SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

This notice informs the public of NCUA's proposal to establish and maintain a new system of records. The proposed new system is being established under NCUA's authority in the Federal Credit Union Act, 12 U.S.C. 1751, et seq. The information collected in the NCUA Connect, NCUA-21 system of records is designed to provide a one-stop entry point for internal and external users, which should enhance user experience, while also streamlining security activities. This notice satisfies the Privacy Act requirement that an agency publish a system of records notice in the Federal Register when there is an addition to the agency's systems of records. The format of NCUA Connect, NCUA-21 aligns with the guidance set forth in OMB Circular A-108. NCUA-21 and all of NCUA's Standard Routine Uses are published in full below. All of the NCUA's SORNs are available at www.ncua.gov.
