We audited the Housing Authority of the County of Alameda’s Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) conversion to the Section 8 Project-Based Voucher Program.  We selected the Authority because reviews of RAD conversions were aligned with the goals of our annual audit plan.  The objective of our review was to determine whether the Authority administered its RAD conversion in accordance with HUD requirements.  Specifically, we wanted to determine whether the Authority (1) executed appropriate written agreements, (2) ensured that project financing sources were secured, (3) ensured that the required environmental reviews were accomplished, (4) maintained separate books and records for the RAD conversion, (5) complied with HUD occupancy requirements, and (6) complied with HUD requirements related to increases in tenant rental payments as a result of the conversion.

 

The Authority generally administered its RAD conversion in accordance with HUD requirements.  Specifically, the Authority ensured that it (1) executed proper written agreements, (2) secured project financing sources, (3) completed required environmental reviews, (4) maintained separate books and records for its RAD conversion, and (5) complied with HUD occupancy requirements, and (6) did not increase tenant rental payments as a result of the conversion complied with HUD requirements.
