The Commission Planning Division provides assistance in the development of plans for future facility and infrastructure needs and the development of capital funding requests. The Commission manages the facilities and programming assessment processes for capital project development, enabling agencies and institutions to develop more accurate scopes of work for their projects.

Commission staff provides design and program guidance, documentation of project needs and impacts, and cost evaluation. In K-12 projects, planners are especially active in the development of the foundation of the state’s school construction and renovation process: the Master Facilities Plan (MFP). Using their considerable expertise and the technical resources of various outside firms, planners work in conjunction with school administrators to develop an MFP that is comprehensive in terms of future needs, but is also unique for each school district. The MFP serves as the basis on which the budget is established for Committee-funded projects Master Plan Development. The Committee assists with the development and management of a facility's master plan for future facilities and infrastructure needs.

The FY 2017- FY 2018 Capital Appropriations Bill (SB 310) is effective August 15, 2016.
