[Update] HUD posted the following on their website today.
Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements 18 (SSAE 18)
FASSUB requires that audited submissions contain an attestation in which a CPA compares the electronic submission with the hard copy audit report. In April of 2016 the AICPA released Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements 18 (SSAE 18). The FASS-FHA team revised the language for the Independent Accountant’s Report on Applying Agreed-Upon Procedure to conform with the AICPA’s revised guidance. The changes to the attestation reports were implemented on October 14, 2017.
October 16, 2017
REAC/FASSUB (Multifamily) has updated their system to reflect new language in the Agreed-Upon Procedures Reports (AUP). AHACPA has created new downloadable reports with the updated language. AHACPA’s sample reports are available for Multifamily Profit-Motivated (.docx* / .pdf) and Multifamily Non-Profit (.docx* / .pdf) entities. To date, we are unaware of HUD making similar updates to the FHA-LEAP AUP Reports. However, we have created a sample report for FHA-lenders (.docx* / .pdf) based on the multifamily report.
*.docx files can be downloaded by AHACPA members after logging in.
