The Department of Education (DE) and the Education Authority (EA) are issuing a joint call for applications for minor capital works up to the value of £500k. The call will open on Monday 16 October 2017 and close on Friday 17 November 2017. Guidance for submitting an application for minor works under the new call has been prepared (see link below) and is applicable to all school sectors. In an effort to modernise and streamline procedures, applications under the new call will be made online, via the school C2K system. Those schools without C2K should contact the EA for further advice at email@example.com.
There will be occassions when urgent/essential minor works applications will need to be lodged by schools outside of the call period. If this is the case, a hard copy application should be lodged directly with the DE for non-controlled schools or with the Planning and Development Office in the EA for controlled schools. Please note that only genuinely urgent/essential applications will be permitted outside of the call period. Please click on the link below to download the emergency application form. This is for non-controlled schools only. Controlled school requiring emergency works should contact the EA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
