The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) just released the Management and Marketing (M&M) Field Service Manager (FSM) 3.12 Pre Solicitation notice. The volume count and bid sheets are listed below. As opposed to previous iterations of the M&M FSM Pre Solicitations, the M&M FSM 3.12 stands out in that virtually the entire United States is up for grabs. Also remarkable is the fact that HUD has chosen to pre-populate volume counts and include a preformatted bidding sheet. To that point, Foreclosurepedia predicted, months ago, that this would happen.
For years, the beleaguered HUD M&M Program has struggled with attempting to find suitable Prime Vendors to perform services. In fact, the awards made to Innotion Enterprises were a complete and abysmal failure. To that point, though, HUD has been extremely recalcitrant in punishing those profiteers whom have defrauded both HUD and the US Taxpayer as well as Minority Females and Labor. The current HUD M&M Director, Cathy J Baker, opted to allow Innotion Enterprises the ability to continue participating in the bidding upon the HUD M&M Program as opposed to sanctioning them as the law would normally require.
Baker’s recent unilateral award to PK Management of virtually all outstanding contracts have many within contracting circles wondering whether or not she has received kickbacks. To this point, Baker allowed Innotion Enterprises to exit the Illinois contract and refused to put it back up for bid. Baker knowingly awarded Illinois to PK Management whom, only a year ago, was documented to have cost HUD and US Taxpayers millions documented in a recent HUD OIG Report.
PKMG did not always provide property preservation and protection services in accordance with its contract and its own requirements. Specifically, it did not ensure that (1) 82 HUD-owned vacant properties were in ready-to-show condition and (2) 23 custodial properties were free of health and safety hazards and the exteriors were clean, safe, sanitary, and secured. In addition, PKMG billed HUD for properties for which it had not provided property preservation and protection services. As a result, PKMG inappropriately received more than $19,000 in property management fees for properties that were not adequately maintained. In addition, it inappropriately received more than $2,300 in property management fees for properties that it had not serviced. If PKMG does not improve its process for performing property preservation and protection services, we estimate that HUD could inappropriately pay more than $2.5 million in management fees for properties that are not maintained in accordance with its contract requirements over the next year.
Baker also unilaterally awarded two more contracts to PK Management from which Best Assets was allowed, as Innotion Enterprises, to collect millions and not be sanctioned. In both cases, other HUD M&M FSM contenders were available; however, Baker refused to allow any of the dozen or so legally compete. For years, Minority Females and Labor have been disenfranchised from their ability to meaningfully participate within the HUD M&M FSM contracts. Time and again, Foreclosurepedia has documented millions of dollars in fraud perpetrated against these innocent victims as well as US Taxpayers. And it is quite apparent that Secretary Ben Carson is asleep, at the helm, as the Pequod drifts aimlessly in the night. What HUD appears to be telegraphing is that they have lost faith in the entire M&M FSM award process and are moving to re-award the entire United States.
For years, Foreclosurepedia has been at the forefront of changing the HUD M&M FSM Contract. Our groundbreaking fight to remove the illegal electrical backfeeding and tireless efforts to force HUD Prime Vendors to pay in accordance with the Service Contract Act (SCA) have ensured the safety and security of Minority Females and Labor throughout the Mortgage Field Services Industry.
