Multi Academy Trusts may find themselves with myriad issues to deal with if they have PFI schools within their Trust, or if they are about to have a PFI school join their Trust.

However, as a Trust you still have leverage to:

  • Ensure value for money
  • Identify and manage exposure to risk
  • Improve the management of the contract to the benefit of the schools and the Trust
  • Identify and deliver initiatives that reduce costs
