HUD Behind Schedule, Again.

In prior post HERE I reported the planned "Mid January" roll out of a new HUD funded Housing Transportation Affordability portal. This mid January date was an extension of a previously planned December 2012 roll out date. 

Were now at mid March, 90 days past mid December and 60 days past mid January, and the portal has not yet been announced and no updated date is provided on HUD's related website HERE

HUD NOFA on Time Performance Lagging
HUD acknowledges in its Summary of Performance report HERE that it badly missed its target of obligating 90% of NOFA's within 180 days of budget enactment, obligating only 46% of NOFA's within 180 days for funding enacted in FY 2012.

Glaring HUD Regulatory On Time Performance Lag Example
HUD's most glaring missed schedule is for it's proposed affirmatively furthering fair housing regulation, yet to arrive nearing 3 and 1/2 years after the initial target date of November 2009. (See prior post HERE). 

If I could offer a piece of advice that I learned, sometimes painfully, in my 30+ years at HUD it is:
 " UNDER promise, OVER deliver".
