Proposed FY2020 Capital Budget Submitted to the Legislature
The Long-Range Capital Planning Commission approved the proposed FY 2020-2027 Capital Improvements Plan and FY 2020 Capital Budget at its November 2018 meeting. The commission submitted the plan to the Office of the Governor, the Senate President Pro Tempore and the Speaker of the House of Representatives for their consideration during the 2019 regular session.
The proposed FY2020 Capital Budget recommends a total appropriation of $26 million, including $21.1 million to the Maintenance of State Buildings Revolving Fund to implement 24 capital projects for 11 agencies and $4.9 million to fund the first year of debt service on a proposed bond package of 11 projects totaling $150.5 million.
The proposed bond package includes rehabilitation of the Governor’s Mansion, replacement of the Tulsa Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, renovation of the Jim Thorpe Building in Oklahoma City, and repair or replacement of facilities for the Departments of Public Safety, Veterans Affairs, Rehabilitation Services, Human Services, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services and the Military Department.
The Maintenance of State Buildings Revolving Fund, used for implementing capital projects, has not received an appropriation since 2014, resulting in a severely curtailed ability to address any capital needs outlined in previous capital budgets. To address the deferred maintenance backlog, the commission has proposed several policies aimed at moving state government toward a proactive, strategic leadership model of real property asset management, including:
- Establishing a recurring annual appropriation to the Maintenance of State Buildings Revolving Fund;
- Raising awareness of capital needs through presentation of the capital budget to appropriate committees in the Legislature;
- Establishing mechanisms to ensure agency accountability for the proper management of the state’s real property assets, and;
- Examining opportunities to consolidate facilities and provide facilities management services at a regional level.
