BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN FOR TREASURY – BEST IN CLASS
As we adjust to extended periods of remote working, clients are realizing how effort previously expended in creating a business continuity plan (BCP) is paying back in spades. Good for them. And it’s true having a plan in place to accommodate the loss of access to the main office is one of the critical considerations in formulating an effective BCP plan. A full BCP plan needs to cover much more than planning for remote working. Starting to build out a BCP can be daunting, so we present an approach to defining what a BCP plan should cover for a specific company and how to evaluate and prioritize mitigations and recovery from those events, should they occur.

COLLABORATION TOOLS TO AID IN REMOTE WORKING
Due to current circumstances, many organizations have found themselves venturing into the new space of remote working. While most companies have their existing suite of collaboration tools to enable flexibility on location, it might not be enough infrastructure to ease the growing pains of a full work-from-home transition. At Actualize, we were an early adopter of Cloud Technology to support our internal team that has worked remotely for over 15 years, so we were prepared and seasoned for this shift.

GINNIE MAE’S NEW POOL DELIVERY DATASET (PDD) IS OPEN
Are You Ready to Jump in?
Ginnie Mae will start accepting the new Pool Delivery Dataset (PDD) MISMO® v3.3 dataset in Q3 2020. The Ginnie Mae’s website defines PDD as the following:
Ginnie Mae has created the Pool Delivery Dataset (PDD) which leverages the MISMO® Residential Specifications Version 3.3 Reference Model. Ginnie Mae’s PDD is a subset of the MISMO® reference model data points and provides a comprehensive list of data points for single family at issuance pool delivery data. However, Ginnie Mae’s PDD is specific to Ginnie Mae’s business model and therefore contains some unique data points that may not be a part of other MISMO® compliant datasets within the mortgage industry. The new PDD is an XML based file and applies to single family forward loans only. The file does not apply to HMBS reverse mortgages.
