|GNMA Financial Crisis Readiness||01/2022||Providing a Stable Housing Finance Platform||Ginnie Mae||District of Columbia|
HUD OIG is reviewing GNMA’s financial crisis readiness program. To ensure its mission, GNMA must be prepared for a broad range of crises, including financial crises, that could impact itself or its issuers. Our objective is to determine whether GNMA implemented a financial crisis readiness program that met industry best practices. According to GAO, best management practices refer to the processes, practices, and systems identified in public and private organizations that performed exceptionally well and are widely recognized as improving an organization’s performance and efficiency in specific areas. Successfully identifying and applying best practices can reduce business expenses and improve organizational efficiency.
