Does anyone have any text they can share with me from any reports/business cases that summarises the financal case for resourcing of data cleansing in order to increase NHB revenue?
I know it sounds like we are a bit late to the party, but we obtained a significant amount of capital funding for empty property work from the first NHB windfall, so never really had to make the case in order to obtain funding for following years. With this year possibly being the last for NHB in its current format, and our figures on the rise again, we are taking a report to Executive that will make the case for additional resources to keep the numbers low and increase NHB revenue.
If you have anything that quantifies the benefits in terms of amount of NHB raised for each unit of empty accomodation borught back in to use I would be interested to hear from you. Doesn't need to be a lot of text or detail, just a short summary would do nicely.
