April 2015- March 2016 is the last financial year that the Building Maintenance Indemnity Scheme (BMIS) will be running. As an inevitable consequence of this it has been necessary to have 2 phases of payments.
The phase 1 BMIS charge has now been generated for those schools signed up to the scheme, and is now due for payment. Phase 2 will be uploaded by no later than the end of September 2016. Phase 2 is necessary for the jobs reported during the 2015-2016 financial year (whilst BMIS is still running) which are completed and invoiced next financial year. As you will appreciate, certain works at schools are only able to be undertaken during school holidays which will delay completion/invoicing. In previous years this has not been an issue as BMIS has continued into the next financial year.
Please contact Joanne Long (contact details in the top right panel of this page) if you have any questions in relation to this.
Finance Officers/Bursars We have been asked to remove the full Phase 1 spreadsheet from this site. Please contact Property@bathnes.gov.uk for a copy of the spreadsheet with your schools charge if required.

When it comes to looking at SLAs I believe that your service is second-to-none, so I will definitely consider contacting you at some point in the future - School Business Manager
My school has been privileged to receive a very high level of regular, skilled, financial support visits which could easily feel intrusive, judgemental and even intimidating. This has never once been the case despite many changes of personnel. Without exception, visits have been professional yet convivial and supportive - Head Teacher
