The Sustainable Built Environment National Research Centre (SBEnrc) project:Rethinking Social Housing: Effective, Efficient, Equitable is developing the E6 Strategic Evaluation Framework for social housing delivery that can be used by policy makers to help determine the most cost-effective program delivery options. This seed project is investigating the housing and tenant outcomes of different delivery mechanisms, as well as indirect non-housing outcomes that arise from different mechanisms. This is being explored through the lens of productivity, in terms of an array of benefits including tenant, macro-economic, fiscal and non-economic perspectives. This is a broad-based approach with a focus on practical outcomes which can potentially contribute to outcomes-based contracts against which performance can be effectively validated.
