NAHMAnalysis: HUD Tests Idea of PBCA Alternative: National and Regional Support Services

December 20, 2017

Today, we published a new NAHMAnalysis titled “HUD Tests Idea of PBCA Alternative: National and Regional Support Services.

In early December, 2017, HUD published a draft Request for Proposal (RFP) which states that once the existing 53 ACCs expire (or are terminated), the PBCA program will end and HUD will become the contract administrator for all HAP contracts in the Multifamily Housing portfolio. The release states that it is merely a “sources sought notice” with no commitment to move forward with a formal solicitation. HUD has requested comments on draft changes to the HAP contract oversight. Based on HUD’s draft request for proposal (RFP), NAHMA believes that HUD intends to significantly alter the current PBCA program to establish a national and regional oversight approach titled “HAP Contract National / Regional Support Services” (HAPNSS / HAPRSS).

This NAHMAnalysis reviews HUD’s draft RFP with regard to Performance Work Statement (PWS) of both the National and Regional HAP Contract Support Services.  We are requesting member feedback on the draft RFPs, as well HUD’s national/regional approach. Please submit comments to me by COB, December 29, 2017.

The attached NAHMAnalysis will be made available online here later this week.
