Bernalillo County has a continuous, six-year Capital Improvement Plan which provides a link between the needs and visions of the public and the county’s capital expenditure budgets.

The Bernalillo Board of County Commissioners on May 10, 2016 approved a resolution affecting the county's non-profit capital outlay process.

Non-profit organizations intending to pursue capital outlay funding in the 2018 New Mexico State Legislative Session, that is to be accepted and administered by Bernalillo County, must complete the required Capital Outlay Request Form and submit by July 5, 2017, 5:00 p.m. MST to the Office of the County Manager.

In addition, the attached video and PowerPoint presentation are provided to guide and assist organizations in the pursuit of State of New Mexico capital outlay funding. It is highly encouraged these presentations be viewed as they contain valuable information regarding the process of seeking capital outlay funding.

 

 


Bernalillo County’s Capital Improvement Program will be hosting district informational meetings in early spring of 2018 to inform the public about the 2018-2024 Capital Improvement Plan and 2018 General Obligation bond questions that will be on the November 2018 ballot. 

For more information, please visit our CIP webpage.

Public submittals for the 2018 GO Bond cycle end May 11, 2018.

3. Design/Construction

The third portion of the Capital Improvement Program continuum is the design and construction of specific facilities.

When a capital project has secured sufficient funding through various local, state or federal funding sources, facility or infrastructure design and construction is managed and implemented differently depending on the type of facility.

  1. The Public Works Division has engineers in its Technical Services Department who manage the design and construction of road, utility, and storm drainage projects. Some of these projects are designed and managed in-house by licensed civil engineers, while others are designed by hired consultants and managed by the Technical Services Department. 
  2. The Public Safety Division uses staff from Public Works’ Fleet and Facilities Management Department to manage the design and construction of its capital projects, such as fire stations and sheriff substations.
  3. The Parks and Recreation Department has planners and project managers to oversee the design work of hired landscape architects and architects for recreational facilities. Sometimes, licensed engineers are hired and managed by Parks and Recreation for smaller projects where an engineering solution is needed for a recreation facility.

The construction of smaller capital projects that are “horizontal” (e.g. parks) are generally managed by Parks and Recreation staff, while larger capital construction projects that are “vertical” (e.g. a gym, a community center) are managed by the Public Works Division’s Fleet and Facilities Management Department.
 
In virtually all construction projects, competitive bids are solicited from private contractors who do the work.
