Project Categories

A project is classified into one of four categories outlined below. To determine the correct category for your project, use the Capital Projects Flowchart. The policies to be applied and the procedures to be followed are related to the Total Project Cost (TPC) and/or type of project. (TPC includes cost of design, construction, furnishings, permits, contingency and inflation, as well as cost of all phases of an overall project or program, regardless of duration or scheduling.)
