All BCIT major projects are initiated and planned by Campus Development. Major project planning is guided by the Provincial Government’s Capital Asset Management Framework (CAMF) and the Ministry of Advanced Education’s (AVED) Capital Asset Reference Guide (CARG) [PDF]. This includes best practices for capital asset management, risk assessment and procurement and development options. For less complex projects, the full process may not be necessary.
Our division deals with front end feasibility, which evaluates and assesses the potential of proposed projects through business case review, project identification, project definition and project agreement. These four steps correlate to the Ministry of AVED’s CARG process as outlined below and feed into Project Services’ Project Implementation Process.
