Analysis Variable:   Completion Costs-Deferred Construction Projects-Not In Plan
Survey Item Text
FY 2003
Please provide the estimated costs of any deferred projects for new construction of science and engineering research facilities that are needed for current program commitments, but are not yet funded and not yet scheduled for FY 2004 or FY 2005. Please estimate costs separately for projects included in your institutional plan and projects not included in this institutional plan. Institutional plans usually will include goals, strategies, and budgets for fulfilling your institution's mission during a specific time period.

FY 2005 to present
Please provide the estimated costs of any deferred new construction projects of S&E research facilities that are needed for current program commitments, but are not yet funded and not yet scheduled to start in your upcoming two FYs. Include research animal space in the relevant fields of S&E. Include only projects whose prorated cost was estimated to be $250,000 or more for at least one S&E field. Please estimate costs separately for projects included in your institutional plan and projects not included in this institutional plan. Institutional plans usually will include goals, strategies, and budgets for fulfilling your institution's mission during a specific time period.
Description
Deferred projects are those that: (1) are not funded, and (2) are not scheduled for 2 years following the survey year. Do not include projects planned for developing new programs or expanding your current programs.
Current research program commitments include current faculty and staff or those to whom offers have been made, grants awarded (whether or not research has actually begun) and programs which have been approved.
If research space will be shared by two or more fields: estimate the portion of the costs for each field. If space will be used for other purposes in addition to science and engineering research, estimate the costs for the research portion of the space.
Research animal space includes all departmental and central facilities, such as laboratories, housing, and associated support areas, that are subject to local, state, and federal government policies and regulations concerning humane care and use of laboratory animals.
FY 2003
New construction refers to construction of a new building, additions to an existing building, and the building out of shell space.

Shell space is unfinished space that intentionally is left for completion at a later time.

FY 2005 to present
New construction is the construction of a new building or additions to an existing building.
