E5–3854 Filed 7–19–05; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4210–72–P DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT [Docket No. FR–4922–N–10] Privacy Act of 1974; Establishment of a New System of Records Office of the Chief Information Officer, HUD. ACTION: Notification of the establishment of a new system of records. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Pursuant to the provision of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552a), the Department of Housing and Urban Development HUD developed the Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) system, which, heretofore, was known as the Upfront Income Verification (UIV) system used by the Office of Public and Indian Housing (PIH). This system of records currently supports the administration of programs for families receiving housing assistance from HUD by Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) that administer HUD’s public housing and Section 8 tenantbased rental assistance programs. EIV contains income data of Public Housing and Section 8 program participants. EIV also enables PHAs to verify participantreported income and identifies households that may have under reported their household’s annual income. Eventually, EIV will be made available to administrators (owners and management agents) of the Office of Housing’s (Housing) rental assistance programs. HUD developed the UIV system to reduce subsidy payment errors as a result of tenant under reporting of income to ensure that limited federal resources serve as many eligible families as possible. EIV will facilitate more timely and accurate verification of tenant-reported income at the time of mandatory annual and interim reexamination of household income. EIV contains personal identifying information from HUD’s Public and Indian Housing Information Center VerDate jul<14>2003 14:24 Jul 19, 2005 Jkt 205001 (PIC), such as Head of Households and household members name, date of birth and Social Security Number, unit address, PHA program information, and household income details as reported by the participant to the program administrator. These personal identifying data are extracted from PIC and imported into EIV. The system also contains household member(s) income details as reported by state and federal agencies. HUD obtains income details through computer matching programs. System Security Measures: The integrity and availability of data in EIV is important. Much of the data needs to be protected from unanticipated or unintentional modification. HUD restricts the use of this information to HUD approved officials and PHAs; thus, the data is protected accordingly. Eventually, this restriction will be extended to owners and management agents. Vulnerabilities and corresponding security measures include: (1) Only persons with PIC User Ids and passwords may access EIV; (2) Access to EIV is controlled using EIV’s security module. This module controls a user’s access to particular modules based on the user’s role and security access level; (3) User IDs are utilized to identify access to sensitive data by users; (4) Data corruption/destruction—PHA users do not have write access to databases. HUD user’s write access is limited to user administration by authorized personnel. This will eliminate the risk of data destruction or corruption. Data Quality: PHAs enter management, building, unit, and family information into PIC. Family information includes the families’ names, social security numbers (SSNs), and dates of birth. When a PHA submits family data to PIC, the EIV system will validate each household member’s identity. If a household member’s identity cannot be verified, EIV will (1) flag the household member record; (2) provide an error message to the PHA, informing the PHA to verify the household member’s SSN, name, and/or date of birth; and (3) request the PHA to submit a corrected record (HUD Form 50058) into PIC. EIV will remove the unverified household member record from computer matching request files. This household member identity verification feature was established to help HUD maintain data quality and integrity and to support one of its strategic objectives to prevent fraud and abuse. This identity verification feature will (1) help confirm that those families entitled to benefits receive benefits, (2) assist in limiting the duplication of benefits, and (3) help prevent the false PO 00000 Frm 00102 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 application for benefits, thereby ensuring data quality. In addition, EIV will receive income data from State Wage Information Collection Agencies (SWICAs), federal agencies, and one or more private vendors. This will allow PHAs and, eventually, owners and management agents to verify the income of newly admitted applicants and tenants at the time of mandatory annual and/or interim reexaminations. DATES: Effective Date: This proposal shall become effective without further notice in 30 calendar days (August 19, 2005) unless comments are received during or before this period which would result in a contrary determination. Comments Due Date: August 19, 2005. ADDRESSES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments regarding this notice to the Rules Docket Clerk, Office of General Counsel, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 Seventh Street, SW., Room 10276, Washington, DC 20410–0500. Communications should refer to the above docket number and title. Facsimile (FAX) comments are not acceptable. A copy of each communication submitted will be available for public inspection and copying between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays at the above address.

Regarding records maintained in Washington, DC, contact: Nicole Faison, Rental Housing Integrity Improvement Project (RHIIP) Manager in the Office of Public and Indian Housing and EIV Program Office Project Manager, telephone number (202) 708– 0744.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended, notice is given that HUD proposes to establish a new system of records identified as the Enterprise Income Verification (EIV) system. Title 5 U.S.C 552a(e)(4) and (11) provide that the public be afforded a 30day period in which to comment on the new record system. The new system report was submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs and the House Committee on Government Reform pursuant to paragraph 4c of Appendix l to OMB Circular No. A–130, ‘‘Federal Responsibilities for Maintaining E:\FR\FM\20JYN1.SGM 20JYN1
