NAHMA HUD Update: Request for Member Comments on Draft RFPs for HAP Contract Administration, Comments Due December 29

This month, HUD is soliciting comments on their draft Request For Proposal (RFP)  for Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) Contract National Support Services (HAPNSS) and Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) Contract Regional Support Services (HAPRSS), both are (Formerly known as Performance-Based Contract Administrator (PBCA) Program).  According to the release, it states “THIS IS A SOURCES SOUGHT NOTICE. This is not a request for offers, quotes or proposals. This notice does not represent a commitment by the Government to issue a formal solicitation or award a contract. This is a market research tool to solicit comments on the Draft RFP from capable sources and to determine the capability of potential sources.”

However, NAHMA believes this is a clear indication that HUD will significantly alter the current PBCA program and establish a national/regional oversight approach.  Based on the draft RFPs, the National Contractor will conduct Portfolio Analysis, Risk Assessment and Reporting, HAP Contract Administration Support/Renewals, HAP Contract Rent Adjustment, and other associated reporting duties.  The Regional Contractors will conduct MORs, Monthly HAP Vouchers and Special Claims Processing, Tenant Health and Safety, HAP Contract Opt-Outs and Terminations, and other associated reporting duties.  We are requesting member feedback on the attached draft RFPs. Please submit comments to me by COB, December 29, 2017If you are a PBCA, I recommend you respond to the solicitations directly by the Jan. 2, 2018 deadline, however please provide comments to NAHMA, as well.

Members are encouraged to review the Performance Work Statements (PWS) for each solicitation to understand the responsibilities associated with both the National and Regional Support Services.

Please feel free to reach out to me, if you have any questions or comments.
