This workshop is designed to discuss the fundamentals of REAC Compliance and the UPCS Inspection Protocols, as well as all of the recent updates and expected changes. This session includes a high-level review of the UPCS Inspection Code, REAC Scoring, the new rules, and updates. This classroom session is a terrific resource for managers, maintenance, and executives who want to understand what needs to be addressed on their properties at all times to ensure that the property is well prepared at all times and non-compliance risks can be identified and eliminated.
In 2018, HUD stated that there would be a new direction for REAC - one that places focus on everyday compliance, inspections that are able to accurately portray what the condition of the property is like for residents on an average day, not just after a maintenance fire drill. Proper physical compliance on properties needs to be a vigilant process, one that is constantly in motion and constantly striving to be better
NPSIRE - A New Inspection Protocol and Process for HUD Properties
HUD has indicated a new series of changes to the inspection process, creating a new inspection protocol - NSPIRE - which promises to reinvent the inspection process.
The new changes require so much more than a new inspection checklist - it presents organizational challenges, including new demands on leadership and teamwork.
We will review both what the future will bring and what needs to be done during the transition to NSPIRE.
Who Should Attend This Seminar?
This course is more than a maintenance course, as it discusses regulatory changes and requirements, methods for effective oversight and daily planning to ensure properties are always in full compliance. From property managers to maintenance professionals, to regional and executive staff, understanding the requirements for REAC compliance is a vital part of being an affordable housing industry stakeholder.
Understanding the Current REAC Rules and Preparing Properties to be Ready Everyday
Understanding REAC Inspections
Understanding REAC Compliance is about understanding that the physical requirements for a property are no different than the regulatory requirements - you have to have a discerning eye for issues at all times, set processes in place to double-check your physical compliance. During this workshop, after covering the new updates, requirements, and anticipated new direction for HUD REAC, we will review the existing requirements and how you can best prepare your properties for REAC Inspections.
