16 Use in Procurement – Other Uses?
Before we move on to looking at what the format and content of version 6 should be, have any of you had experience of using the NHF SOR in other methods of procurement?

17 Version 6 - 1 Should we separate Responsive Day to Day and Voids
Should we separate the most frequently incurring items from those less used but still required. Should we separate repairs from renewals. Trade or Elemental format e.g all works associated with bathrooms or solid fuel appliances in their own section regardless of trade involvement.

18 Version 6 - 2 How much rationalisation: Any Others ??
have all windows measured in sq metres regardless of numbers of opening and fixed lights, size etc have all glazing msd in sq metres regardless of pane size have a standard cost for redecorating rooms with variances in specification applied by % add assume that all ‘old’ components like metal windows, cast iron gutters etc have been renewed with modern products One standard void item covering all the prime basic works done on void eg lock change, gas and electric tests, pre-occupation check, condition inspection, change wc seat, overhaul taps, cistern etc. Any Others ??
