The cost of the evaluation is £49,850, excluding VAT.

The aim of the evaluation is to assess the implementation and impact of the Rent Smart Wales service since its previous evaluation in 2018. Within its scope, the evaluation will look to: identify any barriers to delivery; measure the impact of the service on PRS standards for key stakeholders, including tenants, local authorities, landlords, and letting agents; determine the effect of the service in facilitating compliance with relevant housing legislation; and gauge progress against Programme for Government commitments.
