In FY 2004, the fed. govít. made or guaranteed $84 billion in loans for post-secondary educ. through 2 loan programs -- the Fed. Family Ed. Loan Program (FFELP) and the Fed. Direct Loan Program (FDLP). Under FFELP, private lenders fund the loans and the govít. guarantees them a minimum yield and repayment if borrowers default. When the interest rate paid by borrowers is lower than the guaranteed minimum yield, the govít. pays lenders special allowance payments (SAP). Under FDLP, the U.S. Treasury funds the loans that are originated through participating schools. Under the Fed. Credit Reform Act (FCRA) of 1990 the govít. calculates the net cost of extending or guaranteeing credit over the life of a loan, called a subsidy cost. Agencies generally update, or re-estimate, subsidy costs annually to include actual program results and adjust future program estimates. This report examined: (1) whether re-estimated subsidy costs have differed from original estimates for FFELP and FDLP loans disbursed in FY 1994 through 2004; (2) what factors explain changes between re-estimated and original subsidy rates; and (3) which fed. costs and revenues associated with the student loan programs are not included in subsidy cost estimates. Charts and tables.
