HUD indicated that they are actually working on some basic contract language for recipients to include in their contracting documents. This is a major accomplishment on HUD’s part because the final rule said they were not providing anything. Again, this will help navigate the many challenges of how to introduce the new Benchmarks to contractors and sub-contractors.
Even something very basic will provide a starting point for all of us to then build our individual expectations around that language. So once more, I strongly recommend you not start developing that language until HUD releases their version.
