During the summer of 2012, PIH-REAC offered training on financial reporting and accounting requirements on the FASS-PH system, with an emphasis on the Housing Choice Voucher and Public Housing programs. The training was targeted to PHA accounting staff, fee accountants, and auditors that manage/service the Public Housing Authorities. Training was provided in various cities across the United States using a stand-up lecture approach with learning exercise and case studies to help reinforce the various concepts.
The training manuals from the August 2012 training held in Newark, NJ can be accessed via the links below. Note: The training manuals are formatted to print double-sided.
PHA accountants, fee accountants, auditors and other financial staff are encouraged to use these training manuals, when preparing and reporting their annual financial information to HUD. However, in using the training manuals, users should note that the training manuals were developed based on the HUD guidance that was in effect as of July 2012. Therefore, users are cautioned that certain sections of the training may be subsequently superseded by newer guidance or changes to the FASS-PH system. More detailed information on limitations regarding the use of the training manuals and the source documents used to develop the training manuals can be found at the following link: Source documents.
