The ICIP deadlines (for FY 2014-2019) will be posted as soon as they are issued by the NM Department of Finance and Administration. Typically, the deadline is September 30th for local governments.
What is an ICIP?
A local Infrastructure Capital Improvement Plan (ICIP) establishes planning priorities for anticipated capital projects for a five year period and requires public input. The state-coordinated ICIP process encourages entities to plan for the development of capital improvements so that they do not find themselves in emergency situations but can plan, fund, and develop infrastructure at a pace that sustains their activities. Each proposed project includes an implementation plan and an estimate of expenses over the five years to assure each project's viability.
What is the Process for ICIP?
Typically, local governments will place the ICIP on meeting agendas during summer months and invite public input. During the planning process, the governmental entity should review its existing plans, inventory, and note needed changes or updates. Following the public input process, the governmental entity will prioritize its projects and determine those that are among the top five priorities for the coming year. Upon completion of the ICIP, the governmental entity will pass a resolution approving the plan and then submit it to the New Mexico Department of Finance & Administration, Local Government Division.
What is the SWNMCOG's Role in ICIP?
