[FR Doc. 2010–32788 Filed 12–28–10; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4210–67–P DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT [Docket No. FR–5386–N–12] Office of Inspector General; Privacy Act of 1974; Notification of the Office of Inspector General Intent To Consolidate, Update, Delete, and Implement Privacy Act Systems of Records Office of the Chief Information Office, HUD. ACTION: Notification of Consolidation, Update, Deletion, and Implementation of Privacy Act Systems of Records. AGENCY: Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), notice is hereby given that HUD’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) proposes to consolidate, update and delete Systems of Records (SORs) within its existing repository of SORs, and establish a new SORs to be maintained by the 13 Regional Special Agents in Charge nationwide and the Deputy Assistant Inspector General for Investigations in Washington, D.C. The OIG, pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, currently maintains six SORs: (1) Investigative Files of the Office of SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Inspector General (HUD/OIG–1); (2) Hotline Complaint Files of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/OIG–2); (3) Name Indices System of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/OIG–3); (4) Independent Auditor Monitoring Files of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/ OIG–4); (5) Auto Audit of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/OIG–5); and (6) Auto Investigation of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/OIG–6). The notice for these SORs was last published on May 22, 2000 (65 FR 33242). The OIG also proposes to create a seventh system of records, OIG Giglio Information File (HUD/OIG–7). Accordingly, the notice, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (11), of the establishment of a new system of records follows: HUD OIG is updating its Giglio Policy and is thereby creating a new system of records for which no public notice consistent with the provisions of 5 U.S.C. section 552(e)(4) and (11) has been published, OIG Giglio Information File, HUD/OIG–7. The file is being created to ensure that, upon the request of a Requesting Official within the Department of Justice, OIG Giglio Officials are able to provide the information necessary to allow the prosecuting attorneys to meet their constitutional obligations under the United States Supreme Court case of Giglio v. United States, 405 U.S. 150 (1972), and the case law following that decision. A new routine use was established for prior 6 SORs effective October 15, 2007, as noticed in the Federal Register on September 14, 2007 (72 FR 52572). The new routine use permits disclosure of records to respond to breach of personally identifiable information. This consolidation refers to that routine uses for all 7 OIG SORs. This consolidation and update amends routine use 3 for HUD/OIG–1, HUD/ OIG–2, HUD/OIG–3, HUD/OIG–4, HUD/ OIG–5, and HUD/OIG–6 to allow release of records to assist housing authorities who take personnel actions based on an OIG audit or investigation. An eleventh routine use is added to HUD/OIG–1, HUD/OIG–2, HUD/OIG–3, HUD/OIG/5, and HUD/OIG–6 to allow release of information to licensing authorities regulating professional services, when the records reveal conduct related to activities associated with a HUD program that is appropriate for possible administrative or disciplinary sanctions, such as license revocation. The OIG has also changed the name of HUD/OIG–6, Autoinvestigation of the Office of Inspector General to HUD/ OIG–6 Autoinvestigation and the Case Management Information SubSystem (CMISS), while maintaining the same E:\FR\FM\29DEN1.SGM 29DEN1 srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 249 / Wednesday, December 29, 2010 / Notices routine uses and attributes of HUD/ OIG–6. CMISS is an updated data system of the investigative case files, formerly maintained in Auto Investigation, which will continue to maintain its information and data. This consolidation also updates routine use 9 due to legislation (IG Reform Act of 2008) enacted in 2008 changing the name of the President’s Council on Integrity and Efficiency (PCIE) to the Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) and corrects the disposition schedule. The OIG also deletes two obsolete SORs from its inventory, the Investigation Files (HUD/DEPT 24) and Audit Planning and Operations systems (HUD/DEPT–77). This notice serves to update the OIG repository of SORs and reflects the current posture of each SOR. Additionally, this notice deletes and supersedes all prior notifications for the SORs referenced in this publication. DATES: Effective Date: This proposal shall become effective January 28, 2011, unless comments are received on or before that date which would result in a contrary determination. Comment Due Date: January 28, 2011.

PURPOSES: AI/CMISS provides HUD OIG Investigations with an automated system which manages cases under investigation from their inception to their closing through a centralized data repository of case information. AI/ CMISS and its environment is a secure environment where access to information is controlled through a formal process of checks and authorizations involving a hierarchical supervisory structure. Special Agents in Charge (SAC), Assistant Special Agents in Charge (ASAC), Supervisory Forensic Auditors (SFA), Forensic Auditors (FA), Special Agents (SA) and support staff, document all steps in their assigned activities. Additionally, due to judicial involvement in some of the cases, the files kept and maintained by HUD OIG may be made available to the courts under discovery. AI/CMISS provides data that is currently available through the intranet to the investigators and auditors. This provides a method for remote HUD OIG users and traveling employees to access the AI/CMISS systems from their laptops regardless of whether or not they are located within a HUD OIG office. Both Systems support the HUD OIG requirement to maintain a detailed audit trail of cases to closure. This requires a system, which will be capable of capturing and maintaining data integrity during the complete case cycle while ensuring data privacy and confidentiality. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES ROUTINE USES OF RECORDS MAINTAINED IN THE SYSTEM, INCLUDING CATEGORIES OF USERS AND THE PURPOSES OF SUCH USES: In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under subsection (b) of the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a(b), records may also be disclosed routinely to other users under the following circumstances: 1.

[Docket No. FR-5386-N-12]


Office of Inspector General; Privacy Act of 1974; Notification of 
the Office of Inspector General Intent To Consolidate, Update, Delete, 
and Implement Privacy Act Systems of Records

AGENCY: Office of the Chief Information Office, HUD.

ACTION: Notification of Consolidation, Update, Deletion, and 
Implementation of Privacy Act Systems of Records.

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

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), notice is 
hereby given that HUD's Office of Inspector General (OIG) proposes to 
consolidate, update and delete Systems of Records (SORs) within its 
existing repository of SORs, and establish a new SORs to be maintained 
by the 13 Regional Special Agents in Charge nationwide and the Deputy 
Assistant Inspector General for Investigations in Washington, D.C. The 
OIG, pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, currently maintains six SORs: 
(1) Investigative Files of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/OIG-1); 
(2) Hotline Complaint Files of the Office of Inspector General (HUD/
OIG-2); (3) Name Indices System of the Office of Inspector General 
(HUD/OIG-3); (4) Independent Auditor Monitoring Files of the Office of 
Inspector General (HUD/OIG-4); (5) Auto Audit of the Office of 
Inspector General (HUD/OIG-5); and (6) Auto Investigation of the Office 
of Inspector General (HUD/OIG-6). The notice for these SORs was last 
published on May 22, 2000 (65 FR 33242). The OIG also proposes to 
create a seventh system of records, OIG Giglio Information File (HUD/
OIG-7). Accordingly, the notice, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and 
(11), of the establishment of a new system of records follows: HUD OIG 
is updating its Giglio Policy and is thereby creating a new system of 
records for which no public notice consistent with the provisions of 5 
U.S.C. section 552(e)(4) and (11) has been published, OIG Giglio 
Information File, HUD/OIG-7. The file is being created to ensure that, 
upon the request of a Requesting Official within the Department of 
Justice, OIG Giglio Officials are able to provide the information 
necessary to allow the prosecuting attorneys to meet their 
constitutional obligations under the United States Supreme Court case 
of Giglio v. United States, 405 U.S. 150 (1972), and the case law 
following that decision. A new routine use was established for prior 6 
SORs effective October 15, 2007, as noticed in the Federal Register on 
September 14, 2007 (72 FR 52572). The new routine use permits 
disclosure of records to respond to breach of personally identifiable 
information. This consolidation refers to that routine uses for all 7 
OIG SORs. This consolidation and update amends routine use 3 for HUD/
OIG-1, HUD/OIG-2, HUD/OIG-3, HUD/OIG-4, HUD/OIG-5, and HUD/OIG-6 to 
allow release of records to assist housing authorities who take 
personnel actions based on an OIG audit or investigation.
    An eleventh routine use is added to HUD/OIG-1, HUD/OIG-2, HUD/OIG-
3, HUD/OIG/5, and HUD/OIG-6 to allow release of information to 
licensing authorities regulating professional services, when the 
records reveal conduct related to activities associated with a HUD 
program that is appropriate for possible administrative or disciplinary 
sanctions, such as license revocation.
    The OIG has also changed the name of HUD/OIG-6, Autoinvestigation 
of the Office of Inspector General to HUD/OIG-6 Autoinvestigation and 
the Case Management Information SubSystem (CMISS), while maintaining 
the same

[[Page 82043]]

routine uses and attributes of HUD/OIG-6. CMISS is an updated data 
system of the investigative case files, formerly maintained in Auto 
Investigation, which will continue to maintain its information and 
data. This consolidation also updates routine use 9 due to legislation 
(IG Reform Act of 2008) enacted in 2008 changing the name of the 
President's Council on Integrity and Efficiency (PCIE) to the Council 
of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) and corrects 
the disposition schedule.
    The OIG also deletes two obsolete SORs from its inventory, the 
Investigation Files (HUD/DEPT 24) and Audit Planning and Operations 
systems (HUD/DEPT-77). This notice serves to update the OIG repository 
of SORs and reflects the current posture of each SOR. Additionally, 
this notice deletes and supersedes all prior notifications for the SORs 
referenced in this publication.

DATES: Effective Date: This proposal shall become effective January 28, 
2011, unless comments are received on or before that date which would 
result in a contrary determination.
    Comment Due Date: January 28, 2011.

ADDRESSES: Interested persons are invited to submit comments regarding 
this notice to the Rules Docket Clerk, Office of General Counsel, Room 
10276, Department of Housing and Urban Development, 451 7th Street, 
SW., Washington, DC 20410-0500. Communications should refer to the 
above docket number and title. Comments submitted by facsimile (FAX) 
will not be accepted. A copy of each communication submitted will be 
available for public inspection and copying between 8 a.m. and 5:30 
p.m. weekdays at the above address.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title 5 U.S.C. section 552a(e)(4) and (11) 
provide that the public be given a 30-day period in which to comment on 
the proposed changes. In accordance with section 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) and 
the Office of Management and Budget Circular A-130, the Department has 
provided a report to OMB and the Congress of the proposed 
consolidation, update, deletion, and Implement of SORs. The report will 
be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and to the 
Chair of the Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, and the 
Chair of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs 
which requires a 40-day period in which to conclude its review of the

closing through a centralized data repository of case information. AI/
CMISS and its environment is a secure environment where access to 
information is controlled through a formal process of checks and 
authorizations involving a hierarchical supervisory structure. Special 
Agents in Charge (SAC), Assistant Special Agents in Charge (ASAC), 
Supervisory Forensic Auditors (SFA), Forensic Auditors (FA), Special 
Agents (SA) and support staff, document all steps in their assigned 
activities. Additionally, due to judicial involvement in some of the 
cases, the files kept and maintained by HUD OIG may be made available 
to the courts under discovery. AI/CMISS provides data that is currently 
available through the intranet to the investigators and auditors. This 
provides a method for remote HUD OIG users and traveling employees to 
access the AI/CMISS systems from their laptops regardless of whether or 
not they are located within a HUD OIG office. Both Systems support the 
HUD OIG requirement to maintain a detailed audit trail of cases to 
closure. This requires a system, which will be capable of capturing and 
maintaining data integrity during the complete case cycle while 
ensuring data privacy and confidentiality.

Routine uses of records maintained in the system, including categories 
of users and the purposes of such uses:
    In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 
subsection (b) of the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a(b), records 
may also be disclosed routinely to other users under the following 
circumstances:
    1. In the event that records indicate a violation or potential 
violation of law, whether criminal, civil or regulatory in nature, the 
relevant records may be disclosed to the appropriate Federal, State, or 
local agency charged with the responsibility for investigating or 
prosecuting such violation or enforcing or implementing such statute, 
rule, or regulation.
    2. Records may be disclosed to a congressional office in response 
to an inquiry from that congressional office made at the request of the 
individual who is the subject of the records.
    3. Records may be disclosed to HUD contractors, Public Housing 
Authorities or management agents of HUD-assisted housing projects, in 
order to assist such entities in taking or defending actions to recover 
money or property, or take personnel actions based on an OIG 
investigation or audit, where such recovery or personnel action serves 
to promote the integrity of the programs or operations of HUD.
    4. Records may be disclosed during the course of an administrative 
proceeding where HUD is a party to the litigation and the disclosure is 
relevant and reasonably necessary to adjudicate the matter.
    5. Records may be disclosed to any source, either private or 
governmental, to the extent necessary to elicit information relevant to 
an OIG investigation.
    6. Records may be disclosed to appropriate State boards of 
accountancy for possible administrative or disciplinary sanctions such 
as license revocation. These referrals will be made only after the 
independent auditor has been notified that the OIG is contemplating 
disclosure of its findings to an appropriate State board of 
accountancy, and the independent auditor has been provided it an 
opportunity to respond in writing to the OIG's findings.
    7. Records may be disclosed to DOJ for litigation purposes 
associated with the representation of OIG and/or HUD before the courts.
    8. Records may be disclosed to persons engaged in conducting and 
reviewing internal and external peer reviews of OIG to ensure adequate 
internal safeguards and management procedures exist within any office 
that had received law enforcement authorization.
    9. In the event that these records respond to an audit, 
investigation or review, which is conducted pursuant to an authorizing 
law, rule or regulation, and in particular those conducted at the 
request of the PCIE pursuant to Executive Order 12993, the records may 
be disclosed to the PCIE and other Federal agencies, as necessary.
    10. Additional Disclosure for Purposes of Facilitating Responses 
and Remediation Efforts in the Event of a Data Breach. A record from a 
system of records maintained by this Department may be disclosed to 
appropriate agencies, entities, and persons when:
    a. The Department suspects or has confirmed that the security or 
confidentiality of information in a system of records has been 
compromised;
    b. The Department has determined that as a result of the suspected 
or confirmed compromise there is a risk of harm to economic or property 
interests, identity theft or fraud, or harm to the security or 
integrity of systems or programs (whether maintained by the Department 
or another agency or entity) that rely upon the compromised 
information; and,
    c. The disclosure made to such agencies, entities, and persons is 
reasonably necessary to assist in connection with the Department's 
efforts to respond to the suspected or confirmed compromise and 
prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm.
    11. Records may be disclosed to private, State or Federal licensing 
authorities or boards regulating professional services, such as 
appraisers, attorneys, insurers, or mortgage brokers, when the records 
reveal conduct related to activities associated with a HUD program that 
is appropriate for possible administrative or disciplinary sanctions, 
such as license revocation.

that may be used to suggest that a witness is biased. The system may 
also contain any judicial rulings, related pleadings, correspondence, 
or memoranda pertaining to a relevant criminal case.

Authority for Maintenance of the System:
    The Inspector General Act of 1978 (5 U.S.C. App. 3) authorizes the 
Inspector General to conduct, supervise and coordinate audits and 
investigations relating to the programs and operations of HUD, and to 
receive and investigate complaints concerning possible violations of 
law, rules, or regulations, or mismanagement, gross waste of funds, 
abuse of authority, or a substantial or specific danger to the public 
health or safety. These activities can require OIG employees to testify 
in Federal criminal prosecution.

Purpose of the System:
    This system has been established to enable OIG Giglio Officials 
(Special Agents in Charge and Regional Inspectors General for Audit 
nationwide and the office of the Deputy Assistant Inspector General for
