NEW FASS SUBMISSION REQUIREMENT
A Unique IPA Identifier (UII) is needed on all submissions.
A UII is a randomly generated, permanently assigned, five-digit number that HUD will use to identify the IPA offices that perform audit and attestation services for PHAs, MFs, and lenders. The UII will allow HUD to track IPA office workload more effectively. This information will permit REAC to select firms for review based on relative risk to HUD, therefore using HUD's resources more efficiently.
Before you can obtain a UII, you must be registered within HUD secure systems. Please allow up to two weeks to complete the registration process.
Complete registration instructions and registration forms for Multifamily Housing Entities, Public Housing Agencies, and lenders can be viewed by selecting online systems from the topic menu on the left.
|IPAs and State Auditor Offices - Only one UII will be assigned per IPA office; individuals within an office do not need to obtain a UII. If you are a sole practitioner, you will need a UII for your practice.|
|MF project owners, PHAs and SF lenders|
FOR PHAs-- HUD will require that PHA audited financial submissions and attestations performed on PHA audited financial submissions that are received by the FASS system as of January 22, 2001, include the UII.
FOR MF Projects-- HUD will require that Multifamily audited financial submissions and attestations performed on MF audited financial submissions received by the FASS system as of February 5, 2001, include a UII.
FOR SF Lenders-- HUD will require that all Single Family lender audited financial submissions and attestations performed on Lender audited financial submissions received by the LASS system as of September 30, 2002, include a UII.
NOTE: PHAs/MF projects/SF lenders-- Your IPA office may be contacting you for assistance in registering for a HUD secure systems User ID. If you are required to submit an audited financial submission, you must contact your IPA office for its UII before completing your submission.
