The Capital Programs Institute (aka CPI or the Collaborative) is the UCOP program for design, construction and project management training. Under the coordination of Design and Construction, the program provides training for the capital programs staff on all University of California campuses and laboratories. The program is a collaborative effort, drawing on the expertise and years of experience among specialists to provide dynamic sessions covering:
- current policy, process, and contract requirements
- new delivery methods and associated contract documents
- trends and changes in industry practices
- innovations in methods and systems
- business orientation in the UC context for new project managers (“project management boot camp”)
- active discussion and idea exchanges to pollinate sister campuses with consideration of best practices and lessons learned
The collaborative’s primary audience is campus capital project managers, engineers and contract administrators. However, university staff whose work entails coordination with these project staff would also benefit (e.g., capital planners, physical & environmental planners, facility managers, EH&S inspectors, fire marshals).
