The New Multifamily Housing Chapter of the HUD Consolidated Audit Guide Web Event. This archived GAQC Web event titled, The New Multifamily Housing Chapter of the HUD Consolidated Audit Guide, is intended for members who perform U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) multifamily housing audits, and is based on the long-awaited revisions to Chapter 3, HUD Multifamily Housing Programs (Chapter 3), of the HUD Consolidated Audit Guide (the HUD Guide). The presenter for this call, George Datto of HUD, highlights the major changes in the chapter. The presenter also explains at a very high-level the other new chapter that was issued at the same time as Chapter 3. The new Chapter 4, HUD Multifamily Hospital Program (Chapter 4) is essentially the previous Chapter 4 from the 2001 version of the Guide. However, the title is revised to apply only to the Multifamily Hospital Program. Because Chapter 4 previously applied to more than just the Multifamily Hospital Program, portions will no longer be applicable. Further, HUD has stated that auditors are expected to use professional judgment in applying Chapter 4 to audits of the Multifamily Hospital Program.
