Capital Planning at Harvard (CPATH) is an automated, web-based, and centralized system that collects and reports on the University’s annual five-year capital plan. CPATH provides the Schools/Units the opportunity to manage individual project information in their capital plan portfolio throughout the year.
CPATH collects capital project information, such as project level details and financial forecasts, coupled with robust reporting features. Additionally, CPATH eliminates the labor intensive processes for Schools/Units and Central Administration during capital plan season by providing a centralized system with enhanced data validations.
CPATH is integrated with the CAPS automated system and the data warehouse which eliminates double data-entry for common fields and provides accurate approval information. It is also linked to the general ledger to pull both project-to-date and fiscal year-to-date spending.
