"SEMAP and Beyond" Compliance Assessments

Is your PHA really meeting HUD requirements? When you've been doing things "your way" for a long time, sometimes you just can’t be certain. NMA can help.


Reviewing Your Agency's SEMAP Files

If you're scoring SEMAP incorrectly, you run the risk of a HUD confirmatory review or OIG audit that could result in a Corrective Action Plan.

On the other end of the spectrum, it's very possible that your agency is actually doing more than is necessary. Making adjustments here is a smart way to save both time and money.

It's vitally important for you and your staff to understand what HUD requires, and maintain an adequate audit trail to substantiate your self-scoring.


Conducting a SEMAP Assessment

NMA will review your agency's SEMAP documentation and independently conduct a mini-SEMAP assessment, including extended file reviews beyond SEMAP requirements. We'll look at:

  • Waiting List indicator
  • Rent Reasonableness indicator
  • Determination of Adjusted Income
  • Utility Allowance Schedule
  • HQS Quality Control inspections
  • HQS Enforcement (OIG has been conducting reviews)
  • Expanding housing opportunities (metropolitan FMR areas only)
  • Payment Standards
  • HAP contract executed within 60 days of lease effective date
  • Required file documentation (Lease, HAPC)
  • Correct application of subsidy standards
  • SEMAP record keeping
  • SEMAP reviewer's understanding of requirements


Your "SEMAP and Beyond" Compliance Report

NMA will provide your agency with a detailed report, outlining:

  • Findings on each indicator we reviewed
  • Opportunities for improving the audit trail
  • Our assessment of the QC staff's understanding of SEMAP and program requirements
  • Any peripheral issues noted during the course of the assessment

Ensure that your agency is on the right track with SEMAP. Contact us today!
