Description: On 24 May, the Secretary of State confirmed that the Priority School Building Programme (PSBP) would rebuild, or meet the condition needs of 261 schools. The Priority School Building Programme will address the needs of 46 schools through private finance, with the remaining projects being funded through capital grant. To ensure value for money for the public sector, the 261 schools have been grouped together in “batches” to make projects that will be commercially attractive and drive strong competition. Four specific objectives have been agreed • to prioritise schools (primary/secondary/sixth form) for rebuilding; • to build more for less; • to improve the future private finance model drawing on learning and experience from recent Building Schools for the Future (BSF) PFI deals, the HM Treasury review of operational PFI contracts, and Public Accounts Committee recommendations in response to the National Audit Office report; and • to use a centralised procurement model for the programme in order to drive efficiencies in procurement time and ensure that a quality solution is obtained at the lowest cost.
