W. Va. Code R. § 135-12-2 - Purpose

Current through Register Vol. XXXIX, No. 11, March 18, 2022

2.1. The purpose of this rule is to provide the West Virginia Council for Community and Technical College Education (Council) and the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission (Commission) authority to establish policies and procedures to meet the legislative objective stated in West Virginia Code § 18B-1D-3 for the development of a state-level facilities plan and funding mechanism except for the exempt institutions that are not subject to this rule. The plan and funding mechanism must reduce the obligation of students and parents to bear the cost of higher education capital projects and facilities maintenance. The implementation of the plan must result in the following outcomes:
2.1.a. Development by the Council and Commission of a compact with elected state officials to fund a significant portion of higher education capital project needs from dedicated state revenues;
2.1.b. Development by the Council and Commission of a system to establish priorities for institution capital projects in a manner that is consistent with state public policy goals for higher education;
2.1.c. Implementation of facilities maintenance plans by institutions to ensure that maintenance needs are not deferred inappropriately;
2.1.d. Efficient use of existing classroom and other space by institutions, while maintaining an appropriate deference to the value judgments of the institutional governing boards;
2.1.e. New capital funding is applied effectively to projects that have a demonstrated need for new facilities or major renovations;
2.1.f. The cost of operating and maintaining the facilities and physical plants of institutions are appropriate for the size and mission of the institution; and
2.1.g. Capital and facilities maintenance planning that gives careful consideration to the recommendations arising from the committee established by the Joint Committee on Government and Finance for the purpose of making a specific and detailed analysis of higher education capital project and facilities maintenance needs.
