Small Project Approval Process

The Construction Management office provides the Small Projects Approval Form to coordinate projects funded directly or jointly by one or more departments. This form is used to record formal approval and authorization to ‘start work’. Department stakeholders must designate a primary contact to serve as the Project Requester. The instructions below are intended to aid the Project Requester.


  1. Contact Construction Management by phone or email to schedule a meeting to discuss your project request. Following the meeting, expect an email from us with the Small Project Approval form draft copy attached and sections A & B completed.
  2. Review Section A, if revisions are needed please let us know before completing Section C.
  3. Complete Section C by collecting signatures from your department in the order listed and route the form to the Construction Management office via campus mail. Our office forwards the form to the Vice President of Finance & Administration for final signature signifying ‘notice to proceed’ and work to be scheduled.

Note: Construction Management reviews all project billing before processing to the Business Office. At project completion a PDF copy of invoices is emailed to the Department Chair for their budget records.
