Ginnie Mae continues to modernize its Securitization Platform technology, processes, and related policies in response to the growing need for improved service delivery to its Issuers and investors, creating a fairer, more affordable and equitable housing finance system. Toward this goal, Ginnie Mae is transforming its platform operations to deliver greater business value.
Our migration to a public cloud is the foundation for our modernization and transformation initiatives. Ginnie Mae's efforts were recently acknowledged by peers in the technology industry when the agency was named a 2022 CIO 100 award recipient, recognition assigned to organizations that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology. This transition to a mature public cloud enhances Ginnie Mae's ability to respond to market changes and develop new products that help America's homeowners and renters.
Ginnie Mae has continued to invest in technology modernization and optimization efforts designed to simplify doing business with us. We expanded the functionality and value proposition of MyGinnieMae, our business processing hub, by launching important pooling tools for single- and multi-family as well as Platinum securities, helping to streamline those products. Additionally, we incorporated a state-of-the-art centralized helpdesk into the portal that significantly enhances the customer experience.
The broad details of these efforts were outlined in the 2022

Technology modernization powers Ginnie Mae's enhanced securities disclosure. Enhanced disclosure of the mortgages underlying Ginnie Mae MBS give a clearer picture of Ginnie Mae's market-leading support for affordable housing and first-time homeownership, key visibility tools for investors interested in making Social investments as part of their broader Environmental, Social and Governance portfolio targets.
In addition to increasingly deeper data into the Social aspect of Ginnie Mae's MBS, technology driven data tools help Ginnie Mae report out the way its securities further Environmental investment goals portfolio managers may have. Overall, Ginnie Mae's ESG disclosure are aligned with the Biden-Harris Administration's commitments to affordable housing and environmental sustainability.

The Single Family Pool Delivery Module (SFPDM) is Ginnie Mae’s modernized application for the delivery of Single Family and Manufactured Housing issuance data. This application offers several new capabilities, including greater transparency into the progress of submitted pools through an intuitive and user-friendly interface.
The modernized application will support the submission of Ginnie Mae’s new Pool Delivery Dataset (PDD), which leverages the mortgage data standards and XML specifications created by the Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO). Ginnie Mae’s PDD is specific to Ginnie Mae’s business model and therefore contains some unique data points that may not be a part of other MISMO compliant datasets within the mortgage industry. Additionally, SFPDM will allow Issuers to manually enter pool and loan data if they do not intend to import data using PDD files.
Ginnie Mae released
APM 22-02 on January 31, 2022 announcing the start of the transition from GinnieNET to SFPDM. Currently, Issuers participating in the Single Family and Manufactured Housing Programs are preparing to adopt SFPDM in advance of the GinnieNET cutover of pooling functions. At the end of the Adoption Window, SFPDM will be the singular application for Single Family and Manufactured Housing Program pooling. This transition does not impact HMBS reverse mortgages or Document Custodians. The latest SFPDM Adoption Timeline can be found here.
Issuers are expected to use the information and tools provided on this page to prepare for the transition to SFPDM. For additional information and questions regarding the PDD and VTT, please email

As a part of Ginnie Mae's efforts to modernize its Securitization Platform, the organization is migrating to the use of RSA SecurID Tokens to replace the existing SecurID Hard Tokens. This replacement initiative will only impact users who currently rely on SecurID token to access applications on MyGinnieMae. This migration will ease access to applications on MyGinnieMae and provide enhanced security features that existing SecurID tokens cannot provide.
Note, this migration will not impact any User's access to MyGinnieMae applications.
RSA SecurID Tokens are software-based security tokens that generates a single-use login PIN. Soft tokens replicate the security advantages of multifactor authentication, while simplifying distribution and lowering costs. A soft token app performs the same task as hardware-based security token.
Existing MyGinnieMae users who rely on a SecurID Hard Token to access applications on MyGinnieMae will be provided with a new soft token to maintain their current access.
The RSA SecurID Soft Token migration will mimic the MyGinnieMae AWS migration. Token users will need to validate their soft tokens prior to migration to maintain access to MyGinnieMae. Refer to the timeline below for an overview of the token migration process.
Ginnie Mae remains dedicated to making technological improvements that deliver a better and safer experience for its business partners. Accordingly, Ginnie Mae is rolling out major upgrades to the Securitization Platform in
October 2022 to consolidate data centers and migrate to the cloud. These upgrades will generate an improved user experience, more efficient processing, and allow for the deployment of desirable business tools like RSA SecurID Soft Tokens.
The information in this section will provide details on the impact to Ginnie Mae business processes and systems dur to the Securitization Platform Upgrades and guidance on how customers will navigate those impacts. For additional information and question about Platform Upgrades, please email
