This topic brief summarized the current status of all information technology (IT) and privacy program recommendations issued to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) by the Office of Inspector General’s Office of Evaluation, Information Technology Evaluations Division (iTED) from Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 through 2019.  The report breaks down numbers of recommendations by functional areas and analyzes the progress made toward closing recommendations.  The last section of the report lists our understanding of some of HUD’s key challenges to closing recommendations and provides possible steps toward increasing HUD’s effectiveness in addressing and resolving its open recommendations.

Since FY2014, iTED has issued 265 IT and privacy program recommendations to HUD.  152 of these recommendations remain open or unresolved as of the date of this report.  It is important to note that 45 of the recommendations assigned to the Office of Administration are privacy program related recommendations.

The OIG has determined that the contents of this report would not be appropriate for public disclosure and has therefore limited its distribution to selected officials.  Please contact the Office of Evaluation at [email protected] to request a copy of this report.
