HUD To Audit PHA FInances And Operations

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development today notified the Philadelphia Housing Authority Board that they would be conducting an audit of PHA's financial and management operations.

Check out HUD's letter to PHA Board Chairman John Street here. According to the letter, HUD will be sending a team to PHA immediately with plans to report back in 60 days. HUD asked PHA not to make any changes to senior management during the audit.

"We are very concerned about the appropriate use of taxpayer dollars and so will be paying close attention to the team's findings," states the letter from deputy HUD Secretary Ron Sims, which was also sent to the rest of the board, the mayor and city controller.
