  • Capital Outlay: Along with certain dollar thresholds specified in RS 39:128 and LAC Title 34, Part III, Chap. 2, this will determine which projects belong in Capital Outlay.
  • Procurement: Along with the provisions of RS 38:2212 this will determine how these projects are procured.
  • Capital Projects Facility Planning & ControlCapital Outlay Dollar Thresholds:
  • Less than $50,000 - Cannot be,
  • $50,000 to $150,000 (Agencies)/$500,000 (Higher Education) – Can be,
  • More than $150,000/$500,000 – Gotta be.

  • Facility Planning & Control is here to do Capital Projects.
  • Facility Planning & Control is not here to do routine or minor maintenance.
  • We are not here to do the so called “non-payable” contracts for the convenience of others.
  • If a project does not fit the definition of a Capital Project it must have another source of funding.
  • If it does, it must be capital outlay except for the gap between $50,000 & $150,000/$500,000.

  • Roofing failure is the biggest threat to any building.
  • Most construction litigation is roofing related.
  • That is why we have a Roofing Section.
  • Facility Planning & ControlStatewide Roofing Asset Management ProgramSignificant Changes
  • Lack of adequate funding is forcing the Program to reduce its efforts at chasing leaks and other minor repairs and direct them toward capital improvements.
  • The Program will continue to provide indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contracts for roofing services but the user agencies will now be responsible for the cost.
  • Agencies wishing capital outlay funding for roof replacements or repairs must submit capital outlay requests for them.
  • The full text can found in the handout and the FY13 Capital Outlay Instruction Letter.Facility Planning & ControlStatewide Roofing Asset Management ProgramIn order to make the most of the State’s limited roofing funding all state roofing assets will be placed into one of three groups with different levels of service from the Statewide Roofing Asset Management Program.Briefly, these groups will have the following characteristics.Facility Planning & ControlStatewide Roofing Asset Management ProgramStarting at the bottom:Level III:Covers: All State owned buildings not covered by Levels I & II
