Conservatorship Scorecard

In May of 2014 FHFA published a 2014 Strategic Plan for Enterprise Conservatorships and a 2014 Scorecard for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac (the Enterprises) and Common Securitization Solutions.


Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Goals:


MAINTAIN - in a safe and sound manner, foreclosure prevention activities and credit availability for new and refinanced mortgages to foster liquid, efficient, competitive and resilient national housing finance markets.

REDUCE - taxpayer risk through increasing the role of private capital in the mortgage market.

BUILD - a new single-family securitization infrastructure for use by the Enterprises and adaptable for use by other participants in the secondary market in the future.


For detailed scorecard goals go to 2014 Scorecard.


For all Scorecard items, Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac (the Enterprises) will be assessed based on the following criteria:

  • The extent to which the initiatives are undertaken in a safe and sound manner;
  • The quality, thoroughness, creativity, effectiveness, and timeliness of their work products;
  • Cooperation and collaboration with FHFA, Common Securitization Solutions (CSS), each other, and the industry;
  • The extent to which the outcomes of their activities support a competitive and resilient secondary mortgage market to support homeowners and renters;
  • The quality of the input provided to FHFA for periodic progress reports to the public.


2014 Goals for the Common Securitization Solutions, LLC (CSS):


  •  Continue to build and test the Common Securitization Platform (CSP)
    • CSS should focus its work with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on the functions necessary for current Enterprise securitization activities.
    • This work should include the operational and system capabilities needed to issue a single (common) security for the Enterprises.
    • In addition, this work should allow for the option and the integration of additional market participants in a future system.
  • Complete and submit an updated plan for integrating with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
  • Develop the CSS multi-year business and operational plan, including a budget.
  • Work with the Enterprises to obtain and utilize industry input.
  • Provide input to FHFA for periodic progress reports to the public.
