The field of Maintenance Management is changing as rapidly as any other field. As today’s public housing maintenance moves from a “fix it when it’s broke” standard to a “don’t just fix, improve it and optimize it” goal, the Maintenance Manager must understand the growing expectations of the maintenance function and an ever-increasing range of maintenance management techniques.

In April of 1997, HUD streamlined labor standards administration and enforcement protocol and stripped away unnecessary procedures, policies, and paperwork. This training will help you develop organizational and administrative approaches which best work for you while still enabling you to meet your labor standards contractual responsibilities in the administration of HUD-assisted programs as efficiently as possible.

Does HUD’s movement towards project-based management mean that you must implement project-based procurement? The answer is no! No doubt your procurement function and processes will change, but how they change is your decision. This three day seminar will help you to systematically assess your current system, determine if it will meet the needs of mandatory changes and provide you with decision-making tools and implementation techniques for compliance.

The contracting officer (CO) has the primary responsibility for the planning, awarding and management of federally-funded contracts. The CO is responsible for ensuring performance of all necessary actions for effective contracting, ensuring compliance with the requirements of HUD regulations at 24 CFR 85.36, the agency's written procurement policy, State and local law, and any other applicable laws and regulations. The CO is also responsible for enforcing the terms of the contract and safeguarding the interests of the agency and the Federal government in its contractual relationships. In order to perform these responsibilities, the CO must clearly understand the required tasks from procurement planning through contract administration and closeout. His/her technical expertise and project management skills are critical in designing acquisitions that successfully respond to risk, motivate excellent contractor performance, manage cost and schedule constraints and achieve contract goals and objectives.

Why do many maintenance departments continue to fight fires—rushing from one problem to the next making spur of the moment repairs and falling farther and farther behind? Answer: They lack a planned maintenance program. How does maintenance planning allow you to make the transformation from reactive (firefighting) maintenance to proactive (planned) maintenance, if you still have the daily crises? The transformation takes place when you determine how much time you have for planned work and then start using this time to perform preventive maintenance work orders or repair/projects work orders.
