The CHP Direct Dealing Policy (Policy) allows registered CHPs to bring proposals directly to LAHC that involve their own land or LAHC-owned land, in order to build, renew and grow social and affordable housing.
LAHC will work with CHPs to develop and assess proposals in line with the LAHC Direct Dealing Assessment Framework. The process is outlined below.
How to submit an application
- Pre-submission discussions
- Submit Stage 1 Proposal
- Stage 1 Assessment and notification of outcome
- Stage 2 Assessment and notification of outcome
- Approvals and contract award
1. Pre-submission discussions
CHPs are encouraged to contact LAHC to organise a pre-submission discussion. This will be an informal discussion to explore whether the proposal is likely to meet the criteria for direct dealing under the Policy, and to discuss the process if needed.
Before arranging a discussion or making an enquiry, please consider the CHP Direct Dealing Policy (PDF, 471.21 KB), complete a CHP Direct Dealing Pre-Submission Form (DOCX, 169.82 KB) and submit the form via the LAHC contact us webpage.
2. Submit a Proposal
To submit a proposal under the Policy, CHPs should complete and submit a Stage 1 Proposal Form (DOCX, 177.01 KB). The proposal is to include:
- the proposal value
- title, executive summary and details of the proposal
- a brief description of the CHP’s capability and capacity to deliver the proposal
- a brief description of how the proposal presents value for money for LAHC
- a brief description of how risk is mitigated in the proposal.
Please email the Stage 1 Proposal Form and any attachments to LAHCPartnerships_Transactions@facs.nsw.gov.au.
3. Stage 1 Assessment and notification of outcome
LAHC will consider the proposal and determine whether the justification and eligibility criteria have been met, and whether it aligns with LAHC’s policy and strategic objectives. LAHC will notify the CHP of the outcome.
Where a proposal passes the Stage 1 Assessment, LAHC will enter into negotiations with the CHP to negotiate the terms of the proposal.
5. Stage 2 Assessment and notification of outcome
Once the negotiated proposal is finalised, LAHC will undertake a Stage 2 Assessment in accordance with the Policy and will notify the CHP of the outcome.
6. Approvals and contract award
Where a proposal passes the Stage 2 Assessment, LAHC and the CHP will arrange for their respective internal approvals and sign the relevant contract. LAHC will publish details of successful proposals on the LAHC website.
