From Scott Precourt at US Housing Consultants...
As part of the Government-wide shutdown, the Real Estate Assessment Center Technical Assistance Center (REAC TAC) will shut down as of 8:30pm Eastern time Monday, September 30, 2013. For more information on when the REAC TAC will be reopened, please refer to the website for the Office of Personnel Management to see when the Federal Government will end the shutdown at www.opm.gov.
This means that all REAC Inspections will be delayed during the government shutdown. As the shutdown could be a few hours, days, or weeks - the future appears to be uncertain as of this moment. If you have a REAC Inspection on or after October 1, 2013, you should monitor the shutdown progress, but we would recommend that you still continue to prepare for the inspection as the inspection could go forward if government activity resumes.
