HUD OIG performed a corrective action verification of the audit recommendations cited in the audit report, Miami-Dade Housing Agency (Agency) Did Not Ensure Section 8-Assisted Units Met Housing Quality Standards (2006-AT-1001) issued December 21, 2005. The purpose of the corrective action verification was to determine if the selected audit recommendations were implemented and the deficiencies reported in the audit report corrected.
The Agency disregarded the management decisions and did not implement the promised corrective action. The Agency did not correct the housing quality standards violations we cited in our prior audit and failed to implement its revised Section 8 administrative plan. As a result, the deficiencies reported in our audit report were not corrected, and the Agency continued to violate HUD requirements.
OIG recommended and HUD agreed with reopening recommendations 1A and 1B from our previous audit report 2006-AT-1001 because the Agency did not implement the agreed upon corrective actions.
