EIS Legislation and Guidelines

The External Infrastructure Subsidy Scheme (EIS) operates under the Queensland Government Education (Capital Assistance) Act 1993 and the Education (Capital Assistance) Regulation 2015 and the EIS Guidelines.

Important Information on the EIS Guidelines for all Approved Projects

Schools with approved projects should be aware that, as per the External Infrastructure Subsidy Scheme Guideline, p 5, Section 12.(1)(d),

'an application for payment must be received by QIS BGA within two years of the date of approval, or approval for the project will lapse, unless an extension is approved by the Minister'.

Schools with approved grants for projects unable to be completed, and therefore claimed, within the two year period of Ministerial approval should contact the QIS BGA Executive Officer for EIS PRIOR to the grant approval lapsing.
