DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY

Office of Thrift Supervision


Privacy Act of 1974, as Amended

AGENCY: Office of Thrift Supervision, Treasury.

ACTION: Notice of proposed alterations to six Privacy Act systems of 
records.

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

SUMMARY: In accordance with the requirements of the Privacy Act of 
1974, as amended, the Department of the Treasury, Office of Thrift 
Supervision (OTS), gives notice of proposed alternations to six Privacy 
Act systems of records, as follows: OTS .002--Correspondence/
Correspondence Tracking; OTS .003--Consumer Complaints; OTS .006--
Employee Locator File; OTS .008--Employee Training Database; OTS .011--
Positions/Budget; OTS .012--Payroll/Personnel Systems & Payroll 
Records.

DATES: Comments must be received no later than May 18, 2007. The 
proposed altered systems will become effective May 29, 2007, unless the 
OTS receives comments which cause reconsideration of this action.

ADDRESSES: Comments should be sent to the Office of Chief Counsel, 
Office of Thrift Supervision, 1700 G Street, NW., Washington, DC 20552. 
To arrange to see the comments, see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT 
below.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dirk S. Roberts, Special Counsel, at 
(202) 906-7631 or by electronic mail, dirk.roberts@ots.treas.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The OTS currently maintains nine Privacy Act 
systems of records. Notices describing these systems of records were 
most recently published at 70 FR 41085, July 15, 2005. The OTS proposes 
to add two routine uses to each of the six systems identified above 
authorizing disclosures in connection with litigation, as follows.
    Information may be disclosed in civil, criminal, administrative or 
arbitration proceedings before a court, magistrate, administrative or 
arbitration tribunal in the course of pre-trial discovery, motions, 
trial, appellate review, or in settlement negotiations, when OTS, the 
Director of OTS, an OTS employee, the Department of Treasury, the 
Secretary of Treasury, or the United States is a party or has an 
interest in or is likely to be affected by such proceeding and an OTS 
attorney determines that the information is arguably relevant to that 
proceeding. To assure that the agency and its employees receive 
appropriate representation in legal proceedings, relevant information 
may be disclosed to the Department of Justice, private counsel, or an 
insurance carrier for the purpose of defending an action or seeking 
legal advice.
    In addition, OTS proposes to add two additional routine uses to one 
system identified above, OTS .012 Payroll/Personnel Systems & Payroll 
Records, authorizing disclosure relating to garnishment orders, as 
follows:

    Information may be disclosed to respond to government 
authorities in connection with garnishment proceedings. Information 
may be disclosed to private creditors for the purpose of garnishment 
of wages of an employee if the debt has been reduced to a judgment.
    The report of the altered systems of records, as required by 5 
U.S.C. 552a(r) of the Privacy Act, has been submitted to the 
Committee on Government Reform of the House of Representatives, the 
Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs of the 
Senate, and the Office of Management and Budget, pursuant to 
Appendix I to OMB Circular A-130, ``Federal Agency Responsibilities 
for Maintaining Records About Individuals,'' dated November 30, 
2000.
    The six proposed altered systems of records, described above, 
are published in their entirety below.
