Highland RFCA is responsible for nearly 50 Reserve units and more than 200 Cadet units located on more than 130 sites across the Highlands and Islands. The Estates head office in Dundee is supported by area offices in Inverness, Aberdeen and Dumbarton.

The Association is currently engaged in a change programme to incorporate the Hard Facilities Management of the RFCA estate into the Future Defence Infrastructure System (FDIS).

FDIS has been running on the Regular estate for over two years now. Mitie is the Regional Prime Contractor in Scotland. The switchover date for all RFCAs is 1 August 2024, with full operating capability to be achieved by 1 February 2025. Read more about the FDIS plans.

The HRFCA Estates Team will be responsible for assuring the work of Mitie across the areas of fault reporting, inspections and tests, repairs, condition surveys, and checking Value for Money.

HRFCA will also remain responsible for:

  • Managing title deeds, leases and rentals for the Volunteer Estate.
  • Working with the single Services and Cadet organisations to identify future estate priorities.
  • Commissioning new works and betterment projects on the Cadet estate funded by rate rebate.
  • Soft Facilities Management.
