  1. Program Concept - Proposal of a project concept by a University faculty, staff, chair, dean or other university stakeholder. The goal of concept proposal is to define a scope of work which translates academic or departmental initiatives into potential facilities needs to determine if a capital construction project is necessary.
  2. Needs Assessment - Feasibility & Conformance with Master Plan managed and coordinated by IRP & FPC
