Title: Interior Regional Housing Authority�s Management of a Rehabilitation Project at the Native Village of Fort Yukon, Fairbanks, Alaska

Interior Regional Housing Authority (IRHA) did not have adequate management systems to administer a housing rehabilitation project assisted with Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA) funds in accordance with federal regulations. Specifically, IRHA had weak management controls and did not (1) have a formal process by which all parties would approve changes to the original work, (2) adequately supervise foremen at the project, and (3) have an accounting system that assigned costs to individual houses. Consequently, the project had $385,514 in cost overruns and IRHA did not know the extent of the work being done in Fort Yukon or have up-to-date information about how much it cost. Moreover, IRHA could not provide the Native Village of Fort Yukon or HUD�s Alaska Office of Native American Programs (AONAP), who have oversight responsibility, with accurate progress reports.
