The Northern Ireland Housing Executive (NIHE) was set up by the Housing executive Act (Northern Ireland) 1971. We assumed the housing responsibilities of some 65 separate authorities to become Northern Ireland’s Regional Housing Authority, making the Housing Executive a unique body in UK Public Administration.
The Library Information Service fulfils a vital role in the provision of timely and accurate information to all staff in the Northern Ireland Housing Executive and external users. To help provide this service the use of an online information service which can provide information on all aspects of local government, public sector management, economic development, planning, housing and a host of other areas is of importance. This information is required by senior management and is used for research, study and informing policy.
