On June 8, 2020 Ginnie Mae is updating the structure and content of the Disclosure Data Download page. Ginnie Mae is providing a two-week period for comments on the updated layout; all comments must be received by May 1, 2020.
This bulletin includes the planned updates to the page. Many of these changes are required to accommodate implementation of the new MBS Enhanced Single Family disclosures file (see Bulletin 2020-003) which includes updated file layouts and file names.
1. UPDATED ‘FILE TYPE’ COLUMN LABELS
While Ginnie Mae is standardizing “File Type” labels that appear in the Disclosure Data Download table, the corresponding “Data File” names will not be changing. To see a complete mapping of new and old file labels, please see the attached File Type Mapping.
2. REORGANIZATION OF DOWNLOAD FILES
The reorganized Disclosure Data Download page will be arranged by product type as opposed to the existing screen which is structured by attributes like New Issuance and Pool Level.
A visual preview of the new page layout is attached for convenience: Data Download Reorganization Preview.
3. RETIREMENT OF LEGACY DISCLOSURE FILES
The following files will be removed from the page:
- Prospective MIP, D Format
- Legacy MBS Pool Disclosure files
- Legacy Consolidate Disclosure (Bulletin 2020-003)
o Consolidated Pool Disclosure Data by record type for monthly MBS portfolio data will no longer be produced (Bulletin 2020-004)
4. EASIER ACCESS TO FILE LAYOUTS AND SAMPLE FILES
For each section, a link to the relevant layout and sample files will now be included in the header banner. Previously, this information was accessible from the bottom of the page.
5. CLARIFICATION OF LAST UPDATED DATE/TIME
To improve clarity, the column header ‘Last Updated’ will be changed to ‘Last Posted’ to describe when each file was published to the website.
6. UPDATED LABELS FOR HMBS FILES
In Bulletin 2020-002 Ginnie Mae published updates to the HMBS file type label and file names. To preserve consistency with the rest of the site, these file names will be updated as follows:
||HMBS Enhanced Pool Daily
||HMBS Daily New Issues-Pool Level|
||HMBS Enhanced Pool Monthly
||HMBS Portfolio Pool Level|
