Update on Status of PBCA Re-bid
On March 25, 2014, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals (the Court) ruled in favor of the claim challenging the legality of HUD’s 2013 rebid of the PBCA contracts through a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA). The Court determined that PBCA contracts are procurement contracts that are subject to federal procurement laws. The Court ordered the United States Court of Federal Claims to issue an order in effect enjoining HUD from moving forward with awards HUD previously made under the NOFA in August 2013, and requiring a new rebid to be conducted under the Competition in Contracting Act (CICA). On June 23, 2014, HUD filed a petition for rehearing. We will update this posting as further infomration becomes available. Read the opinion.
As a result, SHCC remains your PBCA in Texas and Arkansas. HUD has extended our contract through December 30, 2014. We will update our website with any additional developments.
