Tuesday Tip: Electronic Transmission for MORs


Posted On: September 29, 2020

Vickie discusses Electronic Transmission for MORs in this week’s Tuesday Tip.

Can the files for MORs be sent electronically?

Yes. Though, we suggest that you get with the agency that conducts your MOR (HUD or your Contract Administrator) to determine if you CAN transmit the files to them electronically. You will need to read Housing Notice H 20-4 in its entirety for a full understanding of what is required AND reach out to HUD or the Contract Administrator staff to do a trial run.

Also, industry partners choosing to use electronic transmission of documents must do so in compliance with federal, state, and local laws. We advise owners and agents to consult with their legal staff about these laws. Additionally, the housing notice states that when transmitting documents electronically, partners must use the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) compliant methods. The documents must be placed inside an encrypted wrapper, with an encrypted password.  They must also meet HUD’s security requirements.

Be sure to read Housing Notice H 20-4 to address your questions on Electronic Transmission for MORs. Take a look back at the Tuesday Tips from earlier this year on MORs and Housing Notice H 20-4.

And remember, Housing Notice 20-4 is NOT mandatory.  It may not work for everyone. Owners and agents may continue to receive documents and process documents in a paper format if they prefer.

Have a question or idea that you think would be a good topic to discuss on Tuesday Tip?
