A new REAC Compilation Bulletin (CB) for RAPID 4.0 has been issued, effective 8/12/2014, and supersedes all previous editions and any preceding separate guidance. Please read this REAC CB in its entirety so that all inspectors are familiar with the procedures for RAPID 4.0. The REAC CB provides answers to some of the most common questions received from inspectors in the field and clarifies certain areas of the inspection protocol to further ensure that physical inspections are objective and conducted in accordance with the Uniform Physical Condition Standards (UPCS) and HUD’s inspection protocol. It is the inspector's responsibility to apply this guidance, as well as any other guidance issued by the Department, when conducting all physical inspections using the HUD UPCS protocol.
The information in the REAC Compilation Bulletin has been communicated to inspectors through email, training sessions, and/or other methods. Please be sure you update your existing guidance on all of the revised items with this new publication. Failure to apply and follow these guidelines will negatively impact your performance and evaluation as an inspector.
