Project Management Core Service Mission Statement: Plan, design and construct facilities and associated infrastructure utilizing methods and procedures that deliver the best value and energy efficiency.
Project Management manages sales tax projects, capital improvement projects, spacial and long-range planning, and the Facilities' capital maintenance plan.
Sales Tax Projects
The 1% local option sales tax is used to fund a variety of projects. Charlotte County and its residents have benefitted from five prior 1% local option sales tax programs, starting in 1994. The current local option tax is in its final year and on November 3, 2020, voters will have the opportunity to extend the 1% local option sales tax for six more years from 2021 to 2026.
Sales tax, including the 1% local option sales tax, is paid by all: not just residents, but tourists and visitors. The 1% local option sales tax is one cent per each one dollar spent and is therefore sometimes referred to as the One Cent Sales Tax.
Capital Improvement Program (CIP)
The Capital Improvement Program provides a detailed view of the County's capital improvement budgeting and planning process for Fiscal Year 2020, and the six year CIP period for projects $100,000 and greater. Project Managers regularly update the project status as phases progress.
The Project Management division is responsible for the long-range planning for the County's facilities. The Facilities Manager interacts with county departments documenting their vision. The County's 20-year plan was created utilizing the visions and initial project scope. The 20-year capital needs assessment is reviewed bi-annually by staff and presented to the Board of County Commissioners.
Capital Maintenance Plan (CMP)
County buildings were evaluated though a Facility Condition Assessment determining condition, remedial actions and priorities, and estimated remediation costs. A Construction Manager (CM) was hired through the Request for Proposal process to help manage the capital maintenance needs determined through the assessment. The CM handles planning, design, and repair. Examples of capital maintenance repairs may include replacing windows, repairing pavement, correcting duct work, replacing electrical panels, and much more.
Facilities utilizes different delivery methods for county construction. All projects follow a process. Project design for buildings under $2 million utilize the process of Request for Letters of Interest from the professional library of consultants. Larger projects utilize the longer process called Request for Proposal. Construction is delivered by either Hard Bid or Construction Manager.
