 -   Reporting Requirements for Cooperative Owners The Office of Asset Management has determined that all HUD insured and/or assisted cooperatives must submit financial statements audited in accordance with OMB Circular A-133 for the fiscal year ending 12/31/09 and thereafter. Here is a link to the official memorandum: http://www.hud.gov/offices/reac/products/fass/

On December 31, 2009 the Office of Asset Management will run a production utility that will change the mortgagor type of all cooperative owners to a nonprofit. Beginning January 1, 2010 cooperative owners will no longer be able to file audits under the Inspector General's Consolidated Audit Guide IG2000.04. Audits for cooperative owners will have to be filed under OMB Circular A-133.

 -   Verification Screen

The Verification screen in FASSUB requires submitters to verify certain critical information that is pulled from HUD's IREMS database (e.g. reporting period, mortgagor type, tax identification number, etc.). It is very important that this information be checked for accuracy and that any errors be corrected before a draft submission template is created. If financial statements are submitted with inaccurate reporting periods or other incorrect information then we must archive them and the owner must resubmit. If there are errors in ownership information the owner must correct these errors in the Active Partners Performance System (APPS). Instructions are available at


If there are errors in the reporting period you should contact your local project manager.
