HUD Procurement Handbook 7460.8 REV 2
This handbook is originally from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)



                                                 Handbook No. 7460.8 REV 2

            APPENDIX 11. SAMPLE LEGAL SERVICES ENGAGEMENT LETTER
            
The United States Department of HUD urges inclusion of the following provisions into all legal 
services contracts executed and/or administered by PHAs, unless no federally provided funds 
will be used to administer the contract.

ADDENDUM TO ENGAGEMENT AGREEMENT

1.  The [name of PHA] and [name of legal service individual or firm] Legal Service Personnel 
    (LSP) engaged to provide professional legal services to the PHA in connection with [briefly 
    and precisely describe the nature, scope and limits of the legal services to be provided by the 
    LSP] agree that the provisions of this Addendum to the Engagement Agreement are hereby 
    incorporated into PHA and LSPís engagement agreement as if they had been set forth at 
    length therein.

2.  During the pendency of the legal services engagement, LSP shall not, without HUD approval, 
    represent any officer or employee of PHA, in her/his individual capacity, in connection with 
    potential civil liability or criminal conduct issues related to PHA operations.

3.  LSP has an obligation not to, and shall not, interfere with, disrupt, or inappropriately delay or 
    hinder any authorized monitoring, review, audit, or investigative activity of HUD (including 
    the Office of Inspector General), the General Accounting Office (GAO), or the officers and 
    employees of HUD and GAO. Any and all representation by LSP cannot be inconsistent with 
    the foregoing obligation. Specifically, LSP shall not deny access to HUD, GAO, or the 
    officers and employees of HUD and GAO, to PHA records in response to document demands 
    by HUD, GAO, or the officers and employees of HUD and GAO, notwithstanding possible 
    discovery privileges that would otherwise be available to PHA. HUD requires PHAs to 
    provide HUD, GAO, or the officers and agents of HUD and GAO, with "full and free" access 
    to all their books, documents, papers and records. See 24 CFR 85.42(e)(1).

4.  PHA and LSP shall make available for inspection and copying, by HUD (including the Office 
    of Inspector General), GAO, and the officers and employees of HUD and GAO, all invoices, 
    detailed billing statements, and evidence of payment thereof relating to LSPís engagement. 
    Such records constitute "PHA records" and are subject to section 3, above.

5.  If HUD or PHA determines that LSP is violating any provision of this Addendum to the 
    Engagement Agreement, it shall timely notify LSP of such violation. LSP will have 48 hours 
    following its receipt of the notice of violation to cease and desist from further violation of the 
    addendum. If LSP fails to adequately cure the noticed violation within 48 hours: (A) HUD, in 
    its discretion, may demand that PHA terminate the professional legal services engagement for 
    breach, or, henceforth, satisfy all costs associated with the engagement with non-Federal 
    funds; and/or (B) PHA, in its discretion, may terminate the professional legal services 
    engagement for breach. Additionally, HUD may sanction LSP pursuant to 24 CFR Part 24.

6.  Should any part, term, or provision of this Addendum to the Engagement Agreement be 
    declared or determined by any court of competent jurisdiction to be illegal or invalid, the 
    validity of the remaining parts, terms, and provisions shall not be affected.
