Ingkerreke Outstations Resource Services (IORS) receives funding for housing maintenance which is designed to cover the cost of carrying out repairs to houses on outstations with the aim of maintaining every house at a standard that is safe, healthy and habitable. IORS' housing team decides how this funding is allocated by prioritising repairs as requiring immediate, urgent or planned attention. The priorities follow the guidelines set out in the funding agreement, examples of which are:
Electrical danger, gas leaks, significant water loss, severe sewage overflow
Loss of power, smoke alarm repair, water or sewage leaks
Preventative and cyclical maintenance
By planning, prioritising and deploying cross-functional trade teams, IORS is able to keep costs to a minimum for the benefit of outstation residents.
Housing Services also collects outstation service fees and accounts for how those funds are spent. For additional information about Housing Services, please contact our office on 08 8950 2200.
