The AHO has recently updated its Construction, New Acquisition and Repairs & Maintenance Standards.
The intent of the Standards is to set out the minimum AHO requirements (taking into account budget conditions) for a dwelling to be constructed, purchased or receive repairs and maintenance (R&M).
The AHO Standards provide clarity and clear direction on what ‘works’ can and cannot be done.
- The AHO will take into consideration however, any requests from AHCPs in regards to deleting items from the identified works.
- The AHO also has a duty to ACHPs to reduce future maintenance liabilities.
- The AHO has reviewed the Standards with this in mind and is committed to achieving value for money which will maximise its capacity to acquire new housing and carry out repairs and maintenance.
These measures will enable as many Aboriginal families and community members as possible to be housed in a safe and well maintained community dwelling.
