HUD/PIH RIN: 2577-AC95 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Aligning the Public Housing Assessment System and Section 8 Management Assessment Program: Section 8 Public Housing Assessment System (SEPHAS) (FR-5860) 

This proposed rule would revise HUD’s Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) regulations and Section 8 Management Assessment Program (SEMAP) regulations governing the assessments, evaluation and oversight of public housing agencies (PHAs) administering public housing and Section 8 programs. Under the proposed rule performance would focus on key indicators such as occupancy, financial, and physical assessments. To the greatest extent possible, scoring indicators would be based on measurable program outcomes based on data that is already available to HUD as opposed to being process oriented. The proposed rule will also seek to align SEMAP and PHAS scoring indicators and reduce or eliminate the reliance on PHA self-certifications as a verification method of PHA performance.
