Institutional Arrangements for School Building. Programme on Educational Building 6.
Despite the diversity of national circumstances, all countries have the common aim of providing the right kind of school buildings in the right place, at the right time, and at the right cost. The objective of the present study is to establish the best institutional means for achieving this aim and, insofar as there are common patterns between countries for such institutional arrangements, to try to identify them. The institutional arrangements for school building relate essentially to the total period from the initiation of a project (that is, as soon as the need for a school and its type and size have been determined) through completion of the building and its subsequent maintenance and evaluation. The processes involved in this must, moreover, be viewed at all times in the wider context of forward planning of school building programs if implementation is to be effective and resources properly used. Indeed, the framing of school networks and of forward capital programs to meet educational needs are key factors in the whole matter. (Author/IRT)
