Physical Assessment Subsystem (PASS)
Reverse Auction Program (RAP)

The PIH-REAC Reverse Auction Program (RAP) involves a process of securing property inspection services for HUD-assisted housing. An auction is conducted with the use of a reverse auction vendor website and allows participants to bid down, as opposed to the traditional auction which requires submitting sequentially higher bids. An award is made to an eligible contractor with the lowest bid at the close of the auction. The contractor then schedules and performs the property inspections in accordance with Uniform Physical Condition Standards (UPCS) protocol.


The Reverse Auction Program has no auctions planned at this time.
