Project Title:

Assessing the Capital Needs of the National Institutes of Health Main Campus
PIN: DEPS-BICE-17-01        

Major Unit:

Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences

Sub Unit: Board Infrastructure & the Constructed Environment DEPS

RSO: Offutt, Martin

Subject/Focus Area: Engineering and Technology; Health and Medicine; Transportation and Infrastructure

Project Scope
At the request of the Office of Research Facilities Development and Operations, National Institutes of Health, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will convene an ad hoc committee to: (1) identify facilities in greatest need of repair or those most impacting mission implementation; (2) assess the rationale and composition of projects to bring the NIH main campus facilities up to current standards or acceptable operational performance which meet mission objectives; (3) evaluate at a high level the completeness, accuracy, and relevance of cost estimates (already developed by/for NIH) for proposed capital projects; and (4) identify potential factors and approaches that the NIH should consider in developing a comprehensive capital strategy for its main campus portfolio of facilities.  It is desired that the study identify approaches based on five (5), ten (10), and twenty (20) year prioritization outlook.
In addition, to better inform sustainment of NIH's main campus and capital planning, the study committee shall review comparable available facility condition methodologies and metrics of other federal agencies at an overall portfolio level, and provide recommendations in determining the minimum levels of funding required to sustain NIH's assets at an overall portfolio level.

Project Duration: 12 months
