Capital Projects Council (CPC)

The Capital Projects Council (CPC), chaired by the President, reviews and approves all Purdue projects for the construction of new facilities and new uses of University land. In addition, the Council reviews facilities additions, renovations and/or capital improvement projects estimated to cost $500,000 or more, and sculptures, monuments, artwork, memorials or any other site features, prior to being presented to or discussed by advisory groups, prospective donors, or any other organization outside Purdue University. The Council generally meets every other month.

Prior to submission, the CPC forms (defined below) and supporting documentation must first be reviewed and approved by the Department Head, Dean/Fiscal Officer and the President's Direct Report, as appropriate. Forms and related documents then should be submitted to the University Architect, according to the CPC Calendar below.

  • Capital Projects Approval Request (CPC-1)
    • The Project Concept Approval request (CPC-1) is used to inform the Capital Projects Council, assess the proposed project concept and request administrative authorization prior to being presented to or discussed by advisory groups, prospective donors or any other organization outside of Purdue University.
  • Capital Projects Project Proposal (CPC-2)
    • Following CPC-1 approval, Project Proposal (CPC-2) is used for the Capital Projects Council to review the project proposal documentation and its feasibility.
  • Request for Professional Services (RPS)
    (Original, signed RPS must be received by Energy and Construction or Physical and Capital Planning before the process can begin.)
  • Capital Project Request for Assessment
