USDA Guaranteed Underwriting System (GUS) - Document Upload Process

This serves as a reminder that lenders must ensure that all required documentation is uploaded into GUS at or before the time of final submission to USDA. The Agency will not review the request until the required documents have been successfully uploaded.

Users are reminded to separate all origination documents into two files for upload into GUS as follows:

1) Uniform Residential Appraisal Report (URAR)

  • Upload as Type of Document (Index Value) = 10002 Appraisal Report
  • Color photos are required

2) All other required origination documents

  • Upload as Type of Document (Index Value) = 10006 Underwriting
  • Required documents are determined by the type of submission (manual or GUS) and the GUS Underwriting Findings Report (GUS loans only)
  • Documents must be arranged/ordered in accordance with HB-1-3555 Attachment 15-A, “Origination Stacking Order Checklist,” excluding the URAR

Thank you for your support of the Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program.
