HUD 3.5: The Collapse Of Legal Contracting – R-ATL-02006

You may view the La Rosa Protest at the Bottom of the Article. For years now, Craig Karnes Director of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development‘s Marketing and MaintenanManagement (M&M)  has been doing his best to ensure that no small business will be awarded the HUD M&M 3.5 Contract. As you can see, there are currently 10 Open Protests against the issuance of the HUD M&M 3.5 to BLB Resources and Matt Martin Real Estate Management (MMREM).

The question on everyone’s mind is when is the Obama Administration going to step in and relieve Craig Karnes of duty. I don’t know. I actually attempted to reach out and talk to him as many Brokers are reaching out to me asking questions.

As he will not respond to US Citizen’s emails and there is no other way of Brokers obtaining information, I have released the LaRosa Protest at the bottom of this Article.

Today, both the US Department of Housing and Urban Development and the US Department of Commerce began a deep drill down of my website pertaining to all information pertaining to the HUD 3.5 and Craig Karnes. Each of these White House Cabinet Level probes originated in Washington, DC. I normally do not post intelligence like this; however, when Craig Karnes refused to return an email from me, a US Citizen, I realized that this may be an attempt to put forth a Chilling Effect Upon Free Speech.

 The only thing that is certain is that work will continue for at least another 4-6 months, as HUD has 6 new GAO protests to resolve regarding 3.5 along with 4 additional ones. The protests aren’t due for verdict until January, and HUD can obtain extensions if need be. And then other protests can be filed. Also, most folks are still in the game for a 3.5 award under the illegitimate disguise/proxy of Key Solutions, but if Key gets an award (resulting from the prospective BLB and/or MMREM awards being overturned) it will be quickly overturned by an SBA size standard protest (the Yamamoto’s seem to have forgotten about FAR part 19).

I am releasing the LaRosa Protest today. I think that keeping the lid on this thing is counterproductive. While it is apparent to me that LaRosa was a proxy for several other firms, it has excellent information. I am additionally contemplating taking the extraordinary step of releasing this weekend the Confidential Procurement Law Division Internal Memorandum with respect to the Contracting Process wherein HUD Lawyers lay out precisely how to side step any and all assaults upon the awards.

Please consider donating to Foreclosurepedia so that we may begin to shift more attention to the Brokers as well as Contractors.
