Integrity Review

Integrity Review

The Integrity Review process includes sponsor review and Executive Order No. 50 (E.O. 50). Qualifying participants in HPD transactions must complete a Compliance Package in its entirety to fulfill their sponsor review and when applicable, E.O. 50 preconstruction Integrity Review requirements.

The Integrity Review process is intended to verify the integrity of individuals and entities seeking to do business with HPD (e.g., as developers or contractors). Through a series of disclosure statement reviews and background checks, HPD’s Integrity Review Unit works to ensure that sponsors are honest, reliable stewards of public resources. Also, during the Integrity Review process, HPD staff analyze the physical and financial health of sponsors’ property portfolios and work with sponsors to ensure that corrective actions have been taken to address outstanding violations and arrears prior to loan closing. In addition, E.O. 50 requires that all entities entering a contractual relationship with the City, including prevailing wage and non-prevailing wage contracts do not discriminate against employees or job applicants in any employment decisions or any other term or condition of employment.

Completing the Integrity Review process in a timely and responsive manner can reduce the risk of loan closing delays as well as project suspensions or cancellations. Incomplete submissions will not be accepted.

HPD may request additional information based on its review, including corrective action taken or any issues identified with the physical or financial health of a sponsor’s property portfolio.

Submit Pre-Transaction Affidavit

Two weeks prior to loan closing, sponsors are required to submit a Pre-Transaction Affidavit affirming that there have been no significant changes to the project or the sponsor's ability to proceed with the project since the completion of the Integrity Review process.
