SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Republication To Delete and Update Privacy Act Systems of Records

Subsequent reviews for 12 systems of records resulted in an update to 3 systems of records and a deletion of 9 systems of records. Final analysis concluded with removing obsolete documentation from the Department's system of records repository, refining categories of information and republishing information in a clear and cohesive format, and implementing new coding schemes for each systems of records, in an effort to streamline and present each system of records in a coding structure that easily differentiate program specific systems of records. These notices were last published in the Federal Register under separate citations. The Federal Register publications and citations associated Start Printed Page 10826with each notice can be viewed by going to the Department's Privacy Web site.[1]

Deleted Systems—The 9 systems deleted by this republication, and their existing coding structure are listed as follows:

1. HUD/H-3 Single Family Housing Monitoring System

2. HUD/H-8 Property Rental Files

3. HUD/DEPT-20 Single Family Homeownership Assistance Application and Recertification (HARAS)

4. HUD/DEPT-22 Housing Counseling, April 22, 1982

5. HUD/DEPT-23 Single-Family Research Files

8. HUD/HS-57 (A80N)—Single Family Mortgage Notes System

9. HUD/HS-60 Nonprofit Data Management System (NPDMS) System

Updated Systems—This following notices supersede the previously published notices. The 3 systems modified by this republication and their new coding structure are listed as follows:

1. HSNG.SF/HWAA.01 Single Family Acquired Asset Management System (Previously SAMS A80s, published June 20, 2006)

2. HSNG.SF/HWAA.02 Single Family Insurance System CLAIMS Subsystem (HUD/SFH-02, Published November 20, 2007)

3. HSNG.SF/HUF.01 Asset Disposition and Management System (Previously HUD/HS-58, Published October 21, 2008)

These systems are those maintained by HUD that included or includes personally identifiable information provided by individuals from which information was or is retrieved by a name of unique identifier. The system revisions encompass programs and services of the Department's data collection and management practices. Under this republication, the Department proposes to update 3 Privacy Act systems of records, and delete 9 obsolete systems of records, and implement a new coding structure for updated systems of records.

This republication allows HUD to organize and re-publish up-to-date information for these systems of records in a more useful format. The system modifications and deletions incorporate Federal privacy requirements, and HUD policy requirements. The Privacy Act provides certain safeguards for an individual against and invasion of personal privacy by requiring Federal agencies to protect records contained in an agency system of records from unauthorized disclosure, ensure that information is current for its intended use, and that adequate safeguards are provided to prevent misuse of such information. Additionally, the updates reflect the Department's focus on industry best practices in protecting the personal privacy of the individuals covered by each system notification. This notice for each system of records state the name and location of the record system, the authority for and manner of it operations, the categories of individuals that it covers, the type of records that it contain, the sources of the information for those records, the routines uses of each systems of records, and the system of records exemption types. In addition, each notice include the business address of the HUD officials who will inform interested persons of the procedures whereby they may gain access to and/or request amendments to records pertaining to them. The routine uses that apply to this publication are reiterated based on past publication to clearly communicate the ways in which HUD continues to conducts some of its business practices.

Since the republication of system of records notices does not meet the threshold requirements for new or amended system a report was not submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, and the House Committee on Government Reform as instructed by Paragraph 4c of Appendix l to OMB Circular No. A-130, “Federal Agencies Responsibilities for Maintaining Records About Individuals,” July 25, 1994 (59 FR 37914).

Single Family Insurance System—Claims Subsystem (A43C).

System Location:

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street SW., Washington, DC 20410, and at the Single Family Insurance System—Claims Subsystem software is located on HUD's mainframe, which is located at 3200 Kanawha Turnpike. Building 6000, South Charleston, WV 25303. Backup facilities and infrastructure services are provided by SUNGUARD (184 Railroad Drive, Warminster, PA 18974) and Lockheed Martin (4701 Forbes Boulevard, Lanham, MD 20706) respectively.

Categories of Individuals Covered by the System:

A43C maintains data on mortgagors that have obtained a HUD insured mortgage. The system also records the servicer and holder of HUD insured mortgages.

Categories of Records in the System:

The Single Family Insurance System—Claims Subsystem includes mortgagor data such as FHA case number, mortgagor name, mortgagor Social Security Number, property address, and mortgage amount. Stored holder information includes the holder mortgagee name, holder number, holder address, and mortgagee reference number. Stored servicer information includes the servicer mortgagee name, servicer number, and servicer address.

Authority for Maintenance of the System:

U.S. Housing Act of 1937 as amended (Pub. L. 75-412); National Housing Act of 1934; 24 CFR 203.35 (2013); 24 CFR 200.6 (2013); and 24 CFR 5.216 (2013).

Description and System Purposes:

The Single Family Insurance System—Claims Subsystem (CLAIMS) processes single family (SF) insurance claims against defaulted loans. CLAIMS also processes accounts receivables relating to SF claims, performs collection activities, processes cash receipts, and records accounts receivable activities as well as providing accounting information to users. The claims process is initiated when a servicing mortgagee completes and submits an application for Single Family Insurance Benefits (HUD Form 27011) to HUD headquarters, via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), the FHA Connection, or paper. Each type of claim requires the submission of a Part A (Initial Application) and Part B (Fiscal Data). When submitting a paper conveyance claim, a Title Approval Letter (TAL) must accompany the claim. However, when transmitting the claim through EDI, the TAL is not submitted with the conveyance claim because the title approval data from A80S-Single Family Acquired Asset Management System (SAMS) is stored in an authorization file. Collection of a borrower's PII isn't required for performance of A43C's objective per say. A43C is a subset of A43 which is the system of record for insured single family loans. Prior to payment of claim for an insured loan through A43C, the loan needs to first be issued and insured Start Printed Page 10828through A43. And in the process of the borrower obtaining an FHA-insured loan, their PII is required to be collected.
