Ensuring Business Continuity

We have business continuity plans in place to ensure we are fulfilling our mission while protecting our staff and the broader community.

Our Crisis Management Team and senior leaders are meeting regularly, closely monitoring the situation and making decisions based on guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization. These decisions have included:

  • Greatly expanding remote work and setting limits on those who can access our campus
  • Prohibiting visitors to Freddie Mac facilities
  • Suspending nonessential business travel for staff
  • Requiring staff to follow CDC recommendations

In addition, we are engaging with the Federal Housing Finance Agency and other third parties to ensure continuity of critical business activities.
