Cost Certifications on New Construction for HUD-Insured Assisted Living Facilities and Multifamily Properties

The cost certification is the basis for U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to determine the project’s actual development cost and the maximum insurable mortgage. This is necessary before a project may proceed to final formal endorsement and is important when engaging in multifamily projects.

Ziner & Murphy has over 20 years of experience performing these cost certifications throughout the country. Trust in our CPAs to navigate you through this complex and time-sensitive process.

Overhead Audits for Massachusetts DOT Consultants

Architectural and Engineering Consulting firms must submit an Audited Overhead Rate to the Audit Operations Section on an annual basis. An Independent Certified Public Accountant (CPA) must conduct this audit. Ziner & Murphy CPAs are highly skilled at these audits.

It is the responsibility of the consultant to submit an audit report each year. MassDOT will not send a notice. Don’t let MassDOT reject your contract proposals because they do not meet all prequalification requirements. Let Ziner & Murphy perform your audit, so you can compete for the contracts.
