A Division of Campus Operations

Project Management

The Office of Design and Construction Management (DCM) has been assigned by The University of Kansas administration and the Kansas Secretary of Administration the responsibility for oversight of all design and construction projects under management authority of the Lawrence campus. All KU departments and affiliates are required to submit project requests for DCM to provide feasibility studies, design services or consultant oversight, code compliance, construction management and required approvals for campus development projects.

The DCM Project Management Manual illustrates our commitment to providing excellence in project delivery to our University clients. The manual has been developed in collaboration with over 50 entities within the KU community and will serve as a communication tool to provide a better understanding of the project delivery process and the services that the Office of Design and Construction Management provides. The manual will also serve as a guide for DCM’s Project Managers (PM) to deliver projects with systematic best practice policies and procedures.
