SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Pursuant to section 313 of Title III of the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, Public Law 111-203-July 21, 2010 (the Act), the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) was abolished. Start Printed Page 56502On July 21, 2011, the transfer date under section 1062 of the Act, and pursuant to section 312 of the Act, the OTS was integrated into the OCC, and all functions of the OTS and the Director of the OTS related to Federal savings associations (and not otherwise transferred to another agency pursuant to the Act) were transferred to the OCC and the Comptroller of the Currency, including all rulemaking authority of the OTS and the Director of the OTS, respectively, relating to savings associations.

Also pursuant to section 312 of the Act, the OCC and the Comptroller succeed in all powers, authorities, rights and duties that were vested in the OTS and the Director of the OTS on the day before the transfer date relating to the functions transferred. Thus, the OCC, a bureau of the Treasury Department, is charged with assuring the safety and soundness of, and compliance with laws and regulations, fair access to financial services, and fair treatment of customers by, the institutions, including national banks and Federal savings associations, and other persons subject to its jurisdiction. See 12 U.S.C. (as amended by section 324 of the Act).

Thus, as of July 21, 2011, the OCC is responsible for the supervision of both national banks and Federal savings associations. Accordingly, to reflect the integration of the OTS into the OCC, the OCC is adding a category of individuals (those individuals related to Federal savings associations) to the following systems of records, which previously covered individuals related to national banks: Treasury/CC .210—Bank Securities Dealers System; Treasury/CC .220—Section 914 Tracking System; Treasury/CC .600—Consumer Complaint and Inquiry System. The OCC is also making conforming changes, as necessary, under “Purposes,” “Authority for Maintenance of the System,” and “Routine Uses” of the systems of records notices as necessary to capture the new category of individuals.

Additionally, the OCC is making other changes to the Treasury/CC .220—“Section 914 Tracking System” system of records, apart from the changes being made to reflect the integration of the OTS into the OCC. The OCC is renaming the system to more accurately reflect the information contained in the system. The system will no longer be called Treasury/CC .220—“Section 914 Tracking System” and will instead be called Treasury/CC .220—“Notices of Proposed Changes in Employees, Officers and Directors Tracking System.” The OCC is also adding new categories of individuals to the system, beyond the new category described above. The system currently includes individuals who file notices pursuant to 12 CFR 5.51. However, the OCC has the authority under other laws and regulations (i.e. 12 CFR 5.20 and 12 U.S.C. 1818(b)) to require the entities it supervises to file notices of changes in employees, officers and directors. Thus, the OCC is broadening the categories of individuals covered by the system so that the OCC may track notices filed under each relevant authority, which will allow the OCC to better carry out its statutory and regulatory responsibilities. In addition, two routine uses for the system will also be altered to conform to the appropriate new categories of individuals.

The System notices were last published in their entirety in the Federal Register, July 18, 2008 (Volume 73, Number 139) pp. 41402-41414.

As required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) of the Privacy Act, the report of altered systems of records has been submitted to the Committee on Government Reform of the House of Representatives, the Committee on Governmental Affairs of the Senate, and the Office of Management and Budget, pursuant to Appendix I to OMB Circular A-130, “Federal Agency Responsibilities for Maintaining Records About Individuals,” dated November 30, 2000.

For the reasons set forth in this preamble, the Department proposes to alter systems of records entitled “CC .210—Bank Securities Dealers System,” “CC .220—Section 914 Tracking System;” and “CC .600—Consumer Complaint and Inquiry Information System” as follows:
