Bethsesda, Maryland-based IT and logistical support provider Information Systems & Network (ISN) Corporation has been awarded the contract to serve as Mortgagee Compliance Manager (MCM) for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The MCM contract was awarded to ISN for the amount of $42,048,600. Neither HUD nor ISN could immediately be reached for comment on the awarding of the MCM contract.
According to HUD, the MCM position was established in 2010 as a way to centralize the Department's compliance functions into a single point of contact, and was installed as the "first phase implemented under the new M&M (Management & Marketing) III property disposition procedures."
The MCM for HUD is responsible for ensuring that lenders and loan servicers approved by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) convey foreclosed properties to FHA in acceptable condition, according to HUD. The M&M III procedures were put in place to simplify and centralize the process of conveying foreclosed properties to FHA for FHA lenders and servicers. The M&M III procedures were also implemented to "improve communication and the dissemination of program guidance and requirements, according to HUD.
In 2010, when the position was established, the MCM contract was awarded to real estate solutions provider Michaelson, Connor & Boul, based in California and Oklahoma, which held the contract for five years.
