Statement of Purpose / Fiscal Impact

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of this resolution is to provide authorization, pursuant to Idaho Code ยง33-3805A, to the State Board of Education to allow Lewis-Clark State College to proceed with the construction of a health sciences facility.



Fiscal Note

Funding for construction will come from the Permanent Building Fund. When construction is complete and the state assumes ownership, Lewis-Clark State College will request additional General Funds for occupancy costs which involve custodial, utility and other costs associated with operating general education space within the facility. Based on the current formula, these costs are estimated to be approximately $439,000.
