HUD is responsible for national policy and programs that address America’s housing needs, that improve and develop the Nation’s communities, and enforce fair housing laws. HUD’s business is helping create a decent home and suitable living environment for all Americans, and it has given America’s communities a strong national voice at the Cabinet level. HUD plays a major role in supporting homeownership by underwriting homeownership for low- and moderate-income families through its mortgage insurance programs.

Purchasing/Contracting Needs

In a typical year, HUD contracts around $1 billion on a variety of services and supplies. A large proportion of the money is used to place task and delivery orders under existing contracts and to exercise options to contracts. The number of new contracts varies from year to year. 

HUD’s contracting needs may vary significantly from headquarters to its field offices. At headquarters, for example, contracts and purchases primarily support headquarters programs. They include professional services such as research studies, business process re-engineering, technical assistance to HUD funding recipients and logistical support services for maintenance and supplies. 

The majority of HUD’s field contracts and purchases support the field program operations of the Department’s Office of Housing. Under its Single Family and Multifamily Housing programs, HUD manages, markets, and sells single and multifamily real estate properties. Contracted services include property management, property marketing, sales closings, routine inspections and appraisals. 

For the mortgage insurance programs, contracted services may include mortgage credit analysis, mortgage insurance endorsement processing, title service and underwriting analysis. 

Purchases of general supplies and services to support HUD’s field offices normally do not provide any significant contracting opportunities. Most of these purchases are made with local vendors using simplified acquisition procedures.
