04th April 2017
The Department for Education (DfE) announced its allocation of Condition Improvement Fund 2017-2018 yesterday. It has been yet another successful year of CIF bids for Barker Associates with a fantastic £20 million funding won for our academy clients.
Over 50 of our submissions have been granted funding. Successful projects range from £50,000 refurbishment projects to £5.8 million expansion projects.
The DfE received requests for more than £1.3 billion for over 3800 projects to this year’s round. A total of £466 million for 1435 projects across 1184 academies and sixth-form colleges has been allocated.
It is great to note that over 4% of the total allocation has been won by Barker Associates reflecting the thoroughness of our submissions. We are delighted with the outcomes for our clients and look forward to developing their projects in due course.
The limited funding available and the large number of applications received means that unfortunately not all projects were successful. Academies will be able to Appeal the decision from 24th April 2017 onwards.
Barker Associates will be able to support those academies looking to appeal their CIF bids. For more information contact us on email@example.com or call 01279 647111.
