Ginnie Mae is providing a new Ginnie Mae Issuer Disclosure File, “issrinfo_YYYYMM.txt”, with basic address and program information on active and inactive Ginnie Mae Issuers. This file will be published monthly and will contain data for Issuers in Ginnie Mae’s Mortgaged Back Securities (MBS) Single Family, MBS Multifamily, Manufactured Housing, HECM MBS (HMBS) programs. The layout for the Ginnie Mae Issuer Disclosure File is attached.
This new file, while similar to the “Active Ginnie Mae Issuer” file that Ginnie Mae currently provides on the Disclosure Data Download page, named “issuers_YYYYMM.txt”, eliminates unnecessary fields and includes the Issuer’s Ginnie Mae program as well as the Issuer’s active/inactive status. At this time, Ginnie Mae will continue to publish the legacy “issuers_YYYYMM.txt” file (no change to this file).
Test File: On February 26th, 2018, a test file, named “test-issrinfo-YYYYMM.txt”, will be available on the New Release Test File Download page. This file should be used for testing purposes.
Production Implementation: Ginnie Mae is planning to implement the “issrinfo_YYYYMM.txt” file on the Disclosure Data Download page in May 2018, replacing the “issuers_YYYYMM.txt” file. Under this schedule, the final “issuers_YYYYMM.txt” file will be published in April 2018.
