HUD Wants to Move SAMS Platform to Cloud
The Department of Housing and Urban Development is seeking information on a cloud-based technical solution for its Single Family Acquired Asset Management System.
The SAMS is a legacy system written in proprietary code that tracks and reports on all HUD homes for sale, and processes almost all financial transactions related to those homes. According to HUD's request for information, the new SAMS software would streamline the agency’s processes for collecting debts and consulting services, MeriTalk reported Monday.
HUD added that moving the software to the cloud will provide "management information needed for program oversight and compliance with Congressional, auditor, and other requests." The agency said the new system must be able to handle HUD's requirements and must comply with the HUD Enterprise Architecture standards. It must also be able to track acquired property, maintain property, dispose of property, and monitor and report the status of inventory.
HUD intends to award a contract for the effort by the end of calendar year 2020. Responses to the RFI are due March 24.
