Campus Administered Construction Projects

2015.02 - September 9, 2015

PDF Version


Under the terms of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the State University Construction Fund (SUCF) and each campus, a campus may construct, rehabilitate, maintain, and repair its capital facilities. As part of the MOU, the campus must comply with certain SUCF and SUNY policies and procedures for the administration and management of Campus Administered Construction Projects (CAC Projects). CAC Projects are procured utilizing construction contracts (building, renovating, and reconstructing the Campus’ buildings and infrastructure) and consultant service agreements (architecture, engineering, and surveying services).

SUNY’s Office of the University Auditor (OUA) conducted several CAC Project audits and prepared this document to highlight improvement opportunities identified during these audits. These practices will help ensure that campuses have established key controls related to the administration and management of CAC Projects.

It should be noted that this document is not meant to be a comprehensive reporting of all requirements. It is representative of observed concerns.
