Performance Based Contract Administration

Quadel has trained and provided technical assistance services to the HUD-assisted multifamily housing industry for more than 25 years.  When HUD initiated the Performance Based Contract Administration (PBCA) program in 2000, Quadel was uniquely well prepared to support this ambitious asset management initiative focusing on ensuring the physical quality, financial viability, and program integrity of Section 8.

Quadel currently partners with public agencies in Indiana and North Carolina to oversee owner compliance with Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) Contracts totaling more than 50,000 affordable housing units.  In each of these PBCA operations, Quadel is responsible for performing core tasks that ensure the program serves eligible households, that owners comply with HAP Contract requirements, and that tenant concerns are promptly addressed. For each property in its portfolio Quadel conducts an annual on-site review, evaluates and approves monthly subsidy vouchers, processes owner requests for rent adjustments and contract renewals, and follows up on resident concerns and deficiencies identified in HUD physical inspections.
To meet the performance requirements of the PBCA initiative, Quadel developed a proprietary Automated Contract Administration Processing (ACAP) system that tracks and prioritizes work activities for staff and provides the opportunity for our public sector partners and HUD to have on-line access to key documents and reports. Since PBCA operations began, Quadel and its public sector partners in four states have approved and paid to owners more than $6 billion in Section 8 subsidy funds.
