In 2016, we began a series of audits in accordance with our goal to review the U.S.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Office of Inspector General audited HUD’s oversight of public housing agencies’ Section 8 Project-Based Voucher programs (program). The audit was part of the activities in our fiscal year 2010 annual audit plan and our strategic plan to help HUD resolve its major management challenges.

HUD Lacks Adequate Oversight to Require Public Housing Agencies to Separately Account for Unrestricted and Restricted Section 8 Program Administrative Fees
We performed a review of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) oversight of public housing agencies’ unrestricted and restricted Section 8 administrative fee reserves. We initiated this review because in our audits of two housing authorities, neither agency was able to clearly account for its administrative fee reserve funds and demonstrate that they were used appropriately.
