Guidance for Capital funding and projects
Capital Decision Point Committee
The Capital Decision Point Committee considers major capital projects at critical stages in their procurement and delivery to provide assurance to the Council that the project is consistent with the agreed initial aims and that it can progress successfully to the next stage in the decision point process.
For information about key stages, please consult the Capital Projects Decision Point Guidance [PDF].
College Infrastructure Strategy
SFC’s approach to determining future investment in Scotland’s college estate and other college infrastructure is set out in the SFC’s College Infrastructure Strategy: The approach to delivering Scotland’s College Infrastructure Plan. The Strategy sets out the collective approach between SFC and colleges to develop an Infrastructure Investment Plan which will cover the period 2023-33. The Investment Plan will identify investment need, which includes investment for net zero, training equipment and digital needed for a sustainable college estate to deliver the desired outcomes for students, staff and communities.
Procedure notes for the Disposal of Property
The Disposal of Property: Procedures for Universities [PDF] notes should be followed by institutions seeking to dispose of surplus property (i.e. any land or building where Exchequer funds have been used in its purchase, upkeep or maintenance) and to retain the proceeds from such disposals.
Colleges who are looking to dispose of any property should contact Andrew Millar, email: firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Post occupancy evaluation
Post occupancy evaluation guidance [PDF] provides a structured review of the process of delivering a capital project as well as a review of operational, functional and strategic performance of the building following occupation. This is a recognised way of providing feedback on the performance of the project throughout a building's lifecycle from initial concept through to occupation.
