Executive summary

Purpose

1.   This document sets out the arrangements for an additional allocation of learning and teaching capital for higher education institutions (HEIs) for 2006 to 2008. It also invites HEIs to submit proposals for use of these capital grants.

Key points

2.   We have allocated 95 million of learning and teaching capital grant to English HEIs.

3.   We will distribute the funding by formula. Funding allocations are conditional on us receiving a satisfactory proposal from the institution on how it is to be used. The conditional allocations are at Annex A.

4.   The additional capital grants will be available to HEIs from July 2006 (see paragraph 30).

5.   The allocations incorporate capital allocations to HEIs that have student numbers for franchised programmes. They also include student numbers allocated to further education colleges (FECs) that are members of HEFCE-recognised funding consortia led by an HEI.

6.   Directly-funded FECs will receive an allocation of capital funding via a separate announcement, to be issued by HEFCE later this summer.

Action required

7.   HEIs should submit their proposals electronically by Tuesday 31 October 2006. Details of how to access the new application system and helpdesk will be e-mailed to existing capital contacts shortly.
