Department of Finance Building Management and Works (BMW) Data Warehouse 2018-19 data as at 24 June 2019. Includes expenditures funded by schools where works were arranged by BMW. 

*              Banksia Hill Detention Centre is managed by the Department of Justice and not the Department of Education. Wirrabirra Education Support Centre is included with Wirrabirra Primary School.

2)         Funding is managed centrally and is allocated to address needs in schools as they arise.  Schools may elect to manage their own faults and breakdowns up to a maximum of $5000 per event and receive an allocation from the central maintenance account. Schools may also use part of their one-line budget to undertake maintenance and minor works projects.
