Abstract Capital Planning Graphic
In a rapidly changing environment, finance teams need to devote more time and energy to thinking about the future. As resources become scarce and uncertainty increases, business officers are increasingly exploring public-private partnerships as alternative financial structures to fund capital projects. The University of Idaho implemented a thoughtful financial planning approach to analyze a potential asset monetization while considering the impacts of cost proposals, funding sources, and alternative accounting treatments. By considering alternative financial models and various operational scenarios, the finance team provided key insights to stakeholders throughout the decision-making process.
This webcast will address how the finance team at the University of Idaho developed the team and tools necessary to provide valuable decision support as their potential public-private partnership project evolved. The panel will share lessons learned and common pitfalls in evaluating similar projects, with special emphasis on how the finance team can increase confidence in capital planning decisions. Join us to learn how building the right team and creating a process that provides timely and thoughtful analysis can increase confidence in evaluating alternative financing structures.
