Los Angeles Community College District is seeking a collaborative team comprised of (1 PTE positions at 20 hours per week each) team to support its Strategic Facilities Planning and Capital Outlay Project needs.

Districtwide Five-Year Construction Plan Update

The Five-Year Construction Plan (5YCP) is an annual summary of current and proposed capital outlay projects. The Plan gives the State Chancellor’s Office a complete picture of the capital improvement needs and projects at a college, enabling the State to make informed decisions regarding project priorities for State funding. Each project within the 5YCP includes a description of scope, project cost estimate, project space effects, schedule for occupancy, and funding source. The 5YCP analyzes project data with capacity load ratios over a seven-year span. Capacity load ratio is a calculation of space capacity as related to the amount of weekly student contact hour load. Capacity load ratio is used to gauge the amount of space need or surplus for classroom, laboratory, office, library and audio/visual media type spaces. Projects where State funding is proposed the 5YCP is used to analyze State supportability of projects and funding priority points. Data is revised annually within the State’s FUSION database and must be submitted by the established deadline date.

Initial Project Proposals (IPPs) and Final Project Proposal (FPPs)

The Initial Project Proposal (IPP) is the first proposal submitted to the State to propose State funding for a project. The purpose of the IPP is to introduce the project’s concept, impacts on space, and estimated cost so the State may decide if a district should continue into more detailed planning. An IPP may be submitted to the State on an annual basis by the established deadline date that year. The Final Project Proposal (FPP) is the final proposal submitted to the state to propose state funding for a project. The FPP includes project justification, scope definition, estimated costs, schedule and initial design concepts.

Space Inventory Update

California Education Code Section 81821(e) requires “an annual inventory of all facilities of the district.” The California Community College Space Inventory provides planning and management data about existing physical facilities. The building and room data are for planning, scheduling, assigning, and accounting for the various types of spaces in facilities available for serving the purposes of the California Community Colleges. Closeout of State Funded Projects All projects which receive State Capital Outlay funding are required to follow the State Chancellor’s Office process for reporting closeout activities. State closeout procedures involve updating project data and submittal of relevant closeout documents in the FUSION system. Closeout information for each State funded project must be updated in FUSION at the time of occupancy (inclusion within the Space Inventory) as well as at the time of final DSA Certification.

Strategic Planning

Strategic planning includes incorporating academic initiatives, facilities master plans, sustainability and energy efficiency resolutions, and technology initiatives into districtwide strategic master plans. These plans would guide programming and design efforts to ensure key strategic initiatives are woven into the District’s construction bond program.
