SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In light of the recent theft of sensitive personal information from the various federal agencies and in response to the Office of Management and Budget’s memorandum (M–06–15 (May 22, 2006)) directing agencies to review privacy policies and processes, the Finance Board has undertaken a comprehensive review of agency practices related to the collection, use, and protection of personally identifiable information. As a result of that review, the Finance Board has enhanced the safeguards for sensitive information by adding two-factor authentication and data encryption to the agency’s network infrastructure and is beginning to implement government-wide personal identity verification management standards that will result in issuance of E:\FR\FM\17OCN1.SGM 17OCN1 61053 bajohnson on PROD1PC69 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 200 / Tuesday, October 17, 2006 / Notices new ID cards for all employees and contractors that may include full name, date of birth, image (photograph), fingerprints, organization affiliation (e.g., employee or contractor), organization/office of assignment, grade, e-mail address, United States citizenship status, and results of background investigation. The Finance Board also is updating both its Privacy Act system of records and Privacy Act implementing rule. Pursuant to the requirements of the Privacy Act, the Finance Board is publishing a notice of the amendments to its system of records. See 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (11). In July 2005, the Finance Board offices relocated and we are updating the office address in the system of records. We also are updating, as appropriate, certain document retention periods. With respect to records related to appointed Federal Home Loan Bank directors (system number FHFB–4), responsibility has shifted from the Office of the Chairman to the Office of Supervision. With respect to records of the Office of Inspector General (OIG), we are adding audit files to the system of records that already covers investigative files (system number FHFB–6). At the request of the OIG, we also are updating the OIG system of records to add several routine uses. The Finance Board is adding two new systems of records. The first is titled ‘‘FHFB–7 Federal Home Loan Bank Examination Work Papers.’’ It covers documents a Finance Board examiner uses to determine whether a Federal Home Loan Bank’s Affordable Housing Program (AHP) complies with applicable laws and regulations. These records may include the names, address, and income information of members of households who participate in a Bank’s AHP. These records may be retained as part of the examiner’s work papers to document exam conclusions and findings. The second new system of records is titled ‘‘FHFB–8 Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Management System.’’ In August 2004, the President issued Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD–12), which requires development and use of a common identification standard for federal employees and contractors. The Finance Board intends to begin implementing the HSPD–12 PIV requirements this month. In compliance with HSPD–12, the Finance Board PIV cards may include full name, date of birth, image (photograph), fingerprints, organization affiliation (e.g., employee or contractor), organization/office of assignment, grade, e-mail address, United States VerDate Aug<31>2005 04:06 Oct 18, 2006 Jkt 211001 citizenship status, results of background investigation, and information necessary to the request for a card, registration, verification, and issuance procedures, the index/database of active and invalid cards, and the information stored on the cards. The Finance Board may retain these records as part of the HSPD–12 credentialing process. For the reasons stated above, the Finance Board hereby amends its system of records originally published in the Federal Register in 1995, see 60 FR 46120 (September 5, 1995), as amended in 1997, see 62 FR 66865 (December 22, 1997), 1998, see 62 FR 66865 (December 22, 1997), and 2003, see 68 FR 39947 (July 3, 2003), as follows: 1.

FEDERAL HOUSING FINANCE BOARD

[No. 2006-N-08]


Privacy Act of 1974; System of Records

AGENCY: Federal Housing Finance Board.

ACTION: Notice with request for comments.

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

SUMMARY: As part of a comprehensive review of agency practices related 
to the collection, use, and protection of personally identifiable 
information, the Federal Housing Finance Board (Finance Board) is 
updating both its system of records and implementing rule under the 
Privacy Act of 1974 (Privacy Act). This notice concerns updates to the 
Finance Board's Privacy Act system of records. Elsewhere in this issue 
of the Federal Register, the Finance Board is publishing an interim 
final rule with request for comments that revises the agency's Privacy 
Act regulation to include new sections concerning security of systems 
of records, use and collection of social security numbers, and employee 
responsibilities under the Privacy Act.

DATES: This amendment will become effective as proposed without further 
notice on November 16, 2006 unless comments dictate otherwise. The 
Finance Board will accept comments in writing on or before November 16, 
2006.

including any personal information you provide, such as your name and 
address, on the Finance Board Web site at http://www.fhfb.gov/
Default.aspx?Page=93&Top=93.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Janice A. Kaye, Privacy Act Official 
and Senior Attorney-Advisor, Office of General Counsel, kayej@fhfb.gov 
or 202-408-2505, or David A. Lee, Chief Privacy Officer and Deputy 
Director, Office of Management, leed@fhfb.gov or 202-408-2514. You can 
send regular mail to the Federal Housing Finance Board, 1625 Eye 
Street, NW., Washington, DC 20006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In light of the recent theft of sensitive 
personal information from the various federal agencies and in response 
to the Office of Management and Budget's memorandum (M-06-15 (May 22, 
2006)) directing agencies to review privacy policies and processes, the 
Finance Board has undertaken a comprehensive review of agency practices 
related to the collection, use, and protection of personally 
identifiable information. As a result of that review, the Finance Board 
has enhanced the safeguards for sensitive information by adding two-
factor authentication and data encryption to the agency's network 
infrastructure and is beginning to implement government-wide personal 
identity verification management standards that will result in issuance 
of

[[Page 61053]]

new ID cards for all employees and contractors that may include full 
name, date of birth, image (photograph), fingerprints, organization 
affiliation (e.g., employee or contractor), organization/office of 
assignment, grade, e-mail address, United States citizenship status, 
and results of background investigation. The Finance Board also is 
updating both its Privacy Act system of records and Privacy Act 
implementing rule.
    Pursuant to the requirements of the Privacy Act, the Finance Board 
is publishing a notice of the amendments to its system of records. See 
5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (11). In July 2005, the Finance Board offices 
relocated and we are updating the office address in the system of 
records. We also are updating, as appropriate, certain document 
retention periods.
    With respect to records related to appointed Federal Home Loan Bank 
directors (system number FHFB-4), responsibility has shifted from the 
Office of the Chairman to the Office of Supervision.
    With respect to records of the Office of Inspector General (OIG), 
we are adding audit files to the system of records that already covers 
investigative files (system number FHFB-6). At the request of the OIG, 
we also are updating the OIG system of records to add several routine 
uses.
    The Finance Board is adding two new systems of records. The first 
is titled ``FHFB-7 Federal Home Loan Bank Examination Work Papers.'' It 
covers documents a Finance Board examiner uses to determine whether a 
Federal Home Loan Bank's Affordable Housing Program (AHP) complies with 
applicable laws and regulations. These records may include the names, 
address, and income information of members of households who 
participate in a Bank's AHP. These records may be retained as part of 
the examiner's work papers to document exam conclusions and findings.
    The second new system of records is titled ``FHFB-8 Personal 
Identity Verification (PIV) Management System.'' In August 2004, the 
President issued Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12), 
which requires development and use of a common identification standard 
for federal employees and contractors. The Finance Board intends to 
begin implementing the HSPD-12 PIV requirements this month. In 
compliance with HSPD-12, the Finance Board PIV cards may include full 
name, date of birth, image (photograph), fingerprints, organization 
affiliation (e.g., employee or contractor), organization/office of 
assignment, grade, e-mail address, United States citizenship status, 
results of background investigation, and information necessary to the 
request for a card, registration, verification, and issuance 
procedures, the index/database of active and invalid cards, and the 
information stored on the cards. The Finance Board may retain these 
records as part of the HSPD-12 credentialing process.
    For the reasons stated above, the Finance Board hereby amends its 
system of records originally published in the Federal Register in 1995, 
see 60 FR 46120 (September 5, 1995), as amended in 1997, see 62 FR 
66865 (December 22, 1997), 1998, see 62 FR 66865 (December 22, 1997),
