SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

(1) NCUA Is Proposing To Establish a New System of Records

In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended, NCUA is issuing public notice of its intent to establish a new system of records, NCUA Financial and Acquisition Management System, NCUA-19. The system of records described in this notice maintains records related to NCUA's core financial and acquisition system, and is used to ensure that all of NCUA's obligations and expenditures conform with laws, existing rules and regulations, and good business practices.

(2) NCUA Is Proposing To Add Three Routine Uses to its Standard Routine Uses

As a part of NCUA's ongoing privacy program efforts, NCUA has determined that its Standard Routine Uses should be updated to include three new routine uses. The first new routine use, which will be Standard Routine Use #10, will permit NCUA to share information with contractors, grantees, and interns, when necessary to accomplish an agency function. Individuals provided information under this routine use will be subject to the same Privacy Act requirements and limitations on disclosure as are applicable to NCUA employees.

The second new routine use, which will be Standard Routine Use #11, will permit NCUA to share information with appropriate parties in response to a federal data breach. The addition of this routine use increases NCUA's compliance with OMB M-07-16.

The third routine use, which will be Standard Routine Use #12, will permit NCUA to share information with the Office of Management and Budget pursuant to OMB Circular A-19.

For convenience, the proposed new system of records, “NCUA Financial and Acquisition Management System, NCUA-19,” and NCUA's Standard Routine Uses, with the proposed new routine uses italicized, are published below.

The records are kept in limited access areas during duty hours and in locked file cabinets and/or locked offices or file rooms at all other times.
