Downtown Complex Consulting Services
The SCO Consulting Services Section (CSS) is the owner/project manager for the North Carolina Department of Administration.
As such it oversees design and construction for the downtown complex.
Capital Project Management
The SCO Capital Project Management section provides services for state agencies, community colleges and universities undergoing projects which are more complex and costly than more typical projects. These projects involve unique factors, sometimes lacking in precedence, along with technical complexity which requires greater professional knowledge of complex capital projects and detailed technical procedures.
The section's services can include: consultation, evaluation & planning, design, design review & approval, project management and budget oversight including supervision of all staff levels, and more. The CPM section also maintains designer and contractor capital project cash flow data for projects in its purview, working with the Office of State Budget and Management to access State Capital and Infrastructure Fund (SCIF) grants when necessary.
Additionally, the section assists in planning the State Government Complex in downtown Raleigh.
