Investing in Capital Works at Schools

Updated: Aug 1, 2023

In 2017, Telstra agreed to set up a CNA Installation Works and Service Fund (IWSF) to be held by Telstra. The fund is specifically intended to cover installation and relocation works, including associated professional services costs where they arise. The 2016–17 IWSF,

available to CNA, was $1.284 million of which $884,000 had been used to provide installation works and other associated services. A further $440,000 had also been allocated for services to remote schools in Western Australia.

In 2018–19 a further $673,000 was allocated to the fund. By the end of June 2019, $1.62 million had been utilised to assist schools and dioceses. This included $1.42 million across thirteen new schools and $141,000 for relocations at fourteen schools, two diocesan offices

and a Queensland data centre. Over the 2019–2020 financial year, a further $110,000 was spent across projects in the Adelaide, Ballarat, Melbourne, Parramatta and Sale dioceses.

After careful analysis of the minimum spend of all Participants for the period of the contract (i.e. the Telstra Business Services Agreement), an additional allocation of approximately $2 million was deposited into the fund in June 2020. Since that time there has been more than $100,000 in expenditure approved.
