EIV Policies and Procedures

The Owner/Agent is required to develop policies and procedures regarding securing EIV data and EIV use. These policies, at a minimum, must address the following:

  • EIV access may only be granted to individuals with a need to access the data
  • A current, signed, and dated HUD-9887/9887A must be on file before EIV data is accessed for a resident
  • EIV data is protected by the Privacy Act and therefore measures must be in place to safeguard EIV data
  • EIV use must be restricted to official business purposes only
  • EIV must be used in uniform manner and cannot be used selectively to target certain individuals, therefore the frequency and/or timeframes for which Income Reports and Verification Reports will be accessed must be outlined
