Among the statutory responsibilities of the California Postsecondary Education Commission is the review of proposals for new campuses and off-campus centers of the State's public higher education services, the need for careful review of these proposals has never been more apparent.

To that end, the Commission has revised its guidelines for reviewing these proposals in order to streamline and clarify the review and approval process. Although the Commission revised these guidelines most recently in 1990, growing demand for approval review by the community colleges combined with severe staff reductions at both the Commission and the Department of Finance have made this 1992 revision necessary.

The Commission adopted these new guidelines at its meeting of August 24, 1992, on recommendation of its Fiscal Policy and Analysis Committee, as part of its adoption of A Framework for Statewide Facilities Planning (Commission Report 92-17), In that document, the Commission announced creation of a permanent Capital Outlay Planning Advisory Committee that will involve all four of California's systems of higher education and various State regulatory and control agencies in a collaborative effort designed to use scarce resources in the most effective manner. Also in that document, the Commission asked each system of higher education to submit to it a 15-year long-range plan every five years beginning in 1994, so that the Commission may submit a total State 15-year plan to the Governor and Legislature every five years beginning in 1995.
