Consolidated Technology Guide

The Consolidated Technology Guide (“Guide”) is the single point of reference for Fannie Mae’s technology licensing contract, the Software Subscription Agreement (SSA), which governs external party access and use of Fannie Mae’s applications and related application programming interfaces (APIs). The Guide consolidates the main components of the SSA – the General Terms and Conditions and all of its Schedules – into one document, making it easier to find and manage information in a format that is consistent with the Selling and Servicing Guides.  

New Licensees

Any entity that is not currently a Licensee and wishes to have access to one or more Fannie Mae applications will need to execute a Software Subscription License or electronically consent to its terms. By executing the License, or acknowledging it electronically, Licensee agrees to all of the SSA’s terms and provisions. However, a particular Schedule applies only if the Licensee has been granted access to the Licensed Application covered by the Schedule.


Guide Updates

Each version of the Guide that is issued is accompanied by a Technology Guide Bulletin. The Bulletin provides a high-level summary of all content changes included in the associated Guide update. Guide updates and corresponding Technology Guide Bulletins are issued on an ad hoc basis, as warranted, rather than a predetermined publication schedule.
