Management InformationRobustness and data limitations
The indicator applies to Affordable Rent dwellings under the 2011-2015 Affordable Homes Programme. It excludes committed units from the previous programme. Based on provider offers and following negotiation and agreement of a framework contract, a rate for new HCA funding per Affordable Rent unit is agreed for each provider, in the majority of cases is paid 50% at start on site and 50% on completion (on a results basis). A provider's agreed rate of funding for each home completed will apply for the duration of the contract where delivery is largely in line with the assumptions in the initial framework contract. The HCA Investment Management System contains information provided by investment partners and so viewed as the most reliable source of data. From April 2012, the Mayor of London has had oversight of strategic housing, regeneration and economic development in London. This indicator refers only to grant payments by the HCA. The figure will include a small element of grant payments for social rent dwellings and a small proportion of acquisitions.Links to Further Information
