The internal view and risk management is expected to be provided and accomplished by the contractor through a series of risk management and financial reports to be known as Commercial Capital Assessment Projections (CCAP). This Statement of Objectives (SOO): (1) describes the GI/SRI and MMIF and the cash flows to and from it; (2) describes the operating cycle and data sources contemplated for CCAP; and, (3) identifies eight tasks, four technical and two program objectives for CCAP as a basis for contractor proposals. 1. PURPOSE: The purpose of CCAP is to perform commercial portfolio risk analytics and conduct risk modeling in support of the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD's) mission of providing affordable Multifamily housing and medical care services to underserved populations across the United States while safeguarding capital levels mandated by Congress. 2. SCOPE: The scope of this SOO is HUD commercial loan program performance modeling applying state of the art econometric, multivariate statistical and data mining techniques applied to the multifamily and healthcare portfolios for use in the President's Budget and for risk management purposes. CCAP covers all accumulated current and future capital resources and cash flows and related risks associated with GI/SRI and a small applicable portion of the MMI. 3. BACKGROUND: Transactions associated with the FHA's guarantee programs for commercial (commercial includes multifamily apartment complexes, hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living residences, Board and Care facilities) mortgages are recorded in an account of the federal government known as the GI/SRI. FHA has insured over 45,000 mortgages through the GI/SRI since 1970 of which over 13,000 are currently active. Aggregate insurance in force was $90 billion as of 9/30/14. Cash flows on these insurance policies result from both FHA's insurance operations and from transactions mandated by federal credit reform. Aggregate GI/SRI cash flows and performance measures are reported monthly. CCAP will ensure that the cash flows and valuations arising from the mortgage insurance and federal credit reform transactions of the General and Special Risk Insurance Fund (GI/SRI) and the level, direction, and implications of the risks to the GI/SRI are made appropriately transparent and comprehensible as a basis for decisions. Differences between previously forecast and subsequent actual values will be evaluated for out-of -tolerance outcomes and adjustments to models will be made where appropriate. New reports and forecasts will be generated after the current accuracy and reliability of CCAP components has been established. CCAP shall have a monthly operating cycle. New input data from FHA will be updated each month. Information drawn from FHA is the transfer of data the contractor might need from FHA. This pertains specifically to the FHA data subject to the GI/SRI Funds for which CCAP is requesting portfolio, valuation, and risk modeling. FHA will execute the data transfers dependent on the contractor's data needs and frequency. It is anticipated this data will be transferred on a regular basis, preferably monthly. Other appropriate sources such as data service providers of commercial data like REIS will be updated quarterly.The contractor provides a quarterly Excel file to HUD so the MFRA and OPIIS models can be updated. Without the quarterly updates the Government is unable to run the models which produce current ranking and ranking of all commercial properties. REIS data will be provided by HUD if necessary. New input data as needed for special projects principally at the direction of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will also be updated on a basis to be determined as the need arises. Generally such new inputs are required only once per year. The Contractor shall provide a sound and effective model risk management to CCAP in accordance with principles and standards such as those established by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (AB-2013-07-Model-Risk-Management-Guidance) and The Federal Reserve Board and The Comptroller of the Currency (Supervisory Guidance on Model Risk Management). The Contractor shall also develop, document, operate and manage the CCAP in accordance with all applicable OMB Circulars (A-11, A-123 and A-129 (OMB Circulars)), and all applicable Federal Accounting and Audit Standards (Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board (FASAB) Handbook). 4. PERFORMANCE OBJECTIVES Task Objectives: 1.

TECHNICAL OBJECTIVES: 1. Model Risk Management: Each CCAP task objective must be achieved within a contractor-provided framework effectively designed to manage model risk to within tolerable levels. Tolerable levels will be mutually determined by the Office of Risk Management and Regulatory Affairs (ORMRA) and the contractor at the onset of the contract and reflected in the management plan. 2. Transparency: CCAP must be transparent and easy to use without the help of the contractor. Each component of the CCAP must be adequately documented so as to: (1) prevent key person or contractor dependency; (2) enable proper operation; (3) facilitate independent review with minimal contractor assistance required; and, (4) reduce risk when report or model is changed. 3. Credibility: All information produced by each CCAP component must be authoritatively credible as evidenced by professional acceptance as best practices of the methods used to produce the information and the recognized expertise of the Contractor in the fields of financial analysis and modeling, financial risk management, mortgage analytics and mortgage insurance and as required by FHA, OMB, or other governmental standards (see Background above). All inputs for loan guaranty liability must conform to all accounting and audit standards, and other authoritative pronouncements applicable to FHA and conform to concepts and guidance provided by the OMB. Inputs: all risk measurement and model assumptions and data must be appropriate, accurate and complete. Appropriate, accurate and complete will be determined by the ORMRA and reflected in the management plan. Compliance for each CCAP component must at all times be fully compliant with all applicable laws, regulations, circulars, accounting and audit standards and related guidance and other authoritative pronouncements. The contractor must provide documentary evidence of authoritative knowledge and successful experience at designing, developing, testing, documenting, implementing, operating and maintaining financial risk measurement, econometric, statistical forecasting, and management models to applicable federal standards. 4. Outputs: All information generated by the CCAP must include a brief, thorough assessment of its accuracy and reliability. Such assessments will include monthly comparisons of predicted and actual outcomes to ensure that differences remain within tolerances. Tolerances will be mutually determined by the ORMRA and the contractor and reflected in the management plan. 6. PROGRAM OBJECTIVES: 1. Ownership: Ownership: FHA must own all versions of the CCAP processes, models, reports, data and related documentation. The contractor is required to host the models, tools, and data in a secure location to FHA.

  INL SAN SALVADOR BUILD PARTNER NATION CAPACITY SERIES "HEROES DE EL SALVADOR" SCOPE OF WORK FOR BACKPACK SCHOOL KITS (MOCHILA) Part 1  General Information  1.  General:  This is a contract to provide print products in the form of backpacks and school kits to support the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) and the Policia National Civil (PNC). The Government shall not exercise any supervision or control over the contract service providers performing the services herein.  Such contract service providers shall be accountable solely to the Contractor who, in turn is responsible to the Government. 1.1 INTRODUCTION: The contractor shall provide all personnel, equipment, supplies, facilities, transportation, tools, materials, supervision, and other items necessary to perform print production support as defined in this Scope of Work except for those items specified as government furnished property and services.  The contractor shall perform to the standards in this contract. 1.2 BACKGROUND: This media campaign aims to change the behavior of a specific Target Audience (TA) within Salvadoran society in order to Build Partner Nation Image of the PNC. Through empirically supported techniques of persuasion, the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) will influence the TA to increase the amount of support given by the population to the PNC. The series "Heroes de El Salvador" will showcase the Police as Heroes of El Salvador by highlighting their daily sacrifice, service, and support to the citizens of El Salvador.  "Heroes de El Salvador" is going to be directed at a Salvadoran population that, through research, has been found to be the most susceptible. The audience identified will have the greatest positive impact in favor of the Police-parents of young kids within the ages of 10 to 14 years old. Every message, image, and argument that is used will be oriented toward gaining the trust and support of the population in favor of the Police in an effort to aid their daily fight against illegal criminal activities and Violent Extreme Organizations (i.e.: MS13 and Barrio 18) in El Salvador.   The proposed media campaign was developed by Salvadoran PNC leadership. Using local ideas and reflecting local priorities, INL requests funding for the attached $770,000 campaign, which sequences a variety of products over a 12-month period, beginning with a televised address by President Sanchez Ceren tentatively planned for August 2016.  The address will be followed by TV and radio ads, successive waves of SMS and social media messaging, dissemination of PNC-branded school supplies and soccer balls to local communities.  Billboards, street signs, and truck wraps will round out visibility of the campaign, providing sustained positive imaging of the PNC to balance out the negative press generated by ongoing violence.  2. PERIOD OF PERFORMANCE:  The period of performance will be a one-time service contract to produce, print, and deliver 10,000 backpacks and 10,000 school kits tentatively within 30 calendar days after the award of the contract or on a date chosen by the INL not to be before 01 August 2016, but no later than 01 September 2016. 3.
