The Capital and Revenue Alignment Register (CRAR) is a tool to inform decision-making associated with both capital and revenue commitments and opportunities relevant to the whole of the supported housing sector. It forms part of our Housing Toolkit which is designed to improve flows of information to support commissioning.
The Register is a list of specific projects with defined timescales which have both revenue and capital implications, where revenue has been identified, and which have been prioritised using consistent criteria. The Register is used by the City Council to:
The register contains a number of evidenced priorities. Download the CRAR priority list (pdf, 12KB).
Only designated commissioners can register projects. Providers or other stakeholders wishing to raise an issue or project will need to contact one of the commissioners below.
A number of statutory organisations are 'commissioners' for the purposes of the CRAR and other parts of our Housing Toolkit. The organisations are:
Prioritisation between registered projects is managed by a core group of commissioners through the Capital & Revenue Alignment Group. The group meets monthly to review the Register. New projects are placed onto the Register by the group in line with the following principles:
The group will also consider these factors in prioritising the Register:
Commissioners registering revenue-driven projects should confirm the level of revenue funding they are committing to the project and over what timescale, and should indicate any particular requirements relating to the required capital development (number and size of properties; proximity to amenities etc.) If the registering officer has information about the capital requirements of the project, these should also be submitted. Where no capital estimate is available, the core group will agree an approximate capital cost.
Projects can be registered by completing a Project Registration Form and emailing it to email@example.com
