SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance section 7(p) of the Department of Housing and Urban Development Act (42 U.S.C. 3535(p)), a plan for the reorganization of any HUD regional, area, insuring, or other field office may take effect only upon the expiration of 90 days after publication in the Federal Register of a cost-benefit analysis of the effects of the plan on each HUD office involved. Such costbenefit analysis shall include, but not be limited to (1) an estimate of cost savings supported by background information detailing the source and substantiating the amount of the savings; (2) an estimate of the additional cost which will result from the reorganization; (3) a study of the impact on the local economy; and (4) an estimate of the effect of the reorganization on the availability, accessibility, and quality of services provided for recipients of those services. Where any of the factors cannot be quantified, the HUD shall provide a statement on the nature and extent of those factors in the cost-benefit analysis. Cost Benefit Analysis A. Background In order to most effectively use its human capital and other resources, the Office of Multifamily Housing (MFH) has been actively working to make PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25293 Amount funded 1,000,000.00 1,000,000.00 1,000,000.00 750,000.00 400,000.00 350,000.00 fundamental changes to its operating model to improve effectiveness and efficiency and to maximize opportunities to reshape and realign its workforce. Important progress has been made to date, including improving productivity, reducing loan cycle times, increasing employee engagement, and introducing a more risk-based approach to asset management activities. However, several fundamental challenges remain, including a fragmented and unwieldy organizational structure antiquated systems and processes, and role specification which allows for little flexibility in allowing employees to perform various roles while responding to spikes and ebbs in workload. MFH proposes implementation of 3 categories of changes that will significantly improve the delivery model, help better manage risk and lead to an annual cost savings of an estimated $47M upon complete implementation. These changes include the following: (1) Streamline the organizational structure; (2) Introduce risk-based processing across MFH and launch greater workload sharing and balancing; (3) Create new roles and abolish outdated or under-utilized positions. The goal is to fully implement these changes by the end of fiscal year (FY) 2016. The reorganization is expected to enhance operational efficiency, as well as improve the service provided to HUD’s customers. B. Description of Proposed Changes Under the proposed structure, Headquarters’ business units will be consolidated and reduced from 6 separate offices to 4. In the field, MFH will consolidate 17 Hubs to 5 Hub offices and 5 satellite offices reporting to the Hubs. The other 7 Hubs and 34 program centers will be consolidated into the remaining 10 offices (5 Hub offices and 5 satellite offices).
