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.

Specifically, the Secretary has delegated: (1) All the Secretary's authority with respect to managing Ginnie 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).
