On November 8 2013, Premier Campbell Newman and Education, Training and Employment Minister, John-Paul Langbroek visited Mitchelton State School to announce the second round of funding allocations as part of the Advancing our Schools Maintenance (AoSM) initiative. This initiative achieved excellent outcomes for schools in 2012-13, and in 2013-14 the AoSM allocations are designed to ensure that this momentum continues. Please see School Maintenance allocations 203K for details.
To provide additional funds to address school planned maintenance over the 2012-13 and 2013-14 financial years with the objective to reduce the pre-existing maintenance backlog in state schools.
AoSM funds are expended on planned maintenance tasks derived from school Maintenance Assessment Reports (MAR), commencing with projects identified in 2011-12 reports.
School principals and their communities have the choice to continue to use Building and Asset Services (formerly known as QBuild) to deliver all maintenance services or source local contractors to deliver Planned and Routine Breakdown maintenance via a Direct to Market delivery option.
Direct to Market schools also receive a Routine Breakdown maintenance allocation funded from the annual maintenance budget.
Schools choosing Direct to Market delivery will be allocated funds directly to their bank account.
Direct to Market schools are required to report on maintenance expenditure funded by Advancing our Schools Maintenance through OneSchool.
