Office of Inspector General; Privacy Act of 1974; Notification of the Office of Inspector General Intent To Consolidate, Update, Delete, and Implement Privacy Act Systems of Records
Document Number: 2010-32769
Type: Notice
Date: 2010-12-29
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), notice is hereby given that HUD's Office of Inspector General (OIG) proposes to consolidate, update and delete Systems of Records (SORs) within its existing repository of SORs, and establish a new SORs to be maintained by the 13 Regional Special Agents in Charge nationwide and the Deputy Assistant Inspector General for Investigations in Washington, D.C. The OIG, pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, currently maintains six SORs: (1) Investigative Files of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/OIG-1); (2) Hotline Complaint Files of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/ OIG-2); (3) Name Indices System of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/OIG-3); (4) Independent Auditor Monitoring Files of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/OIG-4); (5) Auto Audit of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/OIG-5); and (6) Auto Investigation of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/OIG-6). The notice for these SORs was last published on May 22, 2000 (65 FR 33242). The OIG also proposes to create a seventh system of records, OIG Giglio Information File (HUD/ OIG-7). Accordingly, the notice, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (11), of the establishment of a new system of records follows: HUD OIG is updating its Giglio Policy and is thereby creating a new system of records for which no public notice consistent with the provisions of 5 U.S.C. section 552(e)(4) and (11) has been published, OIG Giglio Information File, HUD/OIG-7. The file is being created to ensure that, upon the request of a Requesting Official within the Department of Justice, OIG Giglio Officials are able to provide the information necessary to allow the prosecuting attorneys to meet their constitutional obligations under the United States Supreme Court case of Giglio v. United States, 405 U.S. 150 (1972), and the case law following that decision. A new routine use was established for prior 6 SORs effective October 15, 2007, as noticed in the Federal Register on September 14, 2007 (72 FR 52572). The new routine use permits disclosure of records to respond to breach of personally identifiable information. This consolidation refers to that routine uses for all 7 OIG SORs. This consolidation and update amends routine use 3 for HUD/ OIG-1, HUD/OIG-2, HUD/OIG-3, HUD/OIG-4, HUD/OIG-5, and HUD/OIG-6 to allow release of records to assist housing authorities who take personnel actions based on an OIG audit or investigation. An eleventh routine use is added to HUD/OIG-1, HUD/OIG-2, HUD/OIG- 3, HUD/OIG/5, and HUD/OIG-6 to allow release of information to licensing authorities regulating professional services, when the records reveal conduct related to activities associated with a HUD program that is appropriate for possible administrative or disciplinary sanctions, such as license revocation. The OIG has also changed the name of HUD/OIG-6, Autoinvestigation of the Office of Inspector General to HUD/OIG-6 Autoinvestigation and the Case Management Information SubSystem (CMISS), while maintaining the same routine uses and attributes of HUD/OIG-6. CMISS is an updated data system of the investigative case files, formerly maintained in Auto Investigation, which will continue to maintain its information and data. This consolidation also updates routine use 9 due to legislation (IG Reform Act of 2008) enacted in 2008 changing the name of the President's Council on Integrity and Efficiency (PCIE) to the Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) and corrects the disposition schedule. The OIG also deletes two obsolete SORs from its inventory, the Investigation Files (HUD/DEPT 24) and Audit Planning and Operations systems (HUD/DEPT-77). This notice serves to update the OIG repository of SORs and reflects the current posture of each SOR. Additionally, this notice deletes and supersedes all prior notifications for the SORs referenced in this publication.

This notice is in accordance with regulations of the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ). Federal agencies having jurisdiction by law, special expertise, or other special interest should report their interests and indicate their readiness to aid in the EIS effort as a ``Cooperating Agency.''

Conforming Changes to Applicant Submission Requirements; Implementing Federal Financial Report and Central Contractor Registration Requirements
Document Number: 2010-30843
Type: Rule
Date: 2010-12-08
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
This final rule follows publication of a July 15, 2010, interim rule that revised HUD regulations to reference the new governmentwide Federal Financial Report (FFR) approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). The FFR consolidates requirements from the OMB-issued Standard Forms SF-269, SF-269A, SF-272, and SF-272A into a single governmentwide form. In incorporating reference to the new FFR in its regulations, HUD amended its regulations to remove references to old and outdated forms that are no longer in use. The July 15, 2010, interim rule also codified the requirement that applicants for HUD assistance possess an active Central Contractor Registration (CCR). HUD is adopting the interim rule without change.
