  5. Implementation Approach • HUD’s delivery approach combines short-term spending on “shovel-ready” projects via formula grants with longer-term focus on program targeting through competition.

  6. Implementation Approach • Given the Recovery Act’s unprecedented cross-cutting scope and aggressive timeframe, the Secretary is viewing the Recovery Act as an opportunity to lay the groundwork for future transformation at HUD. • Leverage common Recovery Act goals to promote “ONE HUD” • Streamline and simplify programs and support processes • Promote innovative cross-agency and cross-discipline collaborations • Reinvigorate the “HUD network” • Build a culture of transparency and accountability

  7. Transparency and Accountability • The Recovery Act also provides specific statutory guidelines, which are defined more clearly in OMB’s implementation guidance.* • Prime and First Tier Funding Recipient Registration • Must obtain a Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) Number (www.hud.gov/offices/adm/grants/duns.cfm) • Must be registered in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) (www.ccr.gov/startregistration.aspx) *See http://www.recovery.gov/files/Initial%20Recovery%20Act%20Implementing%20Guidance.pdf

  8. Transparency and Accountability • The Recovery Act also provides specific statutory guidelines, which are defined more clearly in OMB’s implementation guidance.* • Fund Commingling and Tracking • Funds may be used in conjunction with other funding as necessary to complete projects • However, tracking and reporting must be separate to meet the reporting requirements of the Recovery Act *See http://www.recovery.gov/files/Initial%20Recovery%20Act%20Implementing%20Guidance.pdf
