Placeholder As an expert in mortgage technology, Scott is called upon by members of Congress to articulate technology issues facing the mortgage industry. The specific inquiries are related to how the GSE technology initiatives impact the health of the mortgage industry. Listed below are two white papers submitted to members of Congress and a few articles that Scott has authored that discuss GSE technology issues. Note however, changes at Freddie Mac in 2004-2006 have mostly mitigated the issues found in these papers. See the article in the August 2006 issue of Mortgage Banking for more detail.
