SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department established the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP), pursuant to the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (Pub.

The system of records notice was last published in its entirety on April 20, 2010, at 75 FR 20699. The Department subsequently amended routine use (13) on July 2, 2010, at 75 FR 38608.

The purpose of this alteration to Routine Use (13) is to allow broader disclosure of information to the Department of Commerce (‘‘Commerce’’), which will provide technical analysis and support to the Department of the Treasury to assess the quality of services provided under HAMP and to report on the program’s overall execution. Additionally, the Department proposes adding a new Routine Use (16), to read as follows: ‘‘(16) Disclose information to an authorized recipient who has assured the Department or a Financial Agent of the Department in writing that the record will be used solely for research purposes designed to assess the quality of and efficient administration of HAMP, subject to the same or equivalent limitations applicable to the Department’s officers and employees under the Privacy Act.’’ The report of an altered system of records, as required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) of the Privacy Act, has been provided to the Committee on Oversight and 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.
