Condition Improvement Funding (CIF) Consultancy

Condition Improvement Funding (CIF) Consultancy

At Eddisons, we have track record applying for Condition Improvement Funding (CIF) for all type of schools and academy sizes in the UK. Only in the past 12 months, our applications received over £15 million pounds.

Eddisons can provide Head Teachers, Business Managers and Finance Directors with free expert advice and detailed survey reports to ensure that their submission is robust and meets the criteria set out in the CIF guidelines.

Who can apply?

Academies and sixth-form colleges, free schools and multi-academy trusts (MAT) can apply for this type of funding. The CIF aims to keep the buildings’ safety and good condition. Academies asking for this fund, must not be part of a larger multi-academy trust, with at least five academies and more than 3,000 pupils.

What is the Funding For?

The CIF focuses in three main areas:

  • Condition Projects
  • Condition with Expansion Projects
  • Expansion Projects

Examples of projects can include

  • Roofing
  • Windows, doors and cladding
  • Safeguarding
  • Heating and pipework
  • Fire safety
  • Replacement modular buildings
  • Asbestos removal

Some of our clients tried applying for CIF in the past, but were not successful. See how we have helped some of these institutions to improve their buildings and renovate their schools.  

There are two new features in the 2019-2020 CIF application.

1)      The projects must be able to demonstrate that they can satisfy relevant performance requirements (quality and deliverability).

2)      The assessment criteria are giving more weighting to costs (value for money) of the overall project.

Eddisons can help improve your chances of CIF funding by preparing a winning bid, including substantial evidence and project outline and costs.

How can we help?

Our team of specialist surveyors works with you by conducting a full inspection and discussing the priorities that will be highlighted in your CIF application.
