General Description of Requirement
The City of Vancouver (the “City”) is undergoing an exercise to establish an Affordable Housing Endowment Fund (Vancouver Affordable Housing Endowment Fund or “VAHEF”) comprised of over 200 non-market housing assets with an assessed value of approximately $2 billion. The majority of these assets, including land, buildings, and Air Space Parcels, are leased to non-profit and co-op housing operators. VAHEF is aimed to optimize the long term viability and effectiveness of affordable non-market housing in Vancouver through a portfolio approach.
The City is seeking an external consultant to perform a review of similar public organizations focused on affordable housing in order to identify: (1) leading practices and key considerations, (2) evaluate the City’s current governance and operating model(s) against leading practices, and (3) develop recommended governance and operating model options and/or changes to existing model(s) in order for the City to effectively execute VAHEF’s strategy.
In order to establish VAHEF, an understanding of options and key considerations for optimal governance and operating model(s) in the City of Vancouver context will be required. The proponent will be performing work in alignment with this requirement. This work will form part of a larger project to establish the Vancouver Affordable Housing Endowment Fund.
