From the Desk of Don Shea, Director and Contract Administrator

With the summer upon us, I hope everyone is able to take full advantage of everything the Sunshine state has to offer. Maybe even a tropical island or cruise if you have a vacation planned?

It's a pleasure to continue to serve you as the Performance Based Contract Administrator (PBCA) for the state of Florida and the U.S. Virgin islands. HUD recently exercised a 6-month extension under the PBCA Annual Contributions Contract (ACC) that extended our PBCA contracts in both Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands through December 31, 2014. We were previously working with 3-month extensions so the increased timeframe was welcomed. Our hope is that a long term extension will be the next step in the ever changing process. Litigation related to the PBCA Rebid is currently ongoing, so there has been little change in the PBCA landscape.

A significant change from a Housing standpoint, however, is the leadership change at HUD. HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan is expected to be confirmed as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Julian Castro, the Mayor of San Antonio, has been nominated as Donovan's successor.

Myself, as well as other NTHDC staff will be attending the SAHMA Regional Conference in Ft Lauderdale in August. For those attending, we are glad to meet you and answer any questions you may have.

As we have stated before, we are here to serve you as the PBCA and we look forward to a continued partnership in helping to provide affordable housing to those in need.
