10/09/2019 - Northgate Housing Management System Upgrade ref: 1263    Recommendations Approved

Northgate Housing is the integrated housing management system which provides estates, repairs, rents, arrears and allocations functionality for Housing Services.
Northgate Housing is a business critical system which underpins the Council’s housing management functions. The Council has used the Northgate Housing system since 2000 and its processes and procedures are well embedded and integral to current ways of working. The current contract to provide support for the Northgate Housing application is due for renewal at the end of March 2020. However there are significant risks to business continuity which will leave us with an unsupported system; from January 2020
