Professional and design services

IPF Planning Design and Construction is primarily a self-supporting department responsible for all construction on campus.

  • IPF Professional Services fee is 3.5 percent of the total project budget to cover the costs of project management. This charge will be called “IPF Professional Services” on customer statements.
  • For projects under $1 million, IPF will be charging 6.5 percent of the total project budget to cover the costs of design services rendered. This charge will be called “Design Consult” on customer statements.
  • For projects over $1 million, IPF hires design architectural and engineering services and will charge actual costs to the project. The charge for design services will appear under the name of the consultant on the customer statements.

For further information on these services, see their definitions.

MSU's Office of Financial Analysis and Reporting has reviewed and recommended a rate structure for our services, and this will be re-evaluated on an annual basis.
