WASHINGTON - All HUD computer systems are fully tested and ready for the year 2000.

Services such as rental assistance subsidy payments, Federal Housing Administration mortgage insurance processing, and services for public housing residents and the elderly are expected to continue without interruption when the year 2000 begins. HUD has performed successful Year 2000 testing of these programs and has tested contingency plans to deal with problems that might arise.

HUD used Integrated Certification Testing (ICeT) to ensure that its business transactions and 50 critical automated systems will continue to operate. This was a complex testing process that took place from May through mid-October.

In addition to testing its own business systems, HUD also conducted four separate Year 2000 Status and Assessment surveys to assess the readiness of its business partners, with a special focus on the largest public housing authorities.
