SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Department is proposing to amend its System of Records entitled “Loan Guaranty Home, Condominium and Manufactured Home Loan Applicants Records, Specially Adapted Housing Applicant Records and Vendee Loan Applicant Records—VA (55VA26),” by adding a new policy and practice for storing of records in the System to permit VA to maintain VA-guaranteed, insured, direct, and vendee loan records in individual folders on paper documents, automated storage media, and as electronically scanned documents.

VA has determined that it may destroy original paper documents/records after the information has been converted to an electronic medium and verified as a necessary and proper means of storage, and that the specific storage proposed for electronically scanned documents is appropriate.

A copy of the revised system notice has been sent to the House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs, and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) and guidelines issued by OMB (59 FR 37906, 3791618, July 25, 1994.)

The proposed storage will be added to the system of records entitled “Loan Guaranty Home, Condominium and Manufactured Home Loan Applicant Records, Specially Adapted Housing Applicant Records, and Vendee Loan Applicant Records—VA (55VA26)” as published at 40 FR 38095, August 26, 1975, and amended at 48 FR 49961, October 28, 1983; 51 FR 24781, July 8, 1986; 51 FR 28289, August 6, 1986; 52 FR 721, January 8, 1987; 53 FR 49818, December 9, 1988; 56 FR 2064, January 18, 1991; 56 FR 15666, April 17, 1991; 58 FR 50629, September 28, 1993; 62 FR 35545, July 1, 1997, and 67 FR 72721, December 6, 2002.
