Ginnie Mae continues to modernize its Securitization Platform technology, processes, and related policies to provide increased transparency and improved service delivery to its Issuers. To support this goal, in January 2020, Ginnie Mae launched the MyGinnieMae (MGM) portal, a comprehensive platform that integrates functional and technological capabilities into a common infrastructure.
The MGM portal provides enhanced security and a single entry point to all approved applications for individual users, as well as a seamless user registration and access request process, for both the user and the approving authority. With the adoption of MGM, one account and one single username and password will provide users access to all systems, applications and Organization IDs/Issuer IDs. MGM houses existing Ginnie Mae legacy systems (i.e. GMEP 1.0, GinnieNET), modernized portal applications (i.e. MFPDM, AMC), and resources that boost efficiency for our business partners.
Requisite MGM Roles and Responsibilities
Organization Administrators (formerly known as Security Officers and Enrollment Administrators). Organization Administrators (OAs) have the system authority to invite end users to register for an MGM account, approve user registration, initiate access request via functional role assignment to user, and approve the access request within their organizations. To register for access to the Ginnie Mae Systems, including the MGM and systems and applications contained therein, multiple OAs will be required to complete the registration and access workflows for onboarding users into MGM. Each OA for any Ginnie Mae Issuer must be listed as an authorized signatory in the organization’s form HUD-11702. OAs for Document Custodians are not subject to the HUD-11702 requirement. However, please note that Document Custodians should only assign individuals who are officers or have managerial and oversight responsibility for custodial operations as OAs. For details regarding the new OA adding process, please see revised Appendix III-29 that is attached to this APM.
Please note that separation of duties guidelines within the registration and access request workflows prohibit the same OAs from initiating a registration and approving that same registration and from initiating request access via functional role assignment and approving such requests. For each Issuer, Ginnie Mae requires a minimum of three OAs, but we strongly encourage you to have more than the minimum as a safeguard against operational challenges.
End Users. End Users include Ginnie Mae employees, business partners, program participants and contractors who will require access to the business applications and information within the Portal, including various self-service functions. A full list of the functional roles available to external end users may be found here.
New Requirements for Users of Ginnie Mae Systems
Effective September 1, 2020, all Issuers must meet the following two requirements.
- Each organization must have a minimum of three OAs with active MGM credentials.
- Users of all Ginnie Mae Systems, including the Ginnie Mae Enterprise Portal and GinnieNET, are required to have active credentials to access MGM in order to be able to transact on Ginnie Mae Systems.
Effective December 1, 2020, MGM will become the sole avenue to access all Ginnie Mae systems. After December 1, 2020, Issuers will no longer be able to access GinnieNET or GMEP directly through their Uniform Resource Locator (URL) web address.
