The LSU System Office of Property, Facilities and Administration is responsible for all LSU System capital planning, financing, design and construction at all university campuses, agricultural research and experiment stations, hospitals, and professional health care schools.

Specifically, the office prepares all property and facilities issues submitted to the LSU Board of Supervisors; manages the System’s annual capital outlay budget request process and prepares a system-wide, five-year plan for submission to the Louisiana board of Regents; supervises the leasing and property development functions within the LSU System, including leases of university property, leases of property by university units, research and technology parks, mineral leases, and similar transactions; and supervises all long-term capital financing by campuses, including bond issues, lease purchases and third-party agreements.

Over the last five years, the System Property and Facilities office has supervised a total of 315 construction projects worth more than $2 billion, ranging in scale from simple campus building repairs to construction of the $1.1 billion University Medical Center in New Orleans and the $60 million E. J. Ourso College of Business complex in Baton Rouge.
