On September 28, 2022, HUD OIG issued this inaugural Priority Open Recommendations resource for the Department and other stakeholders to promote the efficiency and effectiveness of HUD programs and operations. These priority open recommendations fall within several areas we identified in our FY 2022 Top Management Challenges report:

  • Eliminating Hazards in HUD Assisted-Housing
  • Administering Disaster Recovery Assistance
  • Grants Management
  • Ensuring Access to and Availability of Affordable Housing
  • Mitigating Counterparty Risks in Mortgage Programs
  • Management and Oversight of Information Technology
  • Fraud Risk Management
  • Managing Human Capital

We believe these open recommendations, if implemented, will have the greatest impact on helping HUD achieve its mission to create strong, sustainable, inclusive communities and quality affordable homes for all. We recognize the forward progress HUD has made in many of these areas and HUD’s steadfast commitment to improve its programs and operations. We continue to monitor HUD’s progress and provide assistance to HUD’s leadership as they work towards resolution and implementation of our priority recommendations. We will periodically update this resource to reflect progress in closing these priority recommendations.
