To prepare the staff for upcoming changes and ensure readiness, the organization is conducting a training program focused on NSPIRE protocols. This training will provide comprehensive instruction on the UPCS (Uniform Physical Condition Standards) protocols, which are the defect definitions used in HUD REAC PASS inspections. By simplifying the complex UPCS concepts, the two-day training class will empower staff members to not only conduct their own annual UPCS inspections but also effectively interpret the resulting data. This enhanced understanding will enable them to prioritize, plan, and budget in a proactive manner, incorporating realistic and cost-effective suggestions and recommendations for REAC PASS & UPCS implementation in both their daily operations and long-term functions.

The HUD REAC PASS protocol has become the standard of property inspections for multiple dwelling housing throughout the country. REAC PASS scores allow the condition of both private and public owned, subsidized, and insured properties across the country to be compared within one standard scoring system. HUD also requires the use of the REAC PASS UPCS protocols in public housing during annual inspections (replaced HQS). At this training, personnel will learn how to improve not only your organization’s housing quality, but also your REAC PASS inspection scores. Why is this relevant? Because your REAC PASS performance impacts the funding of your PHA or the valuing of your multifamily properties! Don’t miss this invaluable opportunity to educate your staff on the PASS subsystem! Each participant receives a colorful manual containing the UPCS Protocols in an easily understood layout, the latest protocol changes, detailed information on each defect’s scoring relevance, forms and discussions on the appeal process, a simple overview about how PASS inspections are performed, and also participate in identifying real defect examples. Eliminate questions and confusion by putting the expertise of The Inspection Group to work for you and allow us to install UPCS protocols into your organization’s culture!
