Reverse Auction Program (RAP)

The PIH-REAC Reverse Auction Program (RAP) involves a process of securing property inspection services for HUD-assisted housing. An auction is conducted with the use of a reverse auction vendor
website and allows participants to bid down, as opposed to the traditional auction which requires submitting sequentially higher bids. An award is made to an eligible contractor with the lowest bid at
the close of the auction. The contractor then schedules and performs the property inspections in accordance with Uniform Physical Condition Standards (UPCS) protocol.


Currently, there are no auctions scheduled.

Winning lots from Auctions 665 will not be awarded.



(NEW) REAC announces the April 30, 2016 Release of the NEW RAPID 4.0 Client Software. The new software is a result of PASS’ continual commitment to improve business processes for our business partners and some of the features in the new software were created in direct response to the feedback received from inspectors. Per the Reverse Auction Program’s Purchase Order Terms and Conditions, RAP contractors are responsible for ensuring inspectors conduct inspections utilizing the new software.

A User Guide with instructions on how to install the new software can be found on PASS’ 4.0 DCD webpage at:  The User Guide includes installation instructions and a how-to on the following updated features:

  1. Archiving Inspections
  2. Restoring Inspections
  3. Inputting Area Measurements
  4. Resetting Passwords

PLEASE NOTE: It is critically important that inspectors read the User Guide before installing the new software. The new software should not be installed until all “In Progress” inspections are uploaded. Also, downloaded inspections must be re-downloaded after installing the new software. If you have questions or wish to report a problem, please contact TAC at 1-888-245-4860.
