The information contained in the Ginnie Mae Mortgage-Backed Securities Investor Reporting Manuals (“Reporting Manuals”) is based on Ginnie Mae Mortgage-Backed Securities (“MBS”) program requirements as of September 2011, and conforms with guidelines in effect at that time as outlined in the Ginnie Mae Mortgage-Backed Securities Guide, Ginnie Mae 5500.3 (the “Guide”). The Guide is the primary source of information concerning both Ginnie Mae I and Ginnie Mae II pool administration. Ginnie Mae notiﬁes Issuers of periodic changes in guidelines and requirements through All Participants Memoranda and changes to the Guide. We urge Issuers to consult these documents for deﬁnitive answers to questions about current program requirements. Both the Guide and All Participants Memoranda (“APM”) are available on Ginnie Mae’s Web site at http://www.ginniemae.gov.
Those accessing this site can download entire copies or individual sections of the Guide.
An Issuer may also contact its assigned Account Executive in Ginnie Mae’s Ofﬁce of Mortgage-Backed Securities, Single Family Division or Multifamily Division (as appropriate), or the Mortgage-Backed Securities Administration Agent (“MBSAA”) contractor for assistance.
