The Northern Ireland Housing Executive (the Housing Executive) wishes to appoint a research contractor to conduct the fieldwork for Public Attitudes Survey (PAS) during the period April 2012 to 30 September 2012.
The PAS was first commissioned in February 1984, to measure and compare the opinions of all members of the public who use the Housing Executive's services. The information gathered is used to inform strategic and operational decisions in the field of social housing.
The PAS is an important element of the Housing Executive's research programme. While it supports a number of Corporate Objectives, it is primarily linked to Objective 6 “Delivering Better Public Services” as set out in the Corporate Plan.
The PAS focuses on the perceptions and experiences of people living in all tenures, examining issues such as attitudes to the Housing Executive, contact levels, customer satisfaction, and the social, economic and demographic profile of tenants.
