Landlords fail to comply
...but there is a better way
Recently, several landlords were downgraded by the regulator for failing to follow value for money guidelines, and not taking into account key performance data in their value for money self-assessments. The message is clear in that data is key to being able to evidence compliance with the regulatory framework and also other frameworks such as the NHF code of governance. For the VFM statement, the underlying data needs to be clear, relevant and a link established to the activities of the organisation with appropriate targets and where relevant benchmark data being included. There is some good practice that we would like to share around this topic by showcasing a long standing Clearview customer that has been able to stand up to external scrutiny and come through with flying colours on many occasions.
Rooftop Housing Group have been a Clearview customer since 2007 and their use of the Clearview software to provide evidence to external bodies has been highlighted on a number of occasions throughout their time as a customer. First achieving a three star and excellent outcome from the old Audit Commission and more recently achieving Gold status from Investors in people. They’ve also won numerous awards, including the Housing Excellence 2014 – small social landlord of the year and Sunday Times 100 Best not for profit organisations 2015.
We are highlighting their excellent use of the Clearview performance management system in this article as an illustration of good practice. To this end, we have three case studies to share and hopefully you will find of interest.
