Living In Accommodation (LIA), a new Defence Housing Australia (DHA) online booking service for room allocations, has begun its roll-out in South Queensland.
This is the first stage of the new LIA arrangements which will be gradually rolled out across the remaining regions by mid-2014.
Managing Director at DHA, Peter Howman said the initial bases to receive this service were Enoggera, Oakley, Cabarlah, Canungra and RAAF Base Amberley.
“Defence members and employees at these Bases have been able to organise their LIA requirements through Online Services from the beginning of this month,” Mr Howman said.
He said the new Bookings and Allocation System managed the booking and the allocation of rooms for permanent, course and transit accommodation.
“By establishing the service in South Queensland first we will be able to see how effectively the new system works and how we can improve the service before rolling it out nationally,” Mr Howman said.
He said arrangements for regions yet to transition to the DHA Booking and Allocation System remained unchanged for their bookings, but for permanent requirements members should contact Toll Holdings or the relevant accommodation office. All course and transit requirements should be conducted at the accommodation office at the required location.
“Any current LIA bookings will have been automatically transferred to DHA on 1 September,” Mr Howman said.
