2. Uses of GAFR Data
  • Receive and make payments to guarantors;
  • Monitor guarantor’s financial activities;
  • Collection recovery rate;
  • Federal receivable balance;
  • ED’s financial statements;
  • Reasonability to NSLDS data;

2. Uses of GAFR Data (Con’t.)

Minimum Reserve Ratio*

If a guarantor drops below the minimum reserve ratio of .25% for two consecutive years, they are required to submit and implement a Management Plan acceptable to the Department.

* Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA, as amended), Section 428(c)(9)(C)

2 uses of gafr data con t6
2. Uses of GAFR Data (Con’t.)

Minimum Reserve Ratio Calculation

  • Historical* method of calculating the minimum reserve ratio is:

Federal Fund Balance (AR-26) divided by Original Principal Outstanding (OPO)

* The historical calculation is used for evaluating a guaranty agency’s financial condition.

2 uses of gafr data con t7
2. Uses of GAFR Data (Con’t.)
  • Currently, the ratio published on the FP Portal is:

Federal Fund Balance (AR-26) + Loan Loss Liability (AR- 56) + FY06 and FY07 Reserve Recalls Not Returned divided by Original Principal Outstanding (OPO)

2 uses of gafr data con t8
2. Uses of GAFR Data (Con’t.)
  • Original Principal Outstanding (OPO) =

AR-1 (-) AR-2 (+) AR-3 (-) AR-4 (-) AR-5 (+) AR-6 (-) AR-7 (-) AR-8 (-) AR-9 (-) AR-10 (-) AR-11 (-) AR-12

2. Uses of GAFR Data (Con’t.)
    • Trigger Rate
  • If the guarantor’s reinsurance claims paid by the Department reaches 5% or 9% (trigger rate) of the loans in repayment at the end of the preceding year, then the reimbursement rate on claims are reduced.
  • The method for calculating the Trigger Rate is:
  • Trigger Basis Amount divided by Loans In Repayment
slide10
2. Uses of GAFR Data (Con’t.)
  • Trigger Basis Amount =
  • Dollars Paid CFY (-) Rehab Loan Refunds (-) Refunds
  • Loans in Repayment @ 9/30 of the prior year =
  • AR-1 (-) AR-2 (+) AR-3 (-) AR-4 (-) AR-5 (+)
  • AR-6 (-) AR-7 (-) AR-8 (-) AR-9 (-) AR-10 (-)
  • AR-11 (-) AR-12 (-) AR-13 (-) AR-14

Category Calculations

Loans in Repayment (see calculation above)

5% Trigger (In Repayment) 5% of Calculated Value Above

9% Trigger (In Repayment) 9% of Calculated Value Above

Amount Requested Fiscal Year to Date FYTD Total MR-1 “Other Amount”

Dollars Paid Fiscal Year to Date FYTD Total MR-1 “Principal Amount”

Rehabilitated Loans Applied If a GA has an Rehabilitation Agreement – Cumulative total of MR-10 Rehabilitated Loan Principal Amount. If a GA has no Rehabilitation Agreement this Field would be zero.

Refunds Applied All GA’s receive credit for Partial Refunds (MR-7-A). GA’s with Repurchase Agreement – Receive credit for Repurchases – CFY,

MR-5-A, Defaults. W/agreement total for MR-5-A plus MR-7-A. W/out agreement total for MR-7-A only.

Trigger Basis Amount Represents the fiscal year to date amount of Dollars Paid FY to Date reduced by the amounts calculated for Rehabilitated Loans Applied and

Refunds Applied.

Percent of Request Paid Dollars Paid FY to Date divided by Amount Requested FY to Date.

Trigger Rate Trigger Basis Amount divided by Loans in Repayment.
