echelon was asked to perform options appraisals for Moat Housing, a housing group based in the south of England and Scottish provider Irvine Housing Association
echelon analysed every aspect of the service, from current cost base to how rigorous the performance management regime is and how well the service performs against the targets set. Our in-house IT, commercial and operational delivery expertise was coordinated to undertake the options appraisal and prepare report detailing our findings and associated recommendations for the future.
echelon has yet to perform an options appraisal for a client without its recommendations being implemented. More than 90% of organisations we work with on options appraisals retain us to support delivery of the outcomes. In the case of Moat and Irvine Housing Associations, echelon has been retained by both organisations to facilitate the procurement process resulting from the options appraisal.
“The engagement workshop facilitated by echelon was really refreshing and probably one of the most insightful and productive events I have been involved with in my two years at Moat” Maria Jacobs, Head of Neighbourhoods, Moat Homes
