January 9th, 2017

PIC Headlines – January 2017 The scheduled update for December PIC Scores and FYE SEMAP Indicators did not run or update over the weekend. Although the dates on the reports changed to December, none of the data updated. We assume this is because HUD ran a REAC update over the weekend. As soon as a notice is posted as to when the December scores will update we will pass that on to you. The notice of the REAC update is below.

Michele Mykytuk’s 20th Anniversary at Tenmast We celebrated Michele Mykytuk’s 20th Work Anniversary yesterday! What a milestone. We are so happy she has chosen to be part of our team for 20 years now! Michele has been an integral part of the Client Services Department for two decades and knows the Tenmast system, specifically check runs, inside and out. She jokes that she remembers when the team was made up of only 13 employees and how nervous she was when our CEO and owner, James Mauch bought the company 18 years ago! She has always risen to the occasion, no matter what role was thrown her way. Michele, you are a star! Here’s to 20 more years!

Then we asked them to plan one of our weekly development “sprints.” The result was a clear list of items they want us to change or add to the 2+ programs.
