(a) Any agency may request that funds due and payable to a debtor by FHFA be administratively offset in order to collect a debt owed to such agency by the debtor.
(b) FHFA shall initiate the requested administrative offset only upon:
(1) Receipt of written certification from the creditor agency that:
(i) The debtor owes the debt, including the amount and basis of the debt;
(ii) The agency has prescribed regulations for the exercise of administrative offset; and
(iii) The agency has complied with its own administrative offset regulations and with the applicable provisions of the FCCS, including providing any required hearing or review.
