|Level of compliance||Main audience||Other|
The 10 Year Property Plan (10YPP) sets a 10-year schedule of school property maintenance and modernisation. 10YPP consultants are responsible for preparing the 10YPP with schools.
The purpose of a 10YPP is to maximise student learning outcomes through the planned provision of quality learning environments within available budgets. That is, schools that are safe, functional, efficient and enduring.
- health and safety work that ensures the health and safety of building and site occupants
- essential infrastructure works that ensure the integrity and structure of the site and buildings
- plans for
- maintenance work
- modernising learning spaces
- requests additional capital funding, if needed. For example, additional 5YA funding to cover the cost of a new boiler system.
A 10YPP ensures that school buildings are maintained and meet the learning and teaching needs of the school.
Becoming a 10YPP consultant
A 10YPP must be prepared by a Ministry trained 10YPP consultant.
To become a 10YPP consultant you must work for an organisation on the 10YPP Consultant Panel and complete the Ministry’s compulsory training.
The Ministry selects 10YPP consultants for schools from the panel through a secondary tender process.
Tendering for bundles
Each year the Ministry will tender small bundles of 3-8 schools whose 10YPP is due and offer those bundles by closed tender to suppliers on the 10YPP Consultants Panel. The Ministry will evaluate the tenders based on a set evaluation criteria and will determine the most appropriate “packages” of work, in a way that is practical, efficient and manageable, to award to consultants based on a number of factors.
Preparing a 10YPP
Following your appointment as a 10YPP consultant you can begin 10YPP preparation.
