Background

HUD's Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) provides for the assessment of the physical condition, financial condition, management operations and resident services and satisfaction of public housing. HUD's regulations implementing the PHAS and codified in 24 CFR part 902 provide for this assessment to be made through physical inspection of public housing properties, survey of public housing residents, and a PHA's submission of audited financial statements and its certification to certain management data as required by the regulations. HUD's PHAS regulations were amended by a final rule published on January 11, 2000 (65 FR 1712) and a technical correction was published on June 6, 2000 (65 FR 36042).

In a notice published on August 9, 2000 (65 FR 48730), HUD advised that due to errors or difficulties in submission of their management operations certifications, certain PHAs with fiscal years ended September 30, 1999, and December 31, 1999, did not fully meet the requirements under the PHAS Management Operations Indicator. HUD therefore advised these PHAs that they could submit or resubmit the management operations certification, as applicable, without penalty during the time periods outlined in Table 1 of the August 9, 2000, notice.

Additionally, in the August 9, 2000 notice, HUD advised that the audited financial statements of certain PHAs with a fiscal year ended September 30, 1999, were not all properly received and processed. The August 9, 2000, notice therefore provided these PHAs with additional time to submit their audited financial statements.

The majority of PHAs covered by the August 9, 2000, notice successfully completed submission or resubmission of their management operations certification or audited financial statement. However, several PHAs continued to experience difficulties.

This document provides notice that HUD is providing the PHAs with fiscal years ended September 30, 1999, and December 31, 1999, as well as PHAs with a fiscal year ending March 31, 2000, with additional time to make their PHAS management operations certification submissions. This document also provides notice that HUD is providing PHAs with fiscal years ending September 30, 1999, and December 31, 1999, with additional time to make their audited financial statement submissions.

Management operations certifications must be submitted to REAC no later than December 21, 2000.

Audited financial statements must be submitted to REAC no later than December 6, 2000.
