Companies, firms, and individuals are encouraged to review the information provided in this website before registering to be considered for these contracting opportunities.

In 2008, Congress passed the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA). In part, HERA is aimed at ensuring, to the maximum extent possible in balance with financially safe and sound business practices, the inclusion and utilization of minorities, women, and individuals with disabilities as suppliers to entities like Fannie Mae. HERA has allowed Fannie Mae to expand our diversity outreach efforts to minority individuals, women, and individuals with disabilities, as well as to a broader group of minority-, women- and disabled-owned businesses.
In reviewing and evaluating supplier responses to Requests for Proposals, Fannie Mae will seek the most qualified bidders considering, among other things, the diversity of the bidders as a component in the process.
Fannie Mae continues to maintain our commitment to small business; 8(a) businesses; veteran- or disabled-owned businesses; Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) businesses; as well as HUBZone businesses and Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions.
Fannie Mae is a member of several business councils that address diverse supplier business concerns, and we participate in and sponsor numerous business opportunity fairs and conferences across the country.
