U.S. Department of Housing Credit Access Evaluation
Falcon Capital Advisors provides programmatic evaluations, assessments and recommendations on behalf of the Office of Housing Counseling and the Office of Single Family Housing to improve the client experience and outcomes of FHA borrowers. We have been tasked to provide HUD with information on the short-term and long-term impacts of housing counseling services on consumers and borrowers and the impacts of policy alternatives for FHA through analysis and assessment of housing market and economic data, survey of industry practices, and development of policy designs to maximize the utility of HUD programs.
Federal Housing Administration Operations Assessment Contract
Falcon Capital Advisors served as the most recent Oversight Advisor to HUD on the FHA’s $2.1 billion REO disposition program. The purpose of our work was to perform an operations assessment of the program to identify and mitigate potential operational, financial and counterparty risks to the FHA. The operations assessment involved establishing performance benchmarks and metrics, performing contract compliance and data systems reviews and conducting on-site audit and counterparty risk management evaluations. We provided FHA management with robust asset disposition and risk mitigation strategies to ensure best execution policies and procedures and effectively monitor program performance.
U.S. Department of Agriculture Credit & Operations Risk Management
Falcon Capital Advisors provided risk management advisory services to the USDA’s Single Family Housing Guarantee Loan Program. We conducted an in-depth review of the program’s workflow, processes and procedures and developed best practices solutions to ensure compliance with government standards, including OMB circular A-129. In doing so, we developed program requirements, including capital and financial requirements for lender and servicer participation and developed performance measures and risk thresholds (loan loss tolerances) at both the portfolio and loan level for the program.
FHLB Performance & Best Practices
The Board of Directors of the Office of Finance of the Federal Home Loan Bank System engaged Falcon Capital Advisors to review and assess the Office Finance’s performance relative to industry best practices in its financial reporting, disclosure, and governance practices and methodologies. In conducting an independent best practices review and performance assessment of the Office’s implementation strategies, Falcon reviewed corporate documents and processes, and interviewed personnel to evaluate the Office's Combined Financial Reports disclosures, operations, and corrective action plans. Falcon worked with the Office of Finance’s management to correct identified deficiencies, and presented to the Board of Directors a fully documented report that provided assurances that best practices recommendations were fully implemented.
