Guide to help councils deliver social housing
A guide to help councils deliver social housing through the Private Finance Initiative (PFI) was launched this week. The pack aims to simplify the process of agreeing contracts between councils and the private sector and will be available to councils invited onto the third round of the PFI programme, which starts in May. Housing minister Keith Hill said that using the pack, "the Government believes faster deals can be attained". Housing Private Finance Initiative (PFI) Procurement Pack is available from www.odpm.gov.uk.
