Capital Investment Plan (CIP) Budget

Orange County's Capital Investment Plan (CIP) serves as a annual planning tool to forecast long-range future capital needs for both school districts and the County. This plan examines infrastructure and equipment needs, provides a planning schedule and identifies available financing options for the next five years. The CIP also provides a link between the County's strategic plans and its annual budget; the first year of the CIP's budget is adopted in June, in conjunction with the operating budget.

The CIP budget contains the following sections:

  • County capital project budgets and narratives
  • School systems' project budgets and narratives (if available)
  • Supplemental materials (e.g. presentations)
