4 PIC Current State
PIC Design and Funding PIC was designed in as a replacement for both the IBS and the MTCS (form 50058) data systems. Neither offered HA access. PIC has not had money for system development since 2007, only very limited operations and maintenance funding which expires March 31, PIC uses Microsoft SQL Server instead of HUD’s standard Oracle and requires maintaining multiple platforms which is very costly. 5
What does PIC do? PIC allows HAs to: Submit tenant data via the Form HUD This collects and verifies identity and income information for assisted tenants. Maintain building and unit data to provide a picture of our Public Housing inventory for funding. Maintain HA contact information so that HUD can reach HA staff. Submit inventory removal applications. Submit Capital Fund and Section 8 Management Assessment Program certifications. 6
How is PIC currently working PIC facilitates the exchange of information between HAs, HUD and approximately 24 vendors that interface with PIC. HAs are responsible for entering accurate information in PIC under rules at 24 CFR 908 for tenant information, 982 for Housing Choice Voucher, 990 for Operating Subsidy, 905 for Capital Funding, and 970 for Inventory Removals HUD staff approve, monitor, and evaluate the information in PIC to identify and address potential management and occupancy issues. The data in PIC is only as good as the user inputs! 7
