Process and Timeline

SAHF Phase 2 will utilise a two stage procurement process with an Expression of Interest (EOI) followed by a Request for Proposal (RfP) from applicants short-listed from the EOI process.

SAHF Phase 1 was the first transaction of its kind in Australia and we have listened to feedback from participants about the need to improve SAHF Phase 2. We are committed to working with participants in SAHF Phase 2 to refine the tender process and reduce the complexity and costs involved in putting forward innovative ideas that will continue to improve social and affordable housing, particularly for regional NSW.

Our commitment is reflected in an up-front market engagement strategy that will:

  • Inform: provide clear information on the SAHF through this website and face to face meetings with the SAHF team
  • Facilitate: support for finding partners and getting ready for the tender through peak and industry organisations
  • Respond: seek detailed ideas on improving SAHF Phase 2 tender and tender process
