Managing Originators' DO Sponsorships

Your sponsored originators can register for Desktop Originator® (DO®) by using the online registration tool, and you can use this tool to approve the originators’ request for relationships.

You must first select a point of contact in your organization to serve as the administrator of online registration. The administrator will be able to log in to the registration application and approve the originator’s request for sponsorship. Contact your Fannie Mae technology team to obtain a user ID for the administrator.

When an originator requests a relationship with your organization, you receive an e-mail with a link to the online registration page. You access the online registration page using your DU user ID and can review and approve new originator requests.
