1 WASS EXPRESS TUTORIAL Web Access Security System

2 What Is WASS? WASS stands for web access security system. The purpose of WASS is to provide secure access to the HUD systems environment by their trusted business partners and internal HUD users. Currently, WASS provides access to over 15 systems for external users and over 20 systems for internal users.

3 How Does WASS Relate to You? There are over 57,000 users who access HUD systems annually. Most WASS users are regular USERS. A regular USER is a user who has a role and actions assigned to them by their COORDINATOR. A COORDINATOR represents one or more of HUDs business partners and is a user whose role is to ensure system security and ensure that users are properly assigned system privileges.

4 How Do I Get Access to WASS and the HUD Systems? To access WASS you must first be a registered user. Depending on whether you are an internal HUD user or an external HUD user your registration option will vary. For external users, to register go to the REAC (Real Estate Assessment Center) homepage at the following URL: To access WASS you must first be a registered user.
