Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA)

After the housing crisis and the depression that followed, it became critical that the public regain confidence in Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and the dozen Federal Home Loan Banks scattered across the country. To supervise and regulate these entities, Congress created the FHFA, which in 2008 formally put Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac under its conservatorship. Born of crisis and the inheritor of the duties of two earlier organizations, FHFA's inspector general's office (IG) had to quickly establish its operational independence and maintain its absolute integrity. That meant that information on all of its ongoing investigations had to be kept separate and apart from the information systems of its parent organization.

Edge Digital Group isolated over 30 gigabytes of the IG's information on a new, secure, cloud-based SharePoint system, administered by and housed at NTIS. In addition, Edge wrote sophisticated filtering and reporting programs, integrated with TeamMate audit management software, to examine audit reports and create executive overviews that identified and prioritized potential problems.
