Definitive guide to capital planning

This guide provides insights on setting clear strategic goals, managing projects and programs from start to finish, keys to accurate forecasting and analyses, and best ways to collaborate with agencies.

The process of successful capital planning is critical to the long-term health of your construction program. Whether it is new construction, a renovation project, or an expansion, accurately planning and budgeting for each phase of your program is (probably) your top priority. How do you decide which programs and projects to fund, and how do you gather all pertinent information to help you make those decisions?

It’s important to remember that success may look different across agencies. Having clear strategic priorities laid out at the very beginning of your capital planning process will help your agency know how to plan, what to plan, and how to track and monitor the information needed. Picking the right projects, accurate forecasting, and streamlined communication are goals that any agency can achieve with the right tools in place.

Top-performing capital owners look for ways to reduce costs, plan with confidence, and maximize impact. By following the best practices outlined in this guide, you’ll be on the path to success. This guide contains the following:
