CapProSoft

This Web-based software has two integrated modules: Capital Project Planning and Reporting Tool (CPPRT) allowing a district to track all aspects of a capital project on a multi-year basis. It generates all SED forms and enables a district to maintain accurate records, thus increasing fiscal accountability and ease of reporting. A second component, Facilities Assessment and Survey Tool (FAST), produces the school facilities report card and five-year plan. It maintains building data, allowing for reorganization and prioritization according to budget and facility needs.

CPPRT (Capital Projects Planning and Reporting Tool) enables a district to maintain accurate accounts and complete records of all transactions related to a capital project on a multi-year basis. It is unique as a tool for financial control because it addresses all aspects of a capital project in conjunction with reporting requirements stipulated by the State Education Department. It will generate SED forms and allow a project manager to check the project status at any time during the course of the project with a varierty of real-time reports.

FAST (Facilities Assessment and Survey Tool) meets NYS Comprehensive Public School Building and Safety Program reporting requirements. It produces the School Facilities Report Card in electronic format. It allows for interactive assessment of the physical plant between central office and assessment consultants in preparation of the 5-Year Plan. A district can update and maintain annual visual inspection forms for accurate and timely compliance, and allow for re-prioritization of tasks according to budgetary and facility needs.

Districts may surface a link to the CapProSoft software on their district website, if desired.
