24 CFR 941.602 - Applicability of other requirements.
(a) Relationship of this subpart to other requirements in 24 CFR part 941. The requirements contained in this subpart apply only to the development of public housing units using mixed-finance development methods under this subpart and to the operation of public housing units that are owned, or that will be owned, by an owner entity under this subpart. Other requirements for the development of public housing, as set forth in subparts A through E of this part, shall not apply to the development of public housing units pursuant to this subpart, except as may be required by HUD. Applicable requirements include, but shall not be limited to, the following:
(1) Section 941.103 (“Definitions”) (definitions of the following terms only shall apply to this subpart: “Annual Contributions Contract (ACC),” “cooperation agreement,” “design documents,” “reformulation,” and “Total Development Cost (TDC).”
(2) Section 941.201 (“PHA eligibility”) (except that specific requirements governing the cooperation agreement, as set forth in § 941.201(c), shall be determined in accordance with this subpart);
(3) Section 941.202 (“Site and neighborhood standards”);
(4) Section 941.203 (“Design and construction standards”);
(5) Section 941.205 (“PHA contracts”) (except that the reference to “development related contracts entered into by the PHA” shall be construed to mean “development related contracts entered into by the PHA or the owner entity”);
(6) Section 941.207 (“Relocation and acquisition”);
(7) Section 941.208 (“Other Federal requirements”);
(8) Section 941.209 (“Audit”);
(9) Section 941.306 (“Maximum development cost”);
(10) Section 941.402 (“Project design and construction”);
(11) Section 941.403 (“Acceptance of work and contract settlement”);
(12) Section 941.404 (“Completion of development”); and
(13) Section 941.501 (“HUD review of PHA performance; sanctions”).
(b) Procedure in the event of a conflict between requirements. In the event of a conflict between a requirement contained in this subpart and an applicable requirement set forth in subparts A through E of this part, the requirements of this subpart shall apply, unless HUD otherwise so determines in writing.
(c) HUD approval. For purposes of this subpart only, any action or approval that is required to be taken or provided by HUD or by the HUD field office, pursuant to a requirement set forth in subparts A through F of this part, shall be construed to mean that HUD Headquarters shall take such action or provide such approval, unless the field office is authorized in writing by Headquarters to carry out a specific function under this subpart.
(d) Applicability of requirements pursuant to 24 CFR part 85. The requirements of 24 CFR part 85 are applicable to this subpart, subject to the following two provisos:
(1) A PHA may select a partner using competitive proposal procedures for qualifications-based procurement (subject to negotiation of fair and reasonable compensation, including TDC and other applicable cost limitations);
(2) An owner entity (which, as a private entity, would normally not be subject to part 24 CFR part 85) shall be required to comply with 24 CFR part 85 if HUD determines that the PHA or PHA instrumentality exercises significant functions within the owner entity with respect to managing the development of the proposed units. HUD may, on a case-by-case basis, exempt such an owner entity from the need to comply with 24 CFR part 85 if it determines that the owner entity has developed an acceptable alternative procurement plan.
