Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 2 / Tuesday, January 5, 2016 / Notices participating Federal agencies each month. The information includes: Borrower ID Number—The Social Security Number (SSN), Employer Identification Number (EIN) or Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) of the borrower on a delinquent or defaulted Federal direct loan or federally guaranteed loan. Federal agency personnel and authorized lenders must enter a user authorization code followed by either an SSN or EIN to access CAIVRS. Only the following information is returned or displayed: • Yes/No as to whether the holder of that SSN/EIN is in default on a Federal loan; and • If Yes, then CAIVRS provides to the lender: Æ Loan case number; Æ Record type (claim, default, foreclosure, or judgment); Æ Agency administering the loan program; Æ Phone number at the applicable Federal agency (to call to clear up the default); and Æ Confirmation code associated with the query. Federal law mandates the suspension of the processing of applications for Federal credit benefits (such as Government-insured loans) if the applicants are delinquent on Federal or federally guaranteed debt. Processing may continue only after the borrower satisfactorily resolves the debt (e.g., pays in full or renegotiates a new payment plan). To remove a CAIVRS sanction, the borrower must contact the Federal agency that reported their SSN or EIN to HUD/CAIVRS, using the information provided. generated for HUD Headquarters and field offices to review. CLAIMS provides automated receipt, tracking, and processing of form HUD– 27011, ‘‘Single Family Application for Insurance Benefits.’’ CLAIMS provides online update and inquiry capability to Single Family Insurance and Claims databases, and to cumulative history files. Claims payments are made by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), via a Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) platform (IBM mainframe/Treasury interface), on a daily basis. For the actual data match, SBA will use records from the system of records entitled Disaster Loan Case File (SBA 20) and the Loan System (SBA 21). asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Records To Be Matched Notice Procedures HUD and SBA have separate procedures for notifying individuals that their records will be matched to determine whether they are delinquent or in default on a Federal debt. HUD will notify individuals at the time of application for a HUD/FHA mortgage, and SBA will notify individuals at the time of application for SBA loan services. SBA may disclose information from the applications to other Federal agencies under a published ‘‘routine use,’’ without the applicants’ consent, as permitted by law. HUD and SBA published notices concerning routine use disclosures in the Federal Register to inform individuals that a computer match may be performed to determine a loan applicant’s credit status with the Federal Government. The Privacy Act also requires that a copy of each computer matching agreement entered into with a recipient agency shall be available, upon request, to the public. HUD will use records from the Single Family Default Monitoring System (SFDMS/F42D) (72 FR 65350, November 20, 2007, and Single Family Insurance System—Claims Subsystem, CLAIMS, A43C (79 FR 10825, February 26, 2014), as combined in CAIVRS to provide an up-to-date dataset to be used in records matching. SFDMS maintains data on mortgages that are 90 or more days delinquent. The mortgagee or servicer must submit a Monthly Delinquent Loan Report (form HUD–92068–A) to HUD on a monthly basis until the mortgage status has been completed by all mortgagees, or is otherwise terminated or deleted. Mortgagees and servicers provide default data to HUD via the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) or using the Internet via FHA Connection, through which the data is sorted, prescreened, key entered, edited, and otherwise processed. Reports are Categories of Records/Individuals Involved Data elements disclosed in computer matching governed by this Agreement are PII from the specified SBA system of record. The data elements supplied by SBA to CAIVRS are the following: • Borrower ID Number—The SSN, EIN, or TIN of the borrower on a delinquent or defaulted Federal direct loan or Federally guaranteed loan. • Case Number—A reference number issued by the reporting agency for the delinquent or defaulted Federal direct loan or federally guaranteed loan. • Agency Code—A code assigned to the reporting agency. • Type Code—A code that indicates the type of record claim, default, foreclosure, or judgment. • Borrower ID Type—A code that indicates whether the Borrower ID Number is a SSN, an EIN, or a TIN.

The matching program will be in effect and continue for 18 months, with an option to renew for 12 additional months, unless one of the Parties to the Agreement advises the other in writing to terminate or modify the Agreement.
