Housing Policies, Procedure Development & Training

By collaborating with HUD Southwest Office of Native American Programs (SWONAP), reviewing current Program Guidance issued by HUD, and through best practices review of current policy; we update the policy accordingly to ensure thorough compliance with the ability to be tested by audit and self-audit.

Procurement, Contracts Management & Development

Procurement and contracting are a common finding of non-compliance with HUD. Having a policy that is clear and concise with thorough guidance on common areas of: Indian Preference in Contracting, Due Diligence, Compliance with Federal ‘CFR’s’; is highly necessary. Having policy and contracts that protect the rights and authority of the Native Communities is important. Our staff has created policy that has been tested through bid protests, litigation, and administrative hearing – all of which have been found to favor the housing authority in protecting their best interests.
