We audited the procurement process of Madison Park North Apartments, a Section 236 property, at the request of the Director of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Baltimore Office of Multifamily Housing Programs. We also reviewed Madison’s Park’s use of its reserve for replacement account. Madison Park generally ensured that procurement and reserve for replacement account requirements were met. However, it did not obtain cost estimates from three contractors, as required, for $168,702 in repairs of housing units. We recommend that the Director of HUD’s Baltimore Office of Multifamily Housing Programs require Madison Park to implement and follow adequate controls to ensure that it obtains three cost estimates for services that exceed $10,000 per year.
