PURPOSES:

FHEO TEAPOTS is the system that maintains case file data when further investigation is warranted, under a filed housing discrimination complaint. This is where the housing discrimination complaint inquiries and case files are documented and stored during the investigation process. Information on the complainants is collected on a case-by-case basis only if relevant to the particular case. The origination of a compliant begins with the origination of the HUD Form 903. The HUD Form 903 is used for filing discrimination complaints over unfair housing practices. This form is available in paper and on-line. The public may submit a HUD Form 903 (a housing discrimination complaint form) via the internet or by mail. HUD Form 903 collects initial potential case information for assessment and turns the information over to the appropriate regional office jurisdiction. Information gathered through the HUD Form 903 system opens an inquiry with FHEO that is explored through further discussion between FHEO staff and the complainant. These discussions gather additional data that establish jurisdiction and determine whether or not to launch an investigation. HUD's FHEO also use these records within TEAPOT's to monitor the quality of the investigations performed by authorized non-Federal agencies, and to determine the amount these agencies should be paid for performing the investigating. A paper case file that includes the information tracked in TEAPOTS, as well as additional information, is maintained outside of TEAPOTS.

SYSTEM OF RECORDS NO.:

OIG/GIP.02

SYSTEM NAME:

Auto Investigation and Case Management Information Subsystem (AI/CMISS).

SYSTEM LOCATION:

HUD OIG Headquarters, 451 Seventh Street SW., Washington DC.

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:

Individuals covered consist of: (1) HUD program participants and HUD employees who are associated with an activity that OIG is investigating or evaluating; (2) requesters of an OIG investigative or other activity; and (3) persons and entities performing some other role of significance to the OIG's efforts, such as relatives or business associates of HUD program participants or employees, potential witnesses, or persons who represent legal entities that are connected to an OIG investigation or other activity. The system also tracks information pertaining to OIG staff handling the investigation or other activity, and may contain contact names for relevant staff in other agencies.

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:

Records consist of investigatory material compiled and/or generated for law enforcement purposes in connection with investigations and other activities performed by OIG staff. These materials include information regarding the planning, conduct and prosecution of investigations of HUD program participants and employees, legal assistance requests, information requests, responses to such requests, reports of investigations, etc. Data resources include the individual's name, Social Security Number, date of birth, home address, home telephone number, personal email address, Employee Identification Number, Tax Identification, Driver License Number and name, passport information, State Identification, Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Information System, Federal Bureau Investigation Number ; Race/ethnicity, Gender, Employment History, Education, Income, and Financial information.

AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM:

The Inspector General Act of 1978 authorizes the Inspector General to conduct, supervise and coordinate audits and investigations relating to the programs and operations of HUD, to engage in other activities that promote economy and efficiency in the programs and operations of HUD, and to receive and investigate complaints concerning possible violations of law, rules, or regulations, or mismanagement, gross waste of funds, abuse of authority, or a substantial or specific danger to the public health or safety.

PURPOSES:

AI/CMISS provides HUD OIG Investigations with an automated system which manages cases under investigation from their inception to their closing through a centralized data repository of case information. AI/CMISS and its environment is a secure environment where access to information is controlled through a formal process of checks and authorizations involving a hierarchical supervisory structure. Special Agents in Charge (SAC), Assistant Special Agents in Charge (ASAC), Supervisory Forensic Auditors (SFA), Forensic Auditors (FA), Special Agents (SA) and support staff, document all steps in their assigned activities. Additionally, due to judicial involvement in some of the cases, the files kept and maintained by HUD OIG may be made available to the courts under discovery. AI/CMISS provides data that is currently available through the intranet to the investigators and auditors. This provides a method for remote HUD OIG users and traveling employees to access the AI/CMISS systems from their laptops regardless of whether or not they are located within a HUD OIG office. Both Systems support the HUD OIG requirement to maintain a detailed audit trail of cases to closure. This requires a system, which will be capable of capturing and maintaining data integrity during the complete case cycle while ensuring data privacy and confidentiality.

ETO captured pertinent data relating to family self-sufficiency, permanent housing status and service needs. The data for ETO was collected to support DHAP-Ike grantees in their case management efforts and HUD staff in their program monitoring activities and providing required reports to FEMA in fulfillment of its responsibilities outlined within the Inter Agency Agreement (IAA). The case manager used this information to identify appropriate service referrals, to help prepare clients for the end of DHAP- Ike case management which occurred on September 30, 2011. As such, the DHAP-Ike still requires further analysis and evaluation by the Department's Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R), Program Management and Research Division to allow research and evaluation of the national program outcomes. In such cases, PD&R and its approved researchers will further evaluate the data presented by DHAP- Ike to produce research reports. These reports will include aggregate level data based on higher level demographic variables that will not disclose information that can be used to identify any individual represented in the data retained by HUD. The records stored hold pertinent data records relating to family self-sufficiency, permanent housing status and service needs. The system was procured through contract number: C-DEN-02332 which allowed grantees to implement and report case management services for FEMA's DHAP- Ike program, for which HUD was the servicing agent. The system and data input by grantees assisted with the administration of rental housing assistance and case management services to individuals and families whose residences were rendered uninhabitable as a result of Hurricanes Gustav and Ike.
