WHEREAS, in support of its housing finance mission, the MPF Provider has developed the MPF Program, a financial services product whereby an FHLB funds or purchases residential mortgage loans (“Mortgage Loans,” and individually a “Mortgage Loan”) through or from members of the MPF Provider, pursuant to separate Participating Financial Institution Agreements (“PFI Agreements”) with each participating member;

 

WHEREAS, the Pittsburgh Bank wishes (i) to fund Mortgage Loans through its own members who pursuant to the MPF Program will be acting as agent for the Pittsburgh Bank in closing such Mortgage Loans, (ii) to purchase Mortgage Loans from its own members, and (iii) to have the MPF Provider operate and maintain the MPF Program for the benefit of the Pittsburgh Bank and any other FHLBs that are or may desire to participate in the MPF Program, including providing support services for the Pittsburgh Bank’s participation in the MPF Program; and

ARTICLE IV

OPERATIONAL SYSTEMS

 

4.1. Systems Support. The MPF Provider shall work with the Pittsburgh Bank to develop an appropriate interface or method for receiving reports from the MPF Provider. Data regarding the Pittsburgh Bank’s PFIs and the Mortgage Loans the Pittsburgh Bank has funded or purchased, and that are serviced by its PFIs will be processed on the same system the MPF Provider uses to process the MPF Provider’s MPF Program data. The MPF Provider intends to update this system as it deems necessary to keep the system operating in a commercially reasonable manner.

 

4.2. Deliverables. The MPF Provider shall provide the following reports, inquiry capabilities, and electronic data transmission to the Pittsburgh Bank or its PFIs, as applicable:

 

4.2.1. PFI Reports. Subject to the timely receipt of accurate data from the Pittsburgh Bank, the MPF Provider shall transmit the same reports to the Pittsburgh Bank’s PFIs as the MPF Provider supplies to the MPF Provider’s PFIs. These reports are generally described in the Guides. Any supplemental reports will be made available to the Pittsburgh Bank’s PFIs in the same way that they are made available to the MPF Provider’s PFIs.

 

4.2.2. Management Reports. The MPF Provider shall provide such reports to the Pittsburgh Bank as are described and with the frequency set forth in the FHLB Guide.

 

4.2.3. On-Line Inquiry. Access to certain information in the MPF System will be made available through on-line inquiry by the Pittsburgh Bank. The method for making inquiry and the nature of the available data is set forth in the FHLB Guide.

4.2.5. Implementation. The MPF Provider and the Pittsburgh Bank have prepared an implementation schedule to govern the initiation and testing of the various deliverables described in this Agreement. This schedule includes dates for training the Pittsburgh Bank’s personnel. Both the MPF Provider and the Pittsburgh Bank shall diligently work to implement the installation and training in the agreed upon time frame. The parties recognize that the implementation schedule represents a best estimate of the time and actions needed to be taken rather than a precise prediction, and therefore, that such implementation schedule is subject to modification as needed to deal with unforeseen circumstances.

 

-9-


4.2.6. Penalties For Delayed Implementation. The MPF Provider shall make all the capabilities described in Sections 4.1. and 4.2. available for testing by the Pittsburgh Bank not later than four months after the date this Agreement is executed. Should the MPF Provider fail to make these capabilities available within the six month period following execution of this Agreement, the Pittsburgh Bank’s Program Contribution shall be reduced by $100,000 for each ninety (90) day period or part-thereof in which such capabilities are not made available past the initial six month period.

 

4.3. Program Enhancements.

 

4.3.1. System Review. The MPF Provider shall hold periodic meetings, at least once a quarter during 1999, to discuss possible changes and enhancements to the MPF Program system and to prioritize the scheduling of any such enhancements. Such meetings will be open to all FHLBs participating in the MPF Program, who can attend in person or telephonically.

 

4.3.2. Customized Enhancements. For the first six (6) months after the Pittsburgh Bank’s first Mortgage Loan is funded or purchased through the MPF Program it may not request enhancements to the MPF Program system that would be solely for the benefit of the Pittsburgh Bank (“Customized Enhancements”). Thereafter, the Pittsburgh Bank may request Customized Enhancements to be made by the MPF Provider. The MPF Provider shall develop any Customized Enhancements requested by the Pittsburgh Bank provided that such Customized Enhancements do not negatively impact the performance or operation of the MPF Program system for other MPF Banks. The MPF Provider shall promptly advise the Pittsburgh Bank of its estimate of the cost and anticipated billing schedule, and the time period necessary to develop such Customized Enhancements. Commencement of work on any Customized Enhancements is subject to the Pittsburgh Bank’s acceptance of the estimates provided by the MPF Provider. The Pittsburgh Bank will reimburse the MPF Provider for the MPF Provider’s costs and expenses to develop any Customized Enhancements as provided for in the FHLB Guide, such payment to be made by the MPF Provider debiting the Pittsburgh Bank’s Clearing Account. The MPF Provider shall provide progress reports with its statement of development costs and expenses. The MPF Provider shall use its best efforts to develop Customized Enhancements for not more than the estimated cost and within the expected time frame. However, the MPF Provider does not guarantee that any Customized Enhancements can be developed or, if they can be developed, what the final cost will be or how long it may take to do so. The Pittsburgh Bank may request the MPF Provider to cease development of Customized Enhancements at any time but shall remain liable for all costs and expenses (including uncancellable contracts) incurred by the MPF Provider up to the date it receives such request to cease its development activities. Any Customized Enhancement with an estimated cost greater than $50,000 shall be developed pursuant to a separate development agreement between the MPF Provider and the Pittsburgh Bank.

 

-10-


4.3.3. Reimbursement by Other FHLBs. If, during any Term of this Agreement, other FHLBs adopt any Customized Enhancements paid for by the Pittsburgh Bank, the Pittsburgh Bank will be reimbursed for a portion of the development costs of such Customized Enhancements in accordance with the following formula:

 

RA = (CE x 1.15) / Participating FHLBs

 

In the above formula, “RA” means the reimbursement amount due from each FHLB that adopts the Customized Enhancements; “CE” means the cost of the Customized Enhancement; and “Participating FHLBs” means the number of FHLBs participating in the MPF Program at the time of the development request (including the Pittsburgh Bank and the MPF Provider). Customized Enhancements shall no longer be considered “Customized Enhancements” on the third anniversary of their acceptance by the MPF Bank that requested such enhancements.

(i) To hold the Mortgage Loan Documents and any other documents or papers relating to the Mortgage Loans which come into the Custodian’s possession (the “Custodial Files”) for the benefit of, and as an agent for and bailee of, the Pittsburgh Bank and to maintain continuous custody of all Custodial Files in accordance with customary standards for such custody;

-12-


Pittsburgh Bank, and shall dispose of the same only in accordance with instructions furnished by the MPF Provider on behalf of the Pittsburgh Bank. The Custodian shall not, however, be required to verify the validity, sufficiency or genuineness of any Mortgage Loan Document.

(v) To consult with the Pittsburgh Bank and recommend corrective action to be taken relative to any Servicer that fails to comply with the terms and conditions of the applicable Servicing Agreement and the Servicing Guide with respect to defaulted Mortgage Loans or the property encumbered as security for Mortgage Loans;

 

(vi) To deliver annually an officer’s certificate of the MPf Provider or an officer of the Master Servicer, certifying as the signer thereof that: the master servicing activities during the preceding calendar year have been reviewed under such officer’s supervision; to the best of such officer’s knowledge, the responsibilities and obligations of the Master Servicer have been performed throughout the year, or, if there has been a default, specifying each such default known to such officer and the nature and status thereof; and that nothing came to such officer’s attention that indicated the Master Servicer was not in compliance with the provisions of the Master Servicing Agreement;

 

-13-


(vii) To notify the Pittsburgh Bank in the event a Servicer has defaulted under the Servicing Agreement or the Servicing Guide and to advise the Pittsburgh Bank of its recommended response to the default;

 

(viii) To maintain or cause the Master Servicer to maintain customary fidelity and other insurance in connection with the performance of the obligations under the Master Servicing Agreement and, upon request, to provide an officer’s certificate certifying that such policy or coverage is in full force and effect; and

 

(ix) To make its books and records relating to the services performed under the Master Servicing Agreement or those of the Master Servicer accessible for inspection and copying by the supervisory agents and examiners of the Finance Board and by the Pittsburgh Bank at any time during normal business hours.

 

As part of its master servicing duties hereunder, the MPF Provider, for the benefit of the Pittsburgh Bank, shall use its best efforts to enforce the obligations of the Master Servicer under the Master Servicing Agreement. Such enforcement shall be in such form and carried out to such an extent and at such time as the MPF Provider, in its good faith business judgment, would require if it were the owner of the related Mortgage Loans. Notwithstanding the MPF Provider’s delegation of master servicing obligations to the Master Servicer pursuant to the Master Servicing Agreement, the MPF Provider shall not be relieved from its master servicing obligations hereunder, and the MPF Provider shall remain obligated and primarily liable to the Pittsburgh Bank for the master servicing of the Mortgage Loans in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement, provided, however, that the MPF Provider shall have no liability arising from or related to its master servicing obligations under Sections 5.1 and 5.2, except for any such liability resulting from the MPF Provider’s or Master Servicer’s negligence or willful misconduct.

 

5.3. Ancillary Support Services of the Program Loans by the MPF Provider.

 

(a) The MPF Provider shall provide ancillary support services with respect to the Program Loans being administered under the MPF Program. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the MPF Provider will provide to the Pittsburgh Bank the specific ancillary support services relating to the MPF Program set forth in this Article V and the FHLB Guide.

 

(b) The MPF Provider represents and warrants to the Pittsburgh Bank that (i) the software used by the MPF Provider in providing ancillary support services with respect to the Program Loans being administered under the MPF Program (the “Servicing Software”) will operate prior to, during and after December 31, 1999 without error relating to date data, including without limitation, date data which represents different centuries or more than one century, (ii) the Servicing Software will not operate abnormally or provide invalid or incorrect results as a result of date data representing different centuries or more than one century, (iii) the Servicing Software is designed to ensure year 2000 capability, including without limitation, date data recognition, calculations which accommodate same century and multi-century formulas and data values, and date data interface values that reflect the century, (iv) the Servicing Software will accurately and correctly manage and manipulate data involving dates, including single

 

-14-


century formulas and multi-century formulas, and will not cause an abnormally functioning or ending scenario within the application or generate incorrect values or invalid results involving such dates, and (v) the Servicing Software will accurately process date/time data from, into and between the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and the years 1999 and 2000, and will accurately perform leap year calculations during and for the twentieth and twenty-first century, including the leap year 2000. Notwithstanding any other provision in this Agreement to the contrary, the MPF Provider’s liability under this Section 5.3. (b) shall be limited to direct compensatory damages and in no event shall the MPF Provider be liable under this Section 5.3. (b) for consequential or punitive damages (except for willful misconduct or gross negligence on the part of the MPF Provider).

 

(c) The MPF Provider shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Pittsburgh Bank such monthly and other periodic reports relating to all Mortgage Loans for which the MPF Provider is providing ancillary support services for the account of the Pittsburgh Bank, containing categories of information and in such format and at such intervals to allow the Pittsburgh Bank to reasonably prepare its required financial and regulatory reports, the specific requirements of which shall be set forth in the FHLB Guide.

 

5.4. Selection of Pittsburgh Bank’s PFIs. The Pittsburgh Bank shall determine those of its members through which it will fund Mortgage Loans or from which it will purchase Mortgage Loans pursuant to the MPF Program, and shall enter into a PFI Agreement with each such member in the form provided by the MPF Provider, subject only to modifications agreed to in writing by the parties hereto and the parties thereto. The MPF Provider reserves the right to revise the form of the PFI Agreement from time to time. The Pittsburgh Bank shall use the most current form of PFI Agreement as supplied to it by the MPF Provider when executing a PFI Agreement with a member. Any changes to the form of the PFI Agreement must be approved in writing by the MPF Provider prior to the execution of the agreement by the Pittsburgh Bank (which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld).

 

5.5. Creditworthiness of PFIs. The Pittsburgh Bank shall be responsible for evaluating the creditworthiness of each of its PFIs to provide the credit enhancement required of a PFI under the MPF Program. The Pittsburgh Bank understands and acknowledges that the performance of each PFI is a risk incident to originating or purchasing Loans pursuant to the MPF Program, and that the profitability of such investments is contingent, in part, on the creditworthiness of the PFIs it selects to do business with under the MPF Program.

 

5.6. Training of Pittsburgh Bank’s PFIs. The Pittsburgh Bank shall be responsible for training the personnel of its PFIs to enable them to participate in the MPF Program as Originators, sellers and servicers in accordance with the Guides. The Pittsburgh Bank shall provide adequate personnel to provide such PFI training. Subject to the limitation in Section 3.1.1, the MPF Provider shall assist the Pittsburgh Bank in designing and organizing its PFI training program, as requested by the Pittsburgh Bank at a cost of $750 per day plus travel and lodging expenses of the MPF Provider’s employees. All PFI training materials shall be approved by the MPF Provider. In the event a Pittsburgh Bank PFI fails to service Program Loans in accordance with the Guides, then to the extent that such servicing problems are not attributable to the Master Servicer, and

 

-15-


provided that the MPF Provider first consults with the Pittsburgh Bank regarding such servicing breach, the Pittsburgh Bank shall pay the MPF Provider for the time spent by the MPF Provider’s staff in resolving such problems at a rate of $750 per day plus travel expenses, if any.

 

5.7. MPF Program Materials. The MPF Provider may revise the form of the PFI Agreements, the Guides or any other MPF Program document at any time, provided that, when appropriate, the effective date of changes to the Guides shall be delayed to allow for the distribution of such changes to all MPF Banks’ participating members. The MPF Provider shall send revisions to the Guides to the Pittsburgh Bank in advance of sending them directly to the Pittsburgh Bank’s PFIs.

 

5.8. Support of Pittsburgh Bank’s PFIs. The MPF Provider shall be responsible for providing operational support to all MPF Banks’ participating members by establishing an MPF Program Service Center (“Service Center”) that can be reached by means of toll-free telephone and facsimile numbers and which will be staffed by MPF Provider personnel during such hours as may be agreed to by the parties from time to time. The MPF Provider shall ensure that the Service Center is adequately staffed to fully service the Pittsburgh Bank’s PFIs in a commercially reasonable manner and with no less service than the MPF Provider is providing to its own participating members.

 

5.9. Execution and Terms of Master Commitments. Upon delivery by a PFI of an estimate of the number, characteristics and dollar amount of Mortgage Loans it will originate for or sell to the Pittsburgh Bank during the term of a proposed Master Commitment, the Pittsburgh Bank will establish the Spread Account percentage, the Maximum Credit Enhancement Amount, the credit enhancement fee and the servicing fee for that Master Commitment in accordance with the Guides. Upon execution of a Master Commitment, the Pittsburgh Bank will provide timely notification of the Master Commitment to the Service Center whose personnel will then enter it into the MPF Program system in accordance with the Guides.

 

5.10. Delivery Commitments, Pricing and Quality Control.

 

5.10.1. Delivery Commitments. The MPF Provider’s Service Center will publish Rate and Fee Schedules for Agency Loans as provided for in the Guides which will be made available to the Pittsburgh Bank and its PFIs. Rate and Fee Schedules for Closed Loans shall be calculated by the MPF Provider for each Delivery Commitment when the Mortgage Loans have been analyzed and a settlement date has been agreed upon by the Pittsburgh Bank and its PFI and communicated to the MPF Provider. Rate and Fee Schedules are subject to change as provided for in the Guides. The Pittsburgh Bank’s PFIs will contact the Service Center to obtain and fill Delivery Commitments. The Service Center will provide regular reports of all Delivery Commitment activities of the Pittsburgh Bank’s PFIs to the Pittsburgh Bank, either electronically or by facsimile, including, without limitation, all requests for funding of individual Mortgage Loans made by Pittsburgh Bank’s PFIs. The Pittsburgh Bank shall fund all Mortgage Loans originated by its PFIs in accordance with the requirements of the Guides. The Service Center will compute any Pairoff Fees (defined in the Guides) that are owed to the Pittsburgh Bank and will report these amounts to the Pittsburgh Bank. The Pittsburgh Bank shall be responsible for collecting Pairoff Fees from its PFIs.

 

-16-


5.10.2. Pricing of Mortgage Loans. Pursuant to the delegation of pricing authority established by the Finance Board in Resolution No. 98-41, dated September 23, 1998, the Pittsburgh Bank has elected to utilize the pricing methodology developed by the MPF Provider. Thus, the MPF Provider shall be responsible for the calculation and publication of the prices applicable to both Agency Loans and Closed Loans.

 

5.10.3. Quality Control and Loss Mitigation. The MPF Provider will perform, or cause to be performed, the same level of quality control review for the Pittsburgh Bank’s Mortgage Loans as it performs, or has performed, for its own Mortgage Loans and will communicate the results of its quality control activities promptly to the persons designated by the Pittsburgh Bank to receive such reports. The MPF Provider will review the servicing and loss mitigation oversight of the Pittsburgh Bank’s Mortgage Loans in the same manner as it reviews the servicing and loss mitigation oversight of its own Mortgage Loans and will provide the Pittsburgh Bank with prompt reports of its reviews. The Pittsburgh Bank will be responsible for managing the performance of its PFIs to assure a commercially reasonable standard of performance in the origination and servicing of Mortgage Loans under the MPF Program, including the performance of loss mitigation oversight. Neither the MPF Provider nor any of its shareholders, directors, officers, employees or agents shall be liable to the Pittsburgh Bank for any obligation, undertaking, act or judgment of any PFI. The obligation of the Pittsburgh Bank to manage its PFIs’ performance of these activities with respect to Mortgage Loans in the MPF Program shall survive termination of this Agreement.

 

5.11. Transactional Relationships.

 

5.11.1. Maintenance of an Account at the MPF Provider. The Pittsburgh Bank will establish and maintain the Clearing Account with the MPF Provider.

 

5.11.2. Funding of Pittsburgh Bank’s Share of Expenses. The Pittsburgh Bank will fund the Clearing Account sufficiently from time to time upon demand of the MPF Provider. The Pittsburgh Bank hereby consents to the MPF Provider withdrawing funds from such account from time to time to satisfy the Pittsburgh Bank’s obligations to pay its obligations under this Agreement (whether or not the particular provision of this Agreement makes reference to such right of the MPF Provider to effect such satisfaction by withdrawal from the Pittsburgh Bank’s Clearing Account, and whether or not any such withdrawal shall cause the balance in the Pittsburgh Bank’s Clearing Account to become negative).

 

5.11.3. Interest on Clearing Account. The MPF Provider will credit to the Pittsburgh Bank’s Clearing Account interest on the outstanding balance thereof from time to time at the rate of interest customarily paid by the MPF Provider on its DID accounts from time to time (the “DID Rate”).

 

-17-


5.11.4. Overdrafts. In the event that any withdrawal from the Pittsburgh Bank’s Clearing Account shall cause the balance in such account to become negative, such deficit shall be deemed a loan from the MPF Provider to the Pittsburgh Bank, payable upon demand and bearing interest at the overdraft rate established by the MPF Provider for all its DID accounts.

 

5.12. Relationship of the Parties; Restrictions on Transfers. The MPF Provider is not an agent of the Pittsburgh Bank except with respect to its obligations in Sections 5.1. and 5.2., and the MPF Provider shall have no fiduciary obligations to the Pittsburgh Bank except with respect to its custodial duty as provided in Section 5.1., and the Pittsburgh Bank shall have no fiduciary obligations to the MPF Provider except with respect to the obligations of Pittsburgh Bank set forth in Section 7.4.(c) of this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Pittsburgh Bank acknowledges that it will not sell or transfer any of its Program Loans or its rights under this Agreement, or any portion of any thereof or any interest in any thereof, except (i) to another FHLB, (ii) to an institutional third party investor approved of in writing by the MPF Provider, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, or (iii) to the PFIs providing the credit enhancement for such Mortgage Loans, provided, however, that for sales or transfers under clauses (i) and (ii), the Pittsburgh Bank shall continue to monitor the creditworthiness of its PFIs and, when appropriate to protect the interests of the holders of the Mortgage Loans, demand and hold collateral to secure any of its PFI’s obligations under their respective PFI Agreements. Without limiting the foregoing, if the Pittsburgh Bank elects to transfer participations other than on a Master Commitment basis in its Program Loans, the MPF Provider will continue to provide reports defined by Master Commitment and the Pittsburgh Bank shall be responsible for any additional reporting necessitated by such participations. Further, the parties acknowledge that (i) the method for obtaining a security interest in a PFI’s assets under the PFI Agreement is by the incorporation by reference into that document of the PFI’s Advances, Collateral Pledge and Security Agreement executed with the Pittsburgh Bank (the “Security Agreement”), and (ii) pursuant to the Security Agreement, all collateral subject to the security interest created thereby secures all the obligations of a PFI to the Pittsburgh Bank on a pari passu basis, including the credit enhancement and other obligations arising under the PFI Agreement and the obligation to repay advances made by the Pittsburgh Bank, unless (x) collateral is specifically pledged to secure the PFI’s credit enhancement obligations under the PFI Agreement or some other specific obligation, and (y) the MPF Provider is notified of the specific collateral pledge, in which case, the specifically pledged collateral will first secure the specifically collateralized obligation.

 

5.13. Use of Intellectual Property.

 

(a) The MPF Provider hereby licenses to the Pittsburgh Bank the limited right to use the trademarks “MORTGAGE PARTNERSHIP FINANCE” and “MPF” (individually, a “Mark” and together, the “Marks”) subject to the following terms and conditions:

 

(i) The term of this license shall be the same as this Agreement. Upon termination of this license, all rights in and to the Marks shall automatically revert to the MPF Provider.

 

-18-


(ii) When using either of the Marks in any external communications, including letters, agreements, program descriptions and marketing materials, the Pittsburgh Bank agrees to adhere to the standards governing the use of the Marks set forth in the FHLB Guide.

 

(iii) The MPF Provider reserves the right to inspect or monitor the use of the Marks and the services provided in connection with the Marks to assure compliance with this Agreement and the FHLB Guide.

 

(iv) The Pittsburgh Bank hereby recognizes the value of the goodwill associated with the Marks and acknowledges that all rights in and to the Marks belong exclusively to the MPF Provider and that the Marks may have acquired secondary meaning in the mind of the public. The Pittsburgh Bank agrees, during the term of this Agreement and thereafter, never to attack or assist any one else in attacking the rights of the MPF Provider in the Marks or the validity of the license of the Marks being granted herein.

 

(b) Should the Pittsburgh Bank elect the option to use the MPF System as provided in Section 7.3.2., prior to such use of the MPF Provider’s proprietary intellectual property, the Pittsburgh Bank shall execute a licensing agreement in form customary in the software industry, and on terms reasonably satisfactory to the MPF Provider.

The Pittsburgh Bank shall inform the MPF Provider of any adverse changes in the financial condition of such PFIs of which it becomes aware.

-24-


creditworthiness of its PFIs will have been evaluated in connection with the credit enhancements provided for any and all Program Loans which it may sell or participate to the MPF Provider under the terms of this Agreement, in the same way as it evaluates the creditworthiness of its PFIs to extend advances.

The Pittsburgh Bank hereby acknowledges that the MPF Provider has the need to have the credit enhancement obligations of any Pittsburgh Bank PFI relating to purchased Program Loans secured if the creditworthiness of such Pittsburgh Bank PFI should become impaired. To assist the MPF Provider in ascertaining the creditworthiness of Pittsburgh Bank PFIs, the Pittsburgh Bank agrees to notify the MPF Provider of any adverse changes in the financial condition of those PFIs who provide credit enhancements for any sold Program Loans and to share relevant credit assessments and information on those PFI with the MPF Provider.
