Capital Funded Projects 

Capital projects may be funded from state-issued bond proceeds or other current revenue sources (e.g. appropriations, executive authorizations or restricted accounts). Projects are considered capital and must be authorized in a capital budget, if State bond proceeds are used and the total project is valued at $100,000 or more or current revenues are used and the total project is valued at more than $300,000.
