In Ginnie Mae's bylaws, the Secretary has delegated all the powers and duties of Ginnie Mae that were vested in the Secretary to Ginnie Mae. In previous Federal Register notices, the Secretary has delegated authority over Ginnie Mae to the Ginnie Mae President. Specifically, the Secretary has delegated: (1) All the Secretary's authority with respect to managing Start Printed Page 2661Ginnie Mae and Ginnie Mae's programs pursuant to title III of the National Housing Act (12 U.S.C. 1723 and 68 FR 41840); (2) authority to waive regulations issued by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (73 FR 76674); (3) authority to impose suspensions and debarments, with the concurrence of the General Counsel or his or her designee (54 FR 4913 and 63 FR 57133); and (4) the power to affix HUD's seal and authenticate documents (68 FR 41840).
