REAC is further enhancing its inspection reporting process by including photo documentation of deficiencies observed during the course of the inspection. Initially, the photo documentation will limit its activity of photographing only Level 3 observed deficiencies. During the initial phase a limited number of inspectors will be utilizing our new photograph capability in selected physical inspections of Public Housing and Multifamily properties. We are making efforts to ensure that all affected properties are aware that inspectors will be photographing deficiencies. These inspections will be inspections of record, with the inspection report reviewed and released like any other REAC physical inspection and will now include photo documentation.

The proposed timeframe is as follows: beginning this month, QA Inspectors will test the software. After QA testing is complete, the photograph capability will be expanded to all physical inspections, with the time period from October 2014 to December 2014 devoted to the full implementation of this technology. Further communications will be provided in the near future concerning the full implementation timetable; however, all inspectors should begin to prepare.
