BCNPHA has partnered with BC Housing to build the capacity of the non-profit housing sector around the procurement of appropriate technology to enhance the efficiency and sustainability of affordable housing. This guide comprises one of a range of supports being provided through this partnership. Software procurement is well worth the investment in cost, time and energy, when done correctly. It can transform your organization by giving staff the right tools to do their jobs better, manage and share information. BCNPHA and BC Housing held a series of meetings and conversations with non-profit housing providers around British Columbia to talk about information technology. The capacity to undertake buying software solutions emerged as a key barrier. This guide is one of the responses generated to remove that barrier.
