         •       SYSTEM CONFIGURATION:
                 The system can use a touch-tone, loop-start central office telephone line
                 to provide modem communication between the 1838 controller and the
                 user supplied personal computer, otherwise programming is via RS 232
                 communication or directly from the controller keypad.

                 A complete system shall consist of the 1838 controller and one or more
                 pieces of the following equipment (see optional equipment); access
                 control devices (readers, keypads, RF receivers) as required;
                 Tracker(tm) expansion boards as required; Elevator control boards as
                 required; door or gate locking devices (magnetic locks, electric door
                 strikes, etc.) as required; and connecting cables, wiring, mounting boxes
                 and power supplies required for a complete installation.

                 The systems programmable features and user data shall be retained in
                 EEPROM memory, which guarantees that programmed data is not lost
                 during power outages or chip removal.

                 1838 controller shall be surface mounted and located in the onsite
                 property management office. Controller will be directly connected to the
                 management computers.

         •       STANDARD SYSTEM FEATURES
                 The system set up commands, card codes, RF transmitter codes, digital
                 codes, and user data are programmed on the PC using the DoorKing
                 Remote Account Manager software or equivalent, and then sent to the
                 1838 controller via modem or RS232. Selected programming functions
                 are also available through the controller keypad.

                 The 1838 stores all user data and makes the decision to grant or deny
                 access when a card, RF transmitter, or entry code is received at the unit.

                 Each event, including access denials and postal entry is recorded in the
                 system’s history buffer.

                 This buffer can be down loaded to the PC for analysis.

                 The history buffer will maintain the date, time, access device used, name
                 associated with the device, the device code, whether access was
                 granted or denied, and at what entry point the event took place.

                 The system shall include an internal dial-up modem and terminals for
                 RS-232 communications.

                 The system is powered by two plug-in 16.5 VAC, 20 VA power
                 transformers that are supplied with the unit.

                 specific times and days as programmed in the software.

                 The system shall be capable of providing “Live Transaction Reporting”
                 via the user supplied PC connected to the system by RS-232 interface.

                 32 Holiday Schedules shall be user programmable.

                 The system shall be capable of providing “True” anti-pass back in 3
                 different modes of operation.

                 Passive mode shall report anti-pass back violations but will allow entry or
                 exit.

                 Active mode shall report anti-pass back violations and will not allow entry
                 or exit.

                 Trap mode shall report anti-pass back violations and will allow entry but
                 not exit.

                 The system shall have an “Import / Export” feature to allow database
                 transfer between to or from common spreadsheet programs.
                 Eight (8) hold open time zones shall allow designated access points to
                 be 'un-locked' at times and days as required.
                 The system shall be capable of elevator control to restrict user and guest
                 access to floors as programmed in the software. Elevator control
                 requires the use of the DoorKing 2348-010 Elevator Control Board or
                 equivalent, and shall be capable of controlling up to eight (8) elevators,
                 with each elevator serving up to 64 floors.

                 Additional 1838 access controllers can share the same user database to
                 control additional access points.

                 A provision for postal lock input shall allow and record entries by post
                 office personnel.

                 Access Control (standard 26-bit wiegand communication):

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is authorized to collect this information by law (42 U.S.C. 3535(d) and 24 C.F.R. 200.217) and by regulation at 24 CFR 200.210. This information
is needed so that principals applying to participate in multifamily programs can become HUD-approved participants. The information you provide will enable HUD to evaluate your record with respect
to established standards of performance, responsibility and eligibility. Without prior approval, a principal may not participate in a proposed or existing multifamily project. HUD uses this information to
evaluate whether or not principals pose an unsatisfactory underwriting risk. The information is used to evaluate the potential principals and approve only individuals and organizations who will honor
their legal, financial and contractual obligations.
Privacy Act Statement: The Housing and Community Development Act of 1987, 42 U.S.C. 3543 requires persons applying for a Federally-insured or guaranteed loan to furnish his/her Social Security Number
(SSN). HUD must have your SSN for identification of your records. HUD may use your SSN for automated processing of your records and to make requests for information about you and your previous records
with other public agencies and private sector sources. HUD may disclose certain information to Federal, State and local agencies when relevant to civil, criminal, or regulatory investigations and prosecutions.
It will not be otherwise disclosed or released outside of HUD, except as required and permitted by law. You must provide all of the information requested in this application, including your SSN.
Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 1 hour per response, including the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering and
maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. This agency may not collect this information, and you are not required to complete this form, unless it
displays a currently valid OMB control number.
A response is mandatory. Failure to provide any of the information will result in your disapproval for participation in this HUD program.

       WAGE DETERMINATION APPEALS PROCESS

1.) Has there been an initial decision in the matter? This can
be:

* an existing published wage determination
* a survey underlying a wage determination
* a Wage and Hour Division letter setting forth a position on
  a wage determination matter
* a conformance (additional classification and rate) ruling

On survey related matters, initial contact, including requests for summaries of surveys,
should be with the Wage and Hour Regional Office for the area in which the survey was
conducted because those Regional Offices have responsibility for the Davis-Bacon
survey program. If the response from this initial contact is not satisfactory, then the
process described in 2.) and 3.) should be followed.

With regard to any other matter not yet ripe for the formal process described here, initial
contact should be with the Branch of Construction Wage Determinations. Write to:

         Branch of Construction Wage Determinations
         Wage and Hour Division
         U.S. Department of Labor
         200 Constitution Avenue, N.W.
         Washington, DC 20210

2.) If the answer to the question in 1.) is yes, then an interested party (those affected by
the action) can request review and reconsideration from the Wage and Hour
Administrator (See 29 CFR Part 1.8 and 29 CFR Part 7). Write to:

         Wage and Hour Administrator
         U.S. Department of Labor
         200 Constitution Avenue, N.W.
         Washington, DC 20210

The request should be accompanied by a full statement of the interested party's position
and by any information (wage payment data, project description, area practice material,
etc.) that the requestor considers relevant to the issue.
3.) If the decision of the Administrator is not favorable, an interested party may appeal
directly to the Administrative Review Board (formerly the Wage Appeals Board). Write
to:

         Administrative Review Board
         U.S. Department of Labor
         200 Constitution Avenue, N.W.
         Washington, DC 20210

4.) All decisions by the Administrative Review Board are final.
