Exploring the New Frontier of UPCS-V
Presenter, Michael Petragallo

Housing professionals who manage inspections in the voucher program have certainly been on a bumpy ride the past few years, from the 2014 HQS deregulation and the implementation of biennial inspection options to HUD's recent proposal of an entirely new inspection protocol, Uniform Physical Condition Standards for Vouchers (UPCS-V). With the UPCS-V demonstration now announced, if not yet officially open, we have more questions than answers. In this session, NMA’s inspections experts will cover them all, including:

  • What is UPCS-V? Get an in-depth review of the new inspection protocol.
  • Scoring vs. pass/fail... what does it mean?
  • How does the proposed protocol affect our inspections deliverables to landlords and HUD?
  • What impact might it have on housing authorities, their inspections teams, and the landlord community?
  • And what about the technical aspects? The operating system is just the tip of the iceberg.
