WASHINGTON — Former Freddie Mac chief executive David Moffett is temporarily returning to the government-sponsored enterprise to help make sure it files its first quarter financial results on time.

Freddie did not offer details on how long Moffett will work for the GSE but said his title would be a consultant to John Koskinen, the interim chief executive.
