As a rule of thumb, Facilities Services project manages small to mid-size projects, not exceeding $100,000. Services may include development, design, planning, and scheduling.  Examples of these projects include minor remodels, as well as small projects designed to improve, repair, or enhance existing campus work environments or systems.

Capital Programs provides project management services to those embarking on campus renovation or construction projects. A variety of people and skills are required to start a project and bring it to a successful completion. Planners, designers, administrators, contractors, inspectors, and others work together to meet the needs of UCSF clients. In its role as customer liaison, Capital Programs enables these professionals to keep the client’s requirements as the primary objective during each phase of a project.
