HCD should continue its efforts to monitor recipients of housing bond funds by promptly communicating concerns and findings identified during on site visits conducted for its CalHome Program and ensure that recipients provide a timely response to the concerns and findings.
HCD stated that it has adopted a risk-based, on-site monitoring approach for its CalHome and Supportive Housing programs similar to the monitoring methodology used for the Emergency Housing Program and it provided a copy of its risk assessment tool. Further, HCD’s current manager developed and implemented a centralized tracking log for the site monitoring, which contains the name of the recipient (contractor) and the dates of the following: site visit and completion, letter of findings, and clearance of findings. In addition, on April 1, 2010, HCD began tracking this same information in the Consolidated Automated Program Enterprise System (CAPES). (2011-046, p. 197).
