UW Planning & Management is responsible for University capital planning and development, financial planning and allocation, and university strategy management.
This responsibility is carried out by five areas:
Campus Master Plan. Planning & Management manages the Campus Master Plan, developed by the University and approved by the Seattle City Council in December 2002 and by the Board of Regents in January 2003, which guides the development of the Seattle Campus.
Capital Planning & Development (CPD). CPD oversees all activities associated with real estate acquisition, capital planning, financing, and gaining approval for construction of new facilities for the University. The following formerly independent service groups have been merged to create Capital Planning and Development:
Office of Planning & Budgeting (OPB). OPB provides analysis and information about UW’s financial and physical resources to support and enhance the University’s planning, policy formation and decision-making.
University Strategy Management (SM). SM manages, implements, and reports on selected strategic initiatives to the Board of Regents, President, Provost, and senior leadership.
Special Projects. This office conducts special projects and studies for the University.
Planning & Management also facilitates the monthly Administrators' Council meetings.
