SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    In October 2006, the Finance Board published an interim final rule 
with request for comments that revised its Privacy Act and FOIA 
regulations. See 71 FR 60810 (Oct. 17, 2006). The revised Privacy Act 
regulation (12 CFR part 913) includes new sections concerning security 
of systems of records, use and collection of social security numbers, 
and employee responsibilities under the Privacy Act. These amendments 
were modeled after the U.S. Department of Justice Privacy Act 
implementing rule, and are intended to enhance the agency's ability to 
protect personally identifiable information.
    The rule also amended the fee schedule in the FOIA regulation (12 
CFR 910.9), which the Finance Board uses to determine the amount of the 
fee it charges to duplicate records under both the FOIA and the Privacy 
Act, to take into account increased salary and operating costs. The 30-
day public comment period for the interim final rule closed on November 
16, 2006. See 70 FR at 60811.

II. Analysis of Public Comments and the Final Rule

    The Finance Board received no comments in response to the interim 
final rule. Thus, for the reasons set forth in detail in the interim 
final rulemaking, the Finance Board is adopting the interim final rule 
as a final rule without any changes.

III. Regulatory Flexibility Act

    The Finance Board adopted the amendments to parts 910 and 913 in 
the form of an interim final rule and not as a proposed rule. 
Therefore, the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act do not 
apply. See 5 U.S.C. 601(2), 603(a).

V. Paperwork Reduction Act

    The final rule does not contain any collections of information 
under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. See 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. 
Consequently, the Finance Board has not submitted any information to 
the Office of Management and Budget for review.
