The Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) has not reimbursed CarillionAmey for the purchase of any boilers. The replacement of 3,000 boilers has been directly funded by DIO under a capital works life cycle replacement programme and are scheduled for replacement in Service Family Accommodation (SFA) by March 2017. Approximately 1,000 boilers have already been replaced under this programme.

This is in addition to approximately 1,000 boilers being replaced by CarillionAmey as part of the National Housing Prime contract. Boiler replacement is a core service under this contract and thus will be paid for under the normal contractual arrangements.

By the end of Financial Year 2016-2017 approximately 5,585 SFA boilers will have been replaced in total under the above works.

In line with previous years, DIO is monitoring closely the heating situation within SFA during the winter months to ensure any potential problems are identified and resolved quickly.
