ACTION: Notice of a computer matching program between the Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Department of Education. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 (Pub. L. 100–503), and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Guidelines on the Conduct of Matching Programs (54 FR 25818 (June 19, 1989); and OMB Bulletin 89–22, ‘‘Instructions on Reporting Computer Matching Programs to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Congress and the Public,’’ HUD is issuing a public notice of its intent to conduct a recurring computer matching program with the Department of Education to utilize a computer information system of HUD, the Credit Alert Interactive Voice Response System (CAIVRS), with the Department of Education’s debtor files. This match will allow prescreening of applicants for loans issued by or guaranteed by the federal government to ascertain if the applicant is delinquent in paying a debt owed to or insured by the federal government for HUD or the Department of Education for direct or guaranteed loans. Before granting a loan, the lending agency and/or the authorized lending institution will be able to interrogate the CAIVRS debtor file which contains E:\FR\FM\29JNN1.SGM 29JNN1 37424 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 124 / Wednesday, June 29, 2005 / Notices delinquent debt information from the Departments of Agriculture, Education, Veteran Affairs, the Small Business Administration and judgment lien data from the Department of Justice, and verify that the applicant is not in default on a Federal judgment or delinquent on direct or guaranteed loans of participating Federal agencies. This match will allow prescreening of applicants for loans issued by or guaranteed by the federal government to ascertain if the applicant is delinquent in paying a debt owed to or insured by the federal government. Authorized users do a prescreening of CAIVRS to determine a loan applicant’s credit status with the federal government. As a result of the information produced by this match, the authorized users may not deny, terminate, or make a final decision on any loan assistance to an applicant or take other adverse action against such applicant, until an officer or employee of such agency has independently verified such information.

Authority: HUD has authority to collect and review mortgage data pursuant to the National Housing Act, as amended, 12 U.S.C. 1701 et seq., and related laws. The Department of Education oversees and manages federal student aid programs pursuant to the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, 20 U.S.C. 1001 et seq. This computer matching will be conducted pursuant to Pub. L. 100–503, ‘‘The Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988,’’ as amended, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circulars A– 129 (Managing Federal Credit Programs) and A–70 (Policies and Guidelines for Federal Credit Programs). One of the purposes of all Executive departments and agencies is to implement efficient management practices for Federal Credit Programs. OMB Circulars A–129 and A–70 were issued under the authority of the Budget and Accounting Act of 1921, as amended; the Budget and Accounting Act of 1950, as amended; the Debt Collection Act of 1982 (Pub. L. 97–365), as amended by the Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104–134, section 31001); and the Deficit Reduction Act of 1984, as amended. Objectives To Be Met By the Matching Program: The matching program will allow the Department of Education access to a system that permits prescreening of applicants for loans issued by or guaranteed by the federal government to ascertain if the applicant is delinquent in paying a debt owed to or insured by the government. In addition, HUD will be provided access to the Department of Education’s debtor data for prescreening purposes. Records To Be Matched: HUD will utilize its system of records entitled HUD/DEPT–2, Accounting Records. The debtor files for HUD programs involved are included in this system of records. HUD’s debtor files contain information on borrowers and co-borrowers who are currently in default (at least 90 days delinquent on their loans); or who have any outstanding claims paid during the last three years on insured or guaranteed home mortgage loans under Title II of the National Housing Act; or individuals who have had a claim paid in the last three years on a loan under PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Title I of the National Housing Act.

The Department of Education will provide HUD with debtor files contained in its system of records (Higher Education Act, Title IV Program File, 18–40–0024). HUD is maintaining the Department of Education’s records only as a ministerial action on behalf of the Department of Education, not as part of HUD’s HUD/DEPT–2 system of records. The Department of Education’s data contain information on individuals who have defaulted on their guaranteed loans. The Department of Education will retain ownership and responsibility for their system of records that they place with HUD. HUD serves only as a record location and routine use recipient for the Department of Education’s data. Notice Procedures: HUD and the Department of Education have separate notification procedures. When the federal credit being sought is a HUD/ FHA mortgage, HUD will notify individuals at the time of application (ensuring that routine use appears on the application form). The Department of Education will notify individuals at the time of application for federal student loan programs that their records will be matched to determine whether they are delinquent or in default on a federal debt. HUD and the Department of Education will also publish notices concerning routine use disclosures in the Federal Register to inform individuals that a computer match may be performed to determine a loan applicant’s credit status with the Federal government. Categories of Records/Individuals Involved: The debtor records include these data elements: SSN, claim number, the Department of Education’s Regional Office Code, Collection Agency Code, program code, and indication of indebtedness. Categories of records include: records of claims and defaults, repayment agreements, credit reports, financial statements, and records of foreclosures. Categories of individuals include former mortgagors and purchasers of HUD-owned properties, manufactured (mobile) home and home improvement loan debtors who are delinquent or in default on their loans, and rehabilitation loan debtors who are delinquent or in default on their loans.

Privacy Act of 1974; Notice of a Computer Matching Program

AGENCY: Office of the Chief Information Officer, HUD.

ACTION: Notice of a computer matching program between the Department of 
Housing and Urban Development and the Department of Education.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as 
amended by the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988 
(Pub. L. 100-503), and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
Guidelines on the Conduct of Matching Programs (54 FR 25818 (June 19, 
1989); and OMB Bulletin 89-22, ``Instructions on Reporting Computer 
Matching Programs to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), 
Congress and the Public,'' HUD is issuing a public notice of its intent 
to conduct a recurring computer matching program with the Department of 
Education to utilize a computer information system of HUD, the Credit 
Alert Interactive Voice Response System (CAIVRS), with the Department 
of Education's debtor files. This match will allow prescreening of 
applicants for loans issued by or guaranteed by the federal government 
to ascertain if the applicant is delinquent in paying a debt owed to or 
insured by the federal government for HUD or the Department of 
Education for direct or guaranteed loans.
    Before granting a loan, the lending agency and/or the authorized 
lending institution will be able to interrogate the CAIVRS debtor file 
which contains

[[Page 37424]]

delinquent debt information from the Departments of Agriculture, 
Education, Veteran Affairs, the Small Business Administration and 
judgment lien data from the Department of Justice, and verify that the 
applicant is not in default on a Federal judgment or delinquent on 
direct or guaranteed loans of participating Federal agencies. This 
match will allow prescreening of applicants for loans issued by or 
guaranteed by the federal government to ascertain if the applicant is 
delinquent in paying a debt owed to or insured by the federal 
government.
    Authorized users do a prescreening of CAIVRS to determine a loan 
applicant's credit status with the federal government. As a result of 
the information produced by this match, the authorized users may not 
deny, terminate, or make a final decision on any loan assistance to an 
applicant or take other adverse action against such applicant, until an 
officer or employee of such agency has independently verified such 
information.

DATES: Effective Date: Computer matching is expected to begin July 29, 
2005, unless comments are received which will result in a contrary 
determination, or 40 days from the date a computer matching agreement 
is signed, whichever is later.
    Comments Due Date: July 29, 2005.

ADDRESSES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments regarding 
this notice to the Rules Docket Clerk, Office of General Counsel, Room

    Reporting: In accordance with Pub. L. 100-503, the Computer 
Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988, as amended, and OMB 
Bulletin 89-22, ``Instructions on Reporting Computer Matching Programs 
to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Congress and the 
Public,'' copies of this notice and report are being provided to the 
Committee on Government Reform of the House of Representatives, the 
Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs of the Senate, 
and OMB.

    Authority: HUD has authority to collect and review mortgage data 
pursuant to the National Housing Act, as amended, 12 U.S.C. 1701 et 
seq., and related laws. The Department of Education oversees and 
manages federal student aid programs pursuant to the Higher 
Education Act of 1965, as amended, 20 U.S.C. 1001 et seq. This 
computer matching will be conducted pursuant to Pub. L. 100-503, 
``The Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988,'' as 
amended, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circulars A-129 
(Managing Federal Credit Programs) and A-70 (Policies and Guidelines 
for Federal Credit Programs). One of the purposes of all Executive 
departments and agencies is to implement efficient management 
practices for Federal Credit Programs. OMB Circulars A-129 and A-70 
were issued under the authority of the Budget and Accounting Act of 
1921, as amended; the Budget and Accounting Act of 1950, as amended; 
the Debt Collection Act of 1982 (Pub. L. 97-365), as amended by the 
Debt Collection Improvement Act of 1996 (Pub. L. 104-134, section 
31001); and the Deficit Reduction Act of 1984, as amended.
    Objectives To Be Met By the Matching Program: The matching program 
will allow the Department of Education access to a system that permits 
prescreening of applicants for loans issued by or guaranteed by the 
federal government to ascertain if the applicant is delinquent in 
paying a debt owed to or insured by the government. In addition, HUD 
will be provided access to the Department of Education's debtor data 
for prescreening purposes.
    Records To Be Matched: HUD will utilize its system of records 
entitled HUD/DEPT-2, Accounting Records. The debtor files for HUD 
programs involved are included in this system of records. HUD's debtor 
files contain information on borrowers and co-borrowers who are 
currently in default (at least 90 days delinquent on their loans); or 
who have any outstanding claims paid during the last three years on 
insured or guaranteed home mortgage loans under Title II of the 
National Housing Act; or individuals who have had a claim paid in the 
last three years on a loan under Title I of the National Housing Act. 
For the CAIVRS match, HUD/DEPT-2, System of Records, receives its 
program inputs from HUD/DEPT-28, Property Improvement and Manufactured 
(Mobile) Home Loans--Default; HUD/DEPT-32, Delinquent/Default/Assigned 
Temporary Mortgage Assistance Payments (TMAP) Program; and HUD/CPD-1, 
Rehabilitation Loans--Delinquent/Default.
    The Department of Education will provide HUD with debtor files 
contained in its system of records (Higher Education Act, Title IV 
Program File, 18-40-0024). HUD is maintaining the Department of 
Education's records only as a ministerial action on behalf of the 
Department of Education, not as part of HUD's HUD/DEPT-2 system of 
records. The Department of Education's data contain information on 
individuals who have defaulted on their guaranteed loans. The 
Department of Education will retain ownership and responsibility for 
their system of records that they place with HUD. HUD serves only as a 
record location and routine use recipient for the Department of 
Education's data.
    Notice Procedures: HUD and the Department of Education have 
separate notification procedures. When the federal credit being sought 
is a HUD/FHA mortgage, HUD will notify individuals at the time of 
application (ensuring that routine use appears on the application 
form). The Department of Education will notify individuals at the time 
of application for federal student loan programs that their records 
will be matched to determine whether they are delinquent or in default
