The poor state of military accommodation

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know when the management and maintenance of MOD Married Quarters estate changed and which has resulted in the parlous state of both soldiers and families accommodation? Presumably the QMs office with a BIA no longer exists?
     
  2. Do you mean when did it switch from DHE to those fantastic chaps at modern housing?
     
  3. Yes, when was that?
     
  4. BIA Barrack Inventory Accountants as a name went long ago, they are now Accommodation Services Accountants in the Accomodation Services Unit.

    An ASA serves either or both unit & housing. If a unit ASA then will be dealing with the QMs. For SFA the ASA / ASU provide furniture but DE Ops Housing are responsible for the physical property (and sub-contract to MHS - MoDern Housing Solutions)

    I believe it went to DE in about the mid / late 80s, this has developed into DHE then DE Ops Housing.
     
  5. Excellent, thank you.
