Strategic Capital Steering Group

The Strategic Capital Steering Group (SCSG) establishes the strategy for investment in the University’s physical estate. It allocates funding to functional estate projects from the Strategic Capital Fund, usually with a value over £15m, and oversees the gateway approval process, obtaining approval from Finance Committee and Council for expenditure on strategic projects. It is also responsible for recommending to Finance Committee development proposals for functional estate by the joint venture, Oxford University Property Development.
