 FHA Conection Business-To-Government Direct Interface Updates

On June 23, 2015, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) posted updates to its FHA Connection Business-to-Government (FHAC B2G) Interface.  The changes to the interface support the implementation of the Single Family Housing Policy Handbook (SF Handbook; HUD Handbook 4000.1) Origination through Post-Closing/Endorsement for Title II Forward Mortgages (Origination through Post-Closing/Endorsement) section that becomes effective for case numbers assigned on or after September 14, 2015.  The FHAC B2G Interface provides mortgagees with an automated electronic method to send loan origination system (LOS) data directly to the FHAC system. 

The FHAC B2G Interface changes are detailed in the online Welcome Package, which can be accessed from the FHAC Business to Government Interface web page by clicking on the “FHAC B2G Welcome Package” link.  Mortgagees using the FHAC B2G Interface should review the details in their entirety, as they contain information on changes that mortgagees will need to make to their systems and processes by the Origination through Post-Closing/Endorsement section’s September 14, 2015 effective date.  Mortgagees should particularly note the following changes to:

  • Appraisal Logging;
  • Case Number Assignment;
  • Escrow Closeout;
  • Insurance Application; and
  • Case Query.
