Facility $250,000. The appropriation would fund WSU's request for predesign of this $23 million building to accommodate expanded global animal health, food safety and infectious and emerging disease research programs and vaccine development research.
  • Preventative Maintenance & Building System Repairs $10.12 million. Represents the transfer of ordinary facility maintenance expenditures from the operating budget to capital fund sources.
