 The Infrastructure & Development Sub - Committee of the Old Achimotan Association Executive Committee is mandated to liaise with Achimota School Administration to provide oversight and advisory services for all facility developments in Achimota School.

The oversight services are designed to cover the following;

-        Preliminary Site Survey and assessment

-        Development of a project brief and scope of works / services

-        Preliminary budget

-        Construction supervision

The Committee assists Year Groups and Akoras with costing, co-ordinating, implementing and monitoring of projects. Year Groups (irrespective of their celebrations) looking to adopt a project, should initially contact the OAA Secretariat for a list of the School's Projects. This list is updated periodically in consultation with the Headmistress.

By doing this, duplication of effort is eliminated and the projects are better coordinated. Year Groups are encouraged to select projects which are financially viable to them so that the project is completed on time. Resource mobilisation must begin well in advance to enable raise enough funds for execution.

For projects which are more capital intensive, Year Groups are encouraged to team up with other Year Groups to raise funds and execute. Team effort is guaranteed to make the financial burden lighter.

50th Anniversary Project

Ideally projects adopted by 50th Anniversary celebrants should be completed by the Founders' Day they are hosting to enable them hand it over at the climax of their celebrations.

25th Anniversary Project

The 25th Anniversary celebrants, should complete their project by Speech Day of the same year they host the Bonfire Night.

In order to do this Year Groups must plan and raise funds well in advance of their celebrations to ensure that project that they start  gets completed.

After two years of inactivity, suspended projects will revert back to the list for any other Year Group to revive and complete.

If no year group shows any interest in a suspended project and the initiating year group shows interest, it will be re-allocated to the group upon satisfactory proof of availability of resources to complete.
