Chapter 1: The Capital Outlay Budget Process
The Capital Outlay Budget Process
The Capital Outlay Budget Process
Introduction to Capital Outlay
What qualifies as a “Capital Outlay” project?
According to RS 39:2(9), “Capital outlays” mean expenditures for acquiring lands, buildings,
equipment, or other permanent properties, or for their preservation or development or permanent
improvement.
The Louisiana Administrative Code (LAC) gives examples of projects that qualify for inclusion
in the capital outlay bill as:
1. Land acquisition
2. Site development and improvement
3. Additions or expansions to existing facilities
4. Acquisition or construction of buildings or other structures
5. Major repair or renovation of existing facilities (note: “major repair” is not defined)
6. Installation, extension or replacement or utility systems or major building components
7. Roof replacement
8. Asbestos abatement
9. Fixed equipment which is connected to building utility systems
10. Initial equipment and furnishings for new buildings. Depending on the useful life of
equipment and furnishings, it may be decided to fund these through alternate sources.
LAC also gives examples of what should not be included in capital outlay requests:
1. Minor repair or renovation projects, such as painting, flooring, etc.
2. Minor roof repairs which do not extend the useful life of the roof
3. Moveable equipment and furnishings, except such associated with new buildings
4. Vehicles of any type
5. Materials and supplies
6. Repair or renovation of minor building components, such as plumbing fixtures, locks, etc.
7. Routine maintenance of existing equipment
LAC says that it is “necessary to limit capital outlay projects which do not have a cash source of
funding to those which have an anticipated useful life of 20 years or more and a value or cost of
at least $50,000.”
1-1
A Capital Outlay project must be “permanent” and “major”
 “Permanent” means that the project has an OSRAP Useful Life of at least ten years.
 “Major” means that the project:
o Is complex in nature, requiring the use of and coordination between multiple trades; or
o Requires, by statute, the services of a professional architect, engineer or landscape
architect; and
o Has a cost greater than $50,000
How are Capital Outlay projects funded?
During each annual legislative session, capital outlay projects receive appropriations in the
Capital Outlay Bill (House Bill 2). Once the Bill is enacted and becomes the Capital Outlay Act,
funding is dependent on the means of finance shown for the project. State General Fund (Direct) is
cash and is considered “funded” at the time that the Bill is enacted. General Obligation Bond
appropriations, however, must receive a line of credit from the State Bond Commission to be
considered “funded.” It is important to remember to continue to request any unfunded amount
needed for your project in subsequent years. This is how agencies communicate that additional
funding is needed for the project.
Appropriations authorize General Obligation Bond funding. The Line of Credit that an
appropriation receives is the actual funding.
It is also important to remember that a cash line of credit provides cash to your project that can be
spent for project completion, even if the “bonds have not been sold.” Although General Obligation
Bonds are sold to provide the cash for Capital Outlay projects, it is not necessary for the bonds to
have been sold for a specific project in order for that project to proceed.
Bond appropriations remain in the Act until the bonds have been sold. There may be Priority 1
appropriations in the Act for projects that are nearing completion. This is not new funding.
Priority 1 appropriations are always reauthorizations of prior funding. These amounts were shown
in the previous year’s Act as Priority 5, Priority 2, or even as Priority 1. Therefore, it is possible
that a project remains in the Act even after completion. Further, it is important to understand the
Priority system for general obligation bonds to be able to interpret the appropriations in the Act.

How is Capital Outlay funding requested?
Agencies complete the request form in the eCORTS system hosted at http://doa.la.gov/ecorts .
Requests should provide the best possible information regarding the project’s scope, cost and
justification. Capital Outlay funding is subject to tremendous competition, so it is important to
build the best case for why your project should be funded instead of another project that is equally
important to someone else. If you need to submit additional information that cannot be added to
the eCORTS form, contact the Capital Outlay staff at 225-342-0823 or capitaloutlay@la.gov .
What happens after a Capital Outlay request is submitted?
Analysts within the Capital Outlay section review the request to be sure it includes all statutorily
required information. They also review the request for feasibility. If the analyst believes that
additional information is needed to strengthen the request, he or she contacts the requesting agency
as a courtesy. Agencies are encouraged to quickly and fully respond to such messages, in order to
potentially address concerns. It is important to remember that if the request does not include all
statutorily required information, or if it is determined to be “not feasible,” then the project cannot
be included in the Capital Outlay Act. Any appropriations for that project will be deemed “null.”

Key Points about the Capital Outlay Process
The Capital Outlay Budget process is governed by Statute and is
divided into three distinct phases: development, enactment, and
execution.
Requirements and deadlines are not defined by Facility Planning
and Control. They are governed by the Louisiana Constitution
and the Louisiana Revised Statutes. Make sure that you
comply with all requirements and guidelines.
Competition for the limited funds available is tremendous.
You need to submit the most competitive request that you
can. This means clearly defining your project and providing
as much supporting information as possible.
Projects can be funded through many sources: State General Fund
(Direct), General Obligation Bonds, Inter-Agency Transfer,
Revenue Bonds, Re-appropriated Cash. General Obligation Bond
projects are not considered "funded" until Lines of Credit have
been issued. Projects must be "funded" before state funds are
available for use. Unfunded projects from the Capital Outlay
Act will not automatically be reconsidered.
This is an extended process, not suitable for all projects. In
most cases, it will take a year or more from the initial submission
of a capital outlay request to actually receive funds.
