Heaton, Director, Office of Public Housing, 4CPH FROM: Nancy H. Cooper District Inspector General for Audit-Southeast/Caribbean, 4AGA SUBJECT: Mobile Housing Board Procurement Operations Mobile, Alabama We have completed an audit of the Mobile Housing Board’s (MHB) procurement operations. The review was initiated in response to a citizen’s complaint. Our audit objective was to determine whether the MHB administered its procurement activities in compliance with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requirements. We focused our audit to evaluate the MHB’s controls and procedures over its procurement activities for fiscal years 1998 and 1999. Our report presents one finding that details the MHB’s need for improvement with recommendations for corrective action. Within 60 days, please give us a status report for each recommendation in the report on: (1) corrective action taken; (2) the proposed corrective action and a planned implementation date; or (3) why action is not considered necessary. Also, please furnish us copies of any correspondence or directives issued as a result of the audit. Should you or your staff have any questions, please contact me or Sonya D. Lucas, Assistant District Inspector General for Audit, at (404) 331-3369. We are providing a copy of this report to the MHB. Table of Contents Exit Management Memorandum (This Page Left Blank Intentionally) 01-AT-204-1003 Page ii Table of Contents Exit Executive Summary We completed an audit of the Mobile Housing Board’s procurement operations. The review was initiated in response to a citizen’s complaint. Our review disclosed significant weaknesses in the Mobile Housing Board’s administration of its procurement activities. Specifically, the audit disclosed that: The Mobile Housing Board utilized incorrect procedures to procure certain goods and services and did not procure contracts in accordance with HUD’s requirements. The MHB used small purchase procedures to procure flooring, paint, and window installation services when it should have used sealed bidding. Frequently, MHB: (1) obtained less than the required three quotes; (2) selected other than the lowest quote; and (3) repeatedly solicited and selected the same vendors. Also, contract deficiencies included: (1) issuing purchase orders without valid contracts in place; (2) improperly soliciting and awarding contracts without adequate competition; (3) awarding a sole source procurement without prior HUD approval; and (4) not performing independent cost estimates or cost and price analyses. As a result, the MHB procured services on a piecemeal basis when it would have been more efficient and cost effective to award larger contracts combining the work. Therefore, HUD lacked assurance that the MHB obtained goods and services at the most advantageous terms. We presented three findings to the Mobile Housing Board and HUD’s Alabama State Office officials during the course of the audit and at the exit conference on September 27, 2000. The Mobile Housing Board provided written comments on October 21, 2000. We considered the comments in finalizing the report and combined the three findings. The MHB generally agreed with the finding in this report. The MHB’s comments are summarized in the finding and included in their entirety as Appendix B. We recommend HUD require the Mobile Housing Board to : implement procurement policies and procedures to ensure proper procurement planning, appropriate selection methods, use of authorized staff, proper contract administration, contract solicitations, cost estimates, price analyses and training of the MHB’s procurement personnel.

Its primary mission is to provide low-income housing for qualified individuals. The Housing Board is governed by a five-member Board of Commissioners appointed by the City of Mobile. The Board has governance responsibilities over all activities related to the housing activities within the Mobile Housing Board. The Board is responsible for approving an annual operating budget, hiring its own management personnel, signing contracts, issuing bonds, and deciding which programs to provide. The Executive Director of the Housing Board is Stevens Gregory. HUD’s Alabama State Office in Birmingham, Alabama, Office of Public Housing has the responsibility for overseeing the Housing Board. The Housing Board maintains its records at 151 South Claiborne Street, Mobile, Alabama. The Housing Board owns and manages 16 public housing developments consisting of 4,177 public housing units. In addition, the MHB administers 1,785 Section 8 Existing Certificates totaling $6,257,855 and 495 Vouchers totaling $1,146,854. MHB received $1,943,063 to administer 422 Section 8 New Construction units and $319,038 to administer 87 Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation units. The Mobile Housing Board received $8,872,784 of HUD operating subsidy for fiscal year 1998. Our audit objective was to determine whether the Mobile Audit objectives, Housing Board administered its procurement activities in scope and compliance with HUD requirements. methodology To accomplish the objective, we tested for compliance with program requirements. We interviewed Alabama State Office of Public Housing program officials, current and former Housing Board staff, and contractors. Specifically, we reviewed procedures over the Housing Board’s administration of the procurement activities during fiscal years 1998 and 1999; reviewed contracts, financial records and reports; and reviewed HUD’s Alabama State Office monitoring reviews. To test for the eligibility and proper support for expenditures, we judgmentally selected 16 of 40 contracts from the Housing Board’s 1998 and 1999 contract registers. Our review of contracts focused on the award and contract administration phases. In addition, we reviewed the purchase orders for the 16 contractors selected and for an additional vendor without an executed contract. (See Appendix A for deficiencies.) Page 1 01-AT-204-1003 Table of Contents Exit Introduction Our audit primarily covered the period of January 1998 through December 1999. We extended the period as necessary. We performed on-site work from January through April 2000. We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards. 01-AT-204-1003 Page 2 Table of Contents Exit Finding The Housing Board Did Not Procure Certain Goods and Services and Contracts Properly The Mobile Housing Board utilized incorrect procedures to procure certain goods and services and did not procure contracts in accordance with HUD’s requirements. The MHB used small purchase procedures to procureflooring, paint, and window installation services when it should have used sealed bidding. Frequently, MHB: (1) obtained less than the required three quotes; (2) selected other than the lowest quote; and (3) repeatedly solicited and selected the same vendors. Also, contract deficiencies included: (1) issuing purchase orders without valid contracts in place; (2) improperly soliciting and awarding contracts without adequate competition; (3) awarding a sole source procurement without prior HUD approval; and (4) not performing independent cost estimates or cost and price analyses. These deficiencies occurred because MHB did not adequately plan its procurements in advance; inappropriate staff, with limited or no training on the HUD procurement requirements, performed solicitations; and, staff did not follow the procurement requirements. As a result, the MHB procured services on a piecemeal basis when it would have been more efficient and cost effective to award larger contracts combining the work. Therefore, HUD lacked assurance that the MHB obtained goods and services at the most advantageous terms. HUD Procurement Handbook for Public and Indian Criteria Housing Authorities, 7460.8 REV-1, Paragraph 2-1 states that regardless of the method used, Housing Authorities should plan their contracts in advance and attempt to obtain full and open competition to ensure that quality goods and services are obtained at a reasonable price. Paragraph 4-3 (A) states that if there is a recurring need for services and supplies which is estimated to go over the $25,000 limit, sealed bidding or competitive proposals procedures shall be used rather than small purchase procedures. The Mobile Housing Board’s procurement policy Part I, B (1) states that it is the Executive Director’s responsibility to ascertain that the yearly procurements are adequately and timely planned. Part II, Section A (2) states that purchases and contracts in excess of $1,000, but not exceeding $25,000, shall be made by the Executive Director (or another individual authorized by the Executive Director) on Page 3 01-AT-204-1003 Table of Contents Exit Finding the basis of at least three price quotes obtained orally, by telephone, or in writing. The Executive Director or any other person authorized by the Executive Director shall be responsible for maintaining files of all price quotes requested and received. The files shall contain the names, addresses, telephone numbers of the firms/persons contacted, and their quotes. Title 24 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 85.36 (b) (2) requires the Authority to maintain a contract administration system which ensures that contractors perform in accordance with the terms, conditions, and specifications of their contracts; Section (d) (2) (i) states that in order for sealed bidding to be feasible, two or more responsible bidders are willing and able to compete effectively and for the business; and Section (f) requires the Authority to perform a cost or price analysis in connection with every procurement action including modifications regardless of the procurement method used. HUD Procurement Handbook 7460.8 REV-1, Paragraph 4- 26 (E) states that if an Authority receives fewer than three proposals, the Authority should analyze the proposals and document the reason for the poor response. Depending on the results of the analysis, the Authority may either reject the proposals and issue a revised solicitation or proceed to evaluate the proposals. In a 1999 Public Housing Management Assessment HUD’s review results Program Confirmatory Review, the HUD Alabama State Office noted that the Housing Board did not properly plan its procurements for flooring (carpet and tile work). The Alabama State Office reported the MHB used small purchase procedures when issuing 209 purchase orders totaling $358,547. The Alabama State Office recommended that the MHB analyze its flooring needs and take sealed bids, if the anticipated total amount exceeded $25,000. 01-AT-204-1003 Page 4 Table of Contents Exit Finding The Mobile Housing Board used the small purchase Small purchase procedures to procure its flooring, paint and window procedures were services. However, all of the services had recurring needs inadequately used which exceeded $25,000. Therefore, the MHB should have used the sealed bidding or competitive proposals procedures. As a result, the Authority inadequately procured services without full and open competition as shown below. Purchases for Flooring Services Our review of the 1998 flooring services purchase orders revealed that the Housing Board issued 241 purchase orders totaling $387,368. The purchase orders ranged from $11 to $28,266 and were issued almost daily every month. Several of the purchase orders total exceeded $20,000 and two of the purchase orders were annotated “not to exceed $24,500.” In 1999, the Housing Board issued 188 purchase orders totaling $215,721. The purchase orders ranged from $8 to $23,937. Again, the Housing Board issued purchase orders every month with two that exceeded $20,000. The Housing Board staff informed us that there were several ongoing modernization projects in 1998 and 1999. In 1999, the Housing Board was also operating under a deadline to reduce vacancies at certain developments. Under the circumstances, the staff stated they believed issuing purchase orders was quicker than soliciting for formal bids. The MHB knew that several modernization projects were being undertaken which would require significant flooring services. Therefore, the Housing Board should have anticipated that a large amount of funds would be expended. In addition, the aggregate number and amount of purchase orders issued in 1998 should have highlighted the necessity for sealed bids in 1999. Page 5 01-AT-204-1003 Table of Contents Exit Finding Purchases for Paint and Window Services The Housing Board did not adequately plan its procurement of paint and window services as shown below: Purchase Purchase Orders Total Order Year Services Issued Amount Range 1998 Paint 151 $105,145 $28-$5,286 1999 Paint 107 $103,816 $23-$4,295 1998 Window 70 $ 77,133 $45-$16,060 1999 Window 70 $ 62,294 $57-$15,612 As with the flooring services, the Housing Board issued multiple paint and window purchase orders during every month. The MHB issued most of the paint purchase orders to one vendor and all of the window purchase orders to the same vendor. The MHB did not have a contract with these vendors. Overall, the Mobile Housing Board did not adequately plan its purchases of goods and services in advance. When making such purchases, the Housing Board’s planning should have included determining the level of its recurring need and the appropriate procurement procedures. Also, the MHB needed contractual agreements with the vendors. Such actions would have provided better assurance that the MHB had procured goods and services at the most efficient and cost effective method and received reasonable prices. The Housing Board did not comply with HUD’s Three quotes were not procurement requirements or its own procurement policy obtained which required that typically at least three quotes be obtained for each small purchase requisition. Our review of the 1998 and 1999 purchase orders for flooring, paint, and window installation services revealed that the MHB frequently did not obtain the three quotes, as illustrated in the following table. 01-AT-204-1003 Page 6 Table of Contents Exit Finding Percentage of Purchase Total Purchase Orders with Orders with Type of Less than Less than Year Service Three Quotes Three Quotes 1998 Flooring 49 20 1999 Flooring 70 37 1998 Paint 147 97 1999 Paint 97 90 1998 Windows 66 94 1999 Windows 63 90 The MHB staff performing the solicitations did not demonstrate a clear understanding of HUD’s small purchase solicitation requirements. Some staff believed they only needed to contact three vendors and not actually obtain three quotes. If a contacted vendor did not provide a quote, the staff considered that to be one of the three necessary quotes. Another reason staff gave for not obtaining three quotes was that if a vendor was working at a particular development, it was more convenient to give that vendor related work rather than solicit other vendors. Based on our review, staff considered a vendor’s non- response as one of the quotes in only a few instances. Generally, the staff did not solicit quotes from three vendors. For example, the Housing Board often solicited one vendor for paint and one vendor for the window installation services. Generally, the Housing Board awarded purchase orders The lowest quote was based on the lowest quote. However, in some instances in not selected 1998 and 1999, the MHB issued purchase orders for flooring, paint, and window installation services to other than the vendor with the lowest quote. For example, the MHB did not award 11 out of the 70 (16 percent) 1998 purchase orders for window services based on the lowest quote. The MHB staff did not document the reason for such selections. Page 7 01-AT-204-1003 Table of Contents Exit Finding The MHB repeatedly solicited and selected certain vendors Certain vendors were when issuing its 1998 and 1999 purchase orders for repeatedly solicited and flooring, paint, and window services. selected Flooring Services In 1999, a vendor filed a lawsuit against the Housing Board alleging that around April 1999 the Housing Board’s Executive Director instructed his staff not to award the company any purchase orders for flooring services. The vendor charged that he was excluded from bidding, which resulted in him going out of business. Based on our review, we determined that the MHB solicited the vendor in question for 90 percent of the 1998 purchase orders, resulting in payments totaling over $280,000. Until April 1999 the MHB solicited that vendor frequently. In 1999, the MHB paid the vendor over $155,000, most of which pertained to purchase orders from January through March. MHB solicited the vendor at April 2 and April 20. The April purchase orders totaled $3,159. From April 8 through the 19 and April 23 through May 21, MHB did not solicit the vendor. Records show that the MHB solicited the vendor on June 3, at which time the vendor stated he was out of business. Records further show that the MHB solicited the vendor on July 12 and awarded a purchase order. The MHB solicited another vendor for 68 percent of the 1998 purchase orders. During this time, the MHB maintained a bidders/quotes list consisting of seven vendors for flooring services. However, the MHB only solicited three other vendors for 2 to 24 percent of the solicitations. Therefore, the MHB did not afford all vendors an equal opportunity to bid. Similar actions in early 1999 likely resulted in additional instances where vendors were not given similar opportunities to bid. 01-AT-204-1003 Page 8 Table of Contents Exit Finding Regarding the lawsuit allegations, the MHB’s Executive Director stated that it was during the spring of 1999 when he determined unauthorized staff, outside of the Purchasing Department, were soliciting quotes from flooring vendors. He also found that some staff had established the practice of accepting bids from certain vendors which were good from six months to a year. This practice was not authorized. Instead of obtaining current quotes for each requisition, the staff would use the old quotes. Subsequently, he had a purchase requisition quoted again. The Executive Director stated that this was done to give vendors an opportunity to bid. When the Purchasing staff re- solicited bids, they did not solicit the vendor who filed the lawsuit. The Executive Director stated the vendor requested a bid package the day the bid was due. However, the vendor did not submit the bid until after the bid deadline. Paint and window services For the 1998 and 1999 purchase orders issued for paint and window services, the MHB primarily solicited one vendor for every requisition and usually awarded the purchase order to that vendor. This practice of soliciting only certain vendors limited other vendors’ opportunity to participate in small purchase procurements. * * * * * * * The former Purchasing Agent allowed the unauthorized staff to solicit bids. The staff informed us that they were unaware of the bidders lists and solicited based on prior selection practices. Also, they had established a relationship with certain vendors and therefore solicited those vendors. Purchase orders The MHB issued its 1999 purchase orders for paint services were issued without without a valid contract in place. We reviewed 107 valid contracts purchase orders and found that the MHB awarded one vendor 101 (94 percent) of the 1999 purchase orders. In addition, the MHB only obtained one quote for 97 of the 101 (96 percent) purchase orders. Page 9 01-AT-204-1003 Table of Contents Exit Finding The staff informed us that the MHB publicly advertised and solicited for paint services and received two responses. Therefore, the MHB informally awarded a contract to Mobile Paint and issued purchase orders for rendered services. Subsequently, the Purchasing Department staff determined that the Board of Commissioners had not approved the contract and began soliciting other vendors. However, at that time, the MHB had awarded numerous purchase orders to the one vendor without soliciting other vendors. The MHB generally followed proper procedures when it Contracts were received an adequate response to solicitations. However, improperly awarded for 3 of the 16 contracts reviewed, the MHB improperly without adequate awarded the contracts without adequate competition. In all competition three instances, the MHB properly advertised and solicited bids. However, in each case, the Housing Board only received one bid and awarded the contracts to the sole bidders. Although required by HUD, the Housing Board did not document the reason for the poor response or justify why it was not necessary to issue a revised solicitation. The MHB did not follow HUD’s procurement requirements Sole source for a lawn care maintenance contract awarded to a resident procurement was owned business. We found no documentation to support awarded without prior that the Housing Board advertised or otherwise sought HUD approval competition for the 1998 contract totaling $128,520. In addition, there were no proposals or other documentation supporting that the MHB evaluated proposals before awarding the contract. Also, we did not find any evidence of HUD’s approval for this sole source procurement, as required by 24 CFR 85.36 (g) (2) (ii). As a result, the Housing Board incorrectly obtained services through non- competitive procurement without prior HUD approval. Independent cost In some instances, the MHB did not maintain complete and estimates or cost proper documentation in their procurement files. The and price analysis contract files did not contain supporting documentation to were not performed show that the Board made an independent cost estimate or performed a cost or price analysis for 5 of the 16 contracts reviewed. (See Appendix A for deficiencies.) 01-AT-204-1003 Page 10 Table of Contents Exit Finding The MHB generally agreed with the finding, which was Auditee comments discussed as three findings at the exit conference. The MHB stated it has adopted a new procurement policy and specific procurement directives/procedures that require full and open competition. In addition, the MHB stated it has implemented proper planning procedures and utilized sealed bidding when appropriate; created a new position to analyze procurement activities; and provided or will provide supplementary procurement training for applicable staff in the areas of contract administration, contract solicitations, cost estimates, price analysis, and file documentation. We believe the MHB’s action will strengthen controls over OIG evaluation of the procurement operations. auditee comments Recommendations We recommend that you require the Mobile Housing Board to: 1A. Establish and implement policies and procedures to follow HUD’s procurement requirements and its own procurement policy. The procedures should ensure that: (1) proper procurement planning occurs, including analysis of prior year(s) expenditures and future needs; (2) sealed bidding is used when appropriate; (3) three quotes are solicited from three sources; (4) the lowest responsible bidder is selected; (5) full and open competition is promoted; (6) only authorized staff solicit quotes from potential bidders; (7) invoices are not paid unless an executed contract is properly in place; (8) proper procedures are followed when response solicitations are inadequate; and (9) sole source procurements are not awarded without prior HUD approval. Page 11 01-AT-204-1003 Table of Contents Exit Finding 1B. Provide procurement training for responsible Housing Board personnel that covers contract administration, contract solicitations, cost estimates, price analysis and file documentation. 01-AT-204-1003 Page 12 Table of Contents Exit Management Controls In planning and performing our audit, we considered the Housing Board’s management controls to determine our audit procedures and not to provide assurance on those controls. Management is responsible for establishing effective management controls to ensure that its goals are met. Management controls include the plan of organization, methods and procedures adopted by management to ensure that its goals are met. Management controls include the processes for planning, organization, directing, and controlling program operations. They include the systems for measuring, reporting, and monitoring program performance. We determined that the following management controls were relevant to our audit objectives: Procurement and contracting We assessed controls in place. We obtained an understanding of MHB’s procedures and HUD’s requirements, assessed control risk, and performed various substantive tests of the controls. A significant weakness exists if management controls do not give reasonable assurance that resource use is consistent with laws, regulations, and policies; that resources are safeguarded against waste, loss, and misuse; and that reliable data are obtained, maintained, and fairly disclosed in reports. Based on our review, we believe that MHB had significant weaknesses in management controls. The specific weaknesses are discussed in the finding.
