OMWI Supplier Diversity
Welcome to the OMWI supplier diversity page. Thank you for your interest in doing business with the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA).
FHFA obligates approximately $55 million per year in contract actions. OMWI works directly with FHFA’s Contracting Operations within the Office of Budget and Financial Management (OBFM) to help increase the Agency’s diversity supplier engagement through initiatives aimed at connecting minority- and women-owned businesses with the appropriate business units.
FHFA Contracting Operations
FHFA is a non-appropriated Agency, which means that the budget resources are not provided by Congress. Instead, the funding comes from the entities that FHFA regulates. While FHFA is not subject to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (known as FAR), FHFA is subject to many of the same procurement laws as other appropriated agencies, so FHFA uses many FAR clauses in its contracts. FHFA works under separate and unique laws and has established its own contracting policies and procedures for procuring its goods and services.
Many of FHFA’s contracting needs are routine types of goods and services provided by the General Services Administration (GSA), so when practical, FHFA competes its requirements under GSA schedule or other available Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWAC).
