The reporter learned from the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development on the 23rd that the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development and the Ministry of Finance decided to carry out pilot work on government purchases of public rental housing operation management services in eight provinces including Zhejiang, Anhui, Shandong, Hubei, Guangxi, Sichuan, Yunnan and Shaanxi according to the local voluntary principle and the development of public rental housing.
The Pilot Program for the Implementation of the Government's Purchase of Public Rental Housing Operation Management Services announced by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development recently clarified that the pilot areas should comprehensively sort out the various types of public rental housing operations and management that are currently under the government's scope of duties and arranged by fiscal expenditures. Those which are suitable for market-oriented modes of public rental housing operation management services can be implemented through government purchase.
According to the pilot program, the purchase contents mainly include: check-in and exit management, including house selection, lease contract signing, renewal, change, check-in procedures, collection of basic information of new residents, establishment of household files, check-out procedures (but not including access and cancellation of eligibility); rent collection and housing use management; maintenance and comprehensive management.
The pilot program emphasizes that the pilot area should consider the local economic and social development level, financial affordability and the status quo of public rental housing operation and management, reasonably determine the purchase content, and incorporate the services suitable for government purchase into the guiding catalogue for government purchase services, and adjust in time according to the actual situation. Government services may not be implemented for services that are not part of the government's scope of responsibility, or that should be provided directly by the government and are not suitable for market-oriented means.
Through the pilot, a sound public rental housing operation management mechanism will be established in the pilot area to improve the government's management system and process for purchasing public rental housing operation management services, and a number of pilot projects that can be replicated and promoted will be formed to provide support for improving the operation and management capabilities of public rental housing.
