Our contracting framework

HUD has developed a simpler and more consistent way of contracting for housing. Our contract framework reflects a new relationship-based way of working together.

About the framework

In creating our new public housing contract framework we've:

  • listened to providers and staff feedback
  • run workshops with providers and agencies, and
  • worked with legal experts.

Under this framework, partners will sign:

  • a single overarching Relationship Agreement which sets the tone and principles for how HUD and its partner will work together
  • a straightforward Services Agreement each time a product or service is purchased by HUD.
