System Development at HUD (SDM)
|IMPORTANT NOTICE TO CURRENT IT PROJECTS: Effective February 1, 2014, the Project Planning and Management (PPM) Life Cycle V2.0 will be used for all IT projects. The PPM Life Cycle replaces HUD's previous PPM (PPM V1.0} and System Development Methodology (SDM). Current IT contracts that require projects to follow the PPM V1.0 or SDM will be addressed by the Government Technical Representatives (GTRs) on a case-by-case basis in order to determine how much, if any, of the work can be incorporated into the new PPM Life Cycle.
The purpose of this site is to guide you through the HUD System Development Methodology (SDM) process, and provide easy access through the links below to the policies, procedures, and standards required to successfully develop systems at HUD.
Over the years we've put in place a number of policies and procedures for developing Information Technology (IT) systems. In addition, we've established IT Infrastucture and System Development platform standards for both IT operations and system development.

The Project Leader Help Guide helps the new Project Leader, contractor or developer in understanding how HUD works, and how to successfully plan and manage an IT project at HUD. It's a roadmap to help navigate through key HUD processes, and provides basic guidance concerning what action is required, why the action is required, and when to typically take action.
