The Department has provided the information requested in the attached table, showing a regional breakdown of Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) for the last five years. However, please note that the information for CIF 2016-17 onwards does not include the funding amounts.

Whilst the Department intends to publish funding information for transparency, accurate amounts for grants funded are not known until the work is complete and therefore the Department is unable to disclose the total funding amount for a CIF round until all the projects in that round are complete.

To release the funding amounts applicants bid to CIF for, while procurement or construction works are ongoing, would hamper the ability of schools and sixth-form colleges to obtain value for money for the public purse from their contractors. It is the Department’s intention to release the individual project funding amounts for all CIF rounds and, to date, the Department has published the funding from 2015-16.
