CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM: Mortgagees (HUD 
approved MAP and Healthcare Lenders).
CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:
    Project Files/records in the system for every Multifamily and 
Healthcare project will contain the following information: Mortgagees 
name and Mortgagors, Employee identification Number/Tax Identification 
Number/Social Security Number, Project name, Project Sponsor's Name, 
Project Number, Account Number, and Unit Address. The project level 
data mentioned above is derived from the various HUD required forms. 
Note: Certain records contained in this system, which pertain to 
individuals, contain principally proprietary information concerning 
sole proprietorships. Some of the records in the system which pertain 
to individuals may reflect personal information; however, only the 
records reflecting personal information are subject to the Privacy Act.

AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM:
    Sec. 113 of the Budget and Accounting Act of 1950 31 U.S.C. 66a. 
(Pub. L. 81-784). National Housing Act

as amended (12 U.S.C. 1702 et seq.). HUD is authorized to collect the 
Social Security Number (SSN) by Section 165(a) of the Housing and 
Community Development Act of 1987, Public Law 100-242 and by 42 U.S.C. 
3543.

PURPOSE(S):
    The MFH ASAP system is an automated underwriting system that 
supports processing, tracking and underwriting activities for MFH and 
its Office of Healthcare Program (OHP) applications. The system will be 
designed to support underwriting of applications submitted to HUD by 
approved lenders for FHA insurance related to Multifamily Housing or 
Healthcare projects. It will help to increase the sharing of 
information throughout MFH and OHP making the process more efficient, 
accurate, and transparent, thereby improving the partner relationships 
with both internal and external parties. Currently, the applications 
process relies heavily on manual processing and only meets the needs of 
the pipeline data tracking at a minimum for MFH. The system is expected 
to provide an end-to-end solution from concept phase to final closing 
for MFH, and will align with the OHP process improvement for both the 
Office of Residential Care Facilities (ORCF) (Section 232 program) and 
the Office of Hospital Facilities (OHF) (Section 242 program) that 
provide access to quality healthcare and residential facilities.
    This MFH ASAP project initiative will provide an improved way of 
managing the pipeline data and electronic processing of the lender 
applications benefiting both MFH and OHP. This fully integrated 
solution allows electronic submission of applications using a web 
portal, enhancement to reporting capabilities, and document management 
solutions. Upon full implementation, this new system will replace in 
its entirety the MFH Development Application Processing system (DAP) 
and it supporting system of records notification.

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 5 U.S.C. 
552a(b) of the Privacy Act, other routine uses are as follows:
    (a) To the U.S. Treasury--for disbursements and adjustments.
    (b) To the Internal Revenue Service--for reporting payments for 
mortgage interest, for reporting of discharge indebtedness and real 
estate taxes.
    (c) To HUD Business Partners (Public Housing Authorities and 
Community Development Corporations serving as Performance-Based 
Contract Administrators (PBCAs))--to manage their portfolio.
    (d) To contractors, grantees, experts, consultants, and the agents 
of thereof, and others performing and/or working on a contract, 
service, grant, cooperative agreement with HUD, when necessary to 
accomplish an agency function related to its system of records, limited 
to only those data elements considered relevant to accomplishing an 
agency function. Individuals providing information under this routine 
use are subject to the same Privacy Act requirements and limitations on 
disclosure as are applicable to HUD officers and employees.
    (e) To contractors, experts, consultants with whom HUD has a 
contract, service agreement or other assignment of the Department, when 
necessary to utilize relevant data for purposes of testing new 
technology and systems designed to enhance program operations and 
performance with the understanding that data disclosure restrictions 
apply under the Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act.
    (f) To appropriate agencies, entities, and persons when: (a) HUD 
suspects or has confirmed that the security or confidentiality of 
information in a system of records has been compromised; (b) HUD 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 HUD 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 HUD's efforts to respond to the suspected or 
confirmed compromise and prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm for 
purposes of facilitating responses and remediation efforts in the event 
of a data breach.
    (g) To appropriate agencies, entities, and persons to the extent 
such disclosures are compatible with the purpose for which the records 
in this system are collected, as set forth by Appendix I--HUD's Library 
of Routine Uses published in the Federal Register on July 17, 2012 at 
77 FR 41996.

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORING, RETRIEVING, ACCESSING, RETAINING, 
AND DISPOSING OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:

cabinets when not in use. The printed/hard copies will later be shipped 
to Tulsa, OK, upon completing the final endorsement phase. Note: Upon 
full implementation of new MFH ASAP, paper copies will no longer exist 
and require storage. The existing paper copies will have be uploaded 
into the new system format for electronic storage.

number or the project status. Note: Upon full implementation of MFH 
ASAP, hard copy records will no longer exist and/or require retrieval

use of a user ID and password that require authentication before access 
is granted to MFH ASAP. All printed/hard copies that currently exist 
for projects will need to be created and stored in each HUD office in 
locked file cabinets when not in use, which access is limited to those 
personnel who service the records. Note: Upon full implementation of 
MFH ASAP, hard copies will no longer exist for the new system. Paper 
records that existed under the prior manual process will have been 
uploaded into the new system format for electronic safeguarding. 
Records that existing under the prior manual process will have be 
shipped to the designated storage and archive facility who will 
safeguard the records in accordance with Departmental safeguarding 
procedures and policies.

purged or deleted from the system when eligible to be destroyed using 
one of the methods described by the NIST SP 800-88 ``Guideline for 
media Sanitization'' (September 2006). Paper based records when 
eligible to be destroyed will be destroyed by shredding or burn.  Note: 
Upon full implementation of new MFH ASAP system, paper copy records
