On the Construction of Cost Control System for Infrastructure Projects in Colleges and Universities

At this stage, the rapid development of China's higher education and the in-depth advancement of education system reform have put forward higher requirements for campus capital construction. In this context, how to make full use of the limited infrastructure funds to meet the needs of the majority of teachers and students for campus infrastructure is an issue that is widely concerned in the field of college and university capital construction management at present. This paper reinterprets the goal of cost control from the perspective of college capital management, that is, to maximize the cost-effectiveness of the project life cycle by constructing a cost control system in the process of infrastructure management. The article combined with the actual situation of university infrastructure management, in-depth analysis of the project implementation process of cost control commonly faced by the difficulties and problems, by summarizing the years of experience in infrastructure work, from the infrastructure project feasibility study report preparation, program and construction drawing design, bidding management, construction management, settlement audit and so on several aspects of the cost control of the specific measures listed one by one. After analyzing and researching, it is pointed out that the cost control of university infrastructure projects is carried out throughout the whole process of project construction, which is a forward-looking, dynamic and systematic management activity, and it requires active communication and close cooperation among all the participants to form a complete management system in order to realize the ultimate goal of cost control.
