Viewers will learn how Oregon University System (OUS) made the case for a 500% capital budget increase from 2001-03 to 2009-11 to attack deferred maintenance. Representatives from OUS, Portland State University (PSU) and Sightlines will discuss they used performance measurement and analysis, developed a political strategy for securing resources, and are implementing a plan for rapidly enacting capital projects at the campus level.
Additionally, Portland State University (PSU) will provide an excellent case study on the impact of the new funding. With a very densely populated urban campus, one of the oldest space profiles in the system, and the largest backlog of deferred projects, the additional funding significantly impacted PSU. PSU will discuss their strategic selection of renovation projects, which both greatly benefited academic programs and improved the overall condition and appearance of campus.
