HUD OIG is auditing HUD's  Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) inspection process. REAC's inspection process helps to ensure decent, safe and sanitary affordable public housing .  The audit objectives are to (1) determine whether HUD's Real Estate Assessment Center ensured that, before it postponed physical inspections due to COVID-19, public housing properties were inspected within required timeframes, (2) evaluate the Center’s plan to restart inspections of public housing properties that were postponed due to COVID-19, and (3) determine whether the Center was evaluating the physical conditions of public housing properties approved under the NSPIRE demonstration program to ensure that residents were living in decent, safe, and sanitary housing.
