PCHA Receives High Performing Score from HUD!

The Pinellas County Housing Authority has once again been named a "High Performer" by HUD's Real Estate Assessment Center. PCHA received a score of 99 out of 100 possible points. The Housing Authority earned their designation as a PHAS High Performer through detailed measures of their performances as a public housing agency. 

HUD’s Public Housing Assessment System (PHAS) is based on four indicators: physical inspection, financial condition, management operations, and resident satisfaction and service.  Following the annual PHAS review, the system produces a score that reflects the PHA's overall management performance. 

Debra Johnson, PCHA’s Executive Director stated "I'm very proud of PCHA's outstanding staff.  They work diligently throughout the year to assure that we achieve excellent performance in each indicator."

PCHA’s Purchasing and Contracts Department Receives Best Practices Award from the Florida Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials

The Pinellas County Housing Authority’s Purchasing and Contracts Department received a Best Practices Award from the Florida Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials for contractor education and outreach.

Competition in purchasing is good for business. When firms compete with each other, businesses, including housing authorities, get the best possible prices, quantity and quality of goods and services. In its efforts to increase the number of vendors and contractors responding to agency-wide procurements, PCHA’s Purchasing and Contracts Department implemented a workshop series to help contractors and vendors understand the bidding process and required forms, and to clear misconceptions.

The workshop series is entitled “How to do Business with PCHA”. “Contractors in attendance are also encouraged to attend a second workshop series covering Davis-Bacon Requirements to learn more information relating to the Davis-Bacon Wage Act and contract documentation requirements at PCHA” said Rhonda Allen, Director of Purchasing and Contracts.

The Educational Contractor Workshops help to bridge the gap between HUD/Housing Authority requirements, and contractor understanding and application of the requirements. “The workshops are both well-presented and well-received” said Debra Johnson, Executive Director. As a result of these workshops, competition continues to increase as new vendors are added to PCHA’s Master Vendor List, and fewer errors are noted in contractor submissions. Congratulations to PCHA’s entire Procurement and Contracting team!

PCHA’s next “How to do Business with PCHA” workshop for contractors is scheduled for September 19th from 3 PM to 5 PM. All vendors and contractors are encouraged to attend. To RSVP please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
