Modernization Initiatives

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 acknowled​ged 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 Annual Report, an article by Barbara Cooper-Jones, SVP of Enterprise Data and Technology in the Ginnie Mae Housing Analysis & Policy Spotlight (HAPS) blog.

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.

For an additional list of documents, publications, processes and further information regarding our modernization effort, please refer to technology and modernization articles published in the HAPS​ blog and in the tables below.​

 ‭(Hidden)‬ Single Family Pool Delivery Module (SFPDM) - MISMO

The S​ingle 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 supports 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 allows Issuers to manually enter pool and loan data if they do not intend to import data using PDD files.

On June 1, 2023, Ginnie Mae released APM 23-08 announcing the required PDD/SFPDM implementation date and the revised GinnieNET cutover. The latest SFPDM Adoption Timeline can be found here.

The three key components of this adoption effort are:

  • Pool Delivery Dataset (PDD) - MISMO v3.3-compliant XML-formatted data for Single Family pools and loan import to SFPDM

  • Validation and Testing Tool (VTT) - Testing application for validating PDD structural and data specifications, as well as Ginnie Mae Business Rules or Edits

  • Single Family Pool Delivery Module (SFPDM) - New production application for PDD submissions to replace GinnieNET

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, please email askGinnieMae​@hud.gov or call Ginnie Mae Customer Support at 1-833-466-2435.

 ‭(Hidden)‬ RSA SecurID Soft Tokens

​​RSA Soft Tokens

In 2022, Ginnie Mae migrated to the use of RSA SecurID Soft Tokens. This migration eased access to applications on MyGinnieMae and provided enhanced security features that hard tokens could not provide. RSA SecurID Tokens are software-based security tokens that generate a single-use login PIN. Soft tokens replicate the security advantages of multifactor authentication, while simplifying distribution and lowering costs.

Ginnie Mae will automate soft token provisioning effective December 9th, 2023. This allows existing token holders to obtain a new RSA SecurID soft token and change the device on which the token is installed via self-service functionality. Token holders and their Organization Administrators are encouraged to reference this page for the latest updates, as Ginnie Mae iteratively improves the process for requesting and maintaining soft tokens.

 ‭(Hidden)‬ Reporting Feedback System (RFS) Expanded Loan Level Data Collection

On May 26th, 2023, Ginnie Mae announced the Additional Reporting and Feedback System (RFS) Loan Level Data Elements via APM 23-05​. The RFS Expanded Data Collection Initiative aims to enhance existing Investor Reporting that will fill critical operational and disclosure data gaps needed to increase accuracy and efficiency of Ginnie Mae’s monthly investor reporting and align with industry standards. The enhancement will allow for expanded data collection of 11 additional and 1 updated existing Single Family (SF) and MultiFamily (MF) data elements as stated in the APM.

The additional loan level data elements will provide the following benefits:

  • Allow greater accuracy in RFS pool/loan accounting payment calculation for operations
  • Provide essential metrics for disclosure to the capital markets
  • Enable greater ability to monitor MBS collateral
  • Assist in the path towards loan level details

This implementation effort is not solely focused on Ginnie Mae Issuers, but also their servicing platform providers, subservicers, as well as in-house software platforms reporting to RFS. The term Testing Organization will be used to describe all participants in the testing and implementation phases.

Testing Organizations are expected to use the information and tools provided on this page to prepare for the new data collection. For additional information and questions, please email askGinnieMae@hud.gov​ or call Ginnie Mae Customer Support at 1-833-466-2435.
