Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Technology Solution


Description:

HTFC seeks qualified firms or individuals (Proposers) to provide a replacement solution for its current HCV technology system known as the SHCVS.  The Proposer(s) selected through this RFP process (“Contractor(s)”) will customize a new solution for HTFC to replace SHCVS (“Solution” or “Project”), ideally utilizing proven technology already in use by other PHAs elsewhere in the United States.  The Solution must be a comprehensive, real-time data solution that will allow for tracking, processing, and reporting of all HUD-defined actions, and the management of all peripheral aspects of the HCV program (Program).  Proposers must demonstrate sufficient expertise and past performance, both in applying federal Section 8 rules and in providing technology solutions capable of managing complex workflows and functions.

The Proposer must also demonstrate the ability to: 1) host and maintain the Solution in a secure environment on an ongoing basis through a maintenance contract; 2) provide ongoing help-desk support and training for staff at multiple locations; and 3) update the system in a timely manner in response to changes in HUD’s own Section 8 requirements and data systems.

The Solution must be adaptable to the ever-changing regulatory landscape of affordable housing.  Recent federal legislation has provided considerable flexibility to PHAs in administering HCV programs.  Regulations related to the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act (HOTMA), Small Area Fair Market Rents (SAFMRs), the Moving to Work (MTW) Demonstration Program, and various streamlining efforts afford opportunities for PHAs to regularly reassess the effectiveness of their own policies and operating procedures.  The desired Solution for HTFC will offer both the structure and flexibility needed to succeed in this environment.

This RFP is being issued as a follow up to a Request for Information (RFI) that was issued on August 15, 2017 titled Section 8 Database Management System.  Proposers responding to this RFP are not required to have participated in that RFI process.  All qualified Proposers are encouraged to apply.
