Deferred Maintenance Project

The university is accepting proposals to address deferred maintenance projects on our campuses. Deferred maintenance refers to the backlog of past due maintenance and renewal needs for building systems and components.

Approximately $5 million of the appropriated funds from the Kansas Legislature will be awarded to support the much-needed maintenance and upgrades of aging university facilities. Proposals for funding support require a one-to-one funding match. Review additional information about available funding and the proposal process.

The Campus Planning and Development Advisory Committee will review and prioritize proposals according to university and Kansas Board of Regents initiatives.
