SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

(1) FRTIB Is Proposing To Retire One System of Records

    Pursuant the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, and as part of its 
ongoing integration efforts, the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment 
Board is retiring one system of records notice: FRTIB-8, Board Member 
Files (last published at 77 FR 11534 (February 27, 2012)).
    FRTIB will continue to collect and maintain records about FRTIB's 
Board Members, however, each of these records will be maintained as 
part of an existing FRTIB or Government-wide SORN. Ethics opinions, 
conflicts of interest waivers, and other programmatic files concerning 
Board Members will be maintained as part of Public and Confidential 
Financial Disclosure Reports and other ethics program records and will 
rely upon the existing government-wide systems of records entitled OGE/
GOVT-1, Executive Branch Personnel Public Financial Disclosure Reports 
and Other Name-Retrieved Ethics Program Records (68 FR 24722, May 8, 
2003). The FRTIB will maintain Confidential Financial Disclosure 
Reports (OGE Form 450) for FRTIB's Board Members pursuant to OGE/GOVT-
2, Executive Branch Confidential Financial Disclosure Reports (68 FR 
24722, May 8, 2003). Eliminating this notice will have no adverse 
impact on individuals, but will promote the overall streamlining and 
management of FRTIB's Privacy Act record systems.

(2) FRTIB Is Proposing To Revise the Purpose of and Routine Uses to 
Three Systems of Records, and To Make Technical and Clarifying Changes 
to These Systems of Records

(a) FRTIB-7, Contractor and Consultant Records

    FRTIB is proposing to revise the purpose of and routine uses to 
FRTIB-7, Contractor and Consultant Records (last published at 77 FR 
11534 (February 27, 2012)). FRTIB is proposing to amend the purpose as 
follows: ``The purpose of this system of records is to collect and 
maintain records on FRTIB contractors and consultants.'' FRTIB is also 
proposing technical amendments to the purpose of the system to reflect 
the fact that the system of records deals with sensitive FRTIB 
information.
    FRTIB is proposing to add a routine use to this system of records 
to enable the Agency to disclose information to the United States 
Department of the Treasury to effect payments to consultants or to 
verify their eligibility to receive payment. FRTIB is also proposing to 
apply General Routine Uses G1 through G2; and G4 through G16 to FRTIB-
7, Contractor and Consultant Records (see Prefatory Statement of 
Routine Uses).
    FRTIB is proposing to correct and update the system name; system 
location; categories of individuals covered by the system; categories 
of records in the system; authority for maintenance of the system; 
purpose; routine uses; storage; retrievability; safeguards; retention 
and disposal; system manager and address; notification procedure; 
record access procedures; contesting records procedures; record source 
categories; and exemptions claimed for the system. FRTIB will no longer 
exempt FRTIB-7, Contractor and Consultant Records, under subsections 
(k)(2) and (k)(5) of the Privacy Act.

(b) FRTIB-12, Debt Collection Records

    FRTIB is proposing to revise the purpose of and routine uses to 
FRTIB-12, Debt Collection Records (last published at 77 FR 11534

cover the following types of individuals who could be indebted to the 
FRTIB: ``participants, beneficiaries, and alternate payees of the 
Thrift Savings Plan; current and former employees of the FRTIB; 
individuals who are consultants and vendors to FRTIB; and individuals 
who received payments to which they are not entitled.''
    FRTIB is also proposing to reorder the routine uses for FRTIB-12, 
Debt

[[Page 7107]]

Collection Records (this change is being made to all existing systems 
of records to the extent necessary to make all of FRTIB's notices 
uniform and to reflect the addition of FRTIB's general routine uses). 
FRTIB is proposing to add one system-specific routine use, to enable 
the Agency to disclose administrative wage garnishment information to 
the United States Department of the Treasury. Additionally, FRTIB is 
proposing to apply and sixteen general routine uses to apply to FRTIB-
12, including G1 through G16 (see Prefatory Statement of Routine Uses).
    FRTIB is proposing to correct and update the system name; system 
location; categories of individuals covered by the system; categories 
of records in the system; authority for maintenance of the system; 
purpose; routine uses; disclosure to consumer reporting agencies; 
storage; retrievability; safeguards; retention and disposal; system 
manager and address; notification procedure; record access procedures; 
contesting records procedures; and record source categories.

(c) FRTIB-13, Fraud and Forgery Records

    FRTIB is proposing to make technical and clarifying revisions to 
FRTIB-13, Fraud and Forgery Records (last published at 80 FR 43428 
(July 22, 2015)). The FRTIB is planning to clarify that the purpose of 
the system includes an act of fraud relating to the Thrift Savings 
Fund.
    FRTIB is also proposing to revise the system-specific routine use 
2, to enable the Agency to disclose information used to verify 
allegations that a third party has misappropriated the FRTIB's (or 
TSP's) name, brand, or logos, to the Federal Trade Commission; Consumer 
Financial Protection Bureau; or the Financial Industry Regulatory 
Authority. Additionally, FRTIB is proposing to make technical revisions 
to system-specific routine use 4, to clarify that this routine use also 
includes fraud or forgery committed against the Thrift Savings Fund. 
Finally, FRTIB is proposing to correct and update the categories of 
records in the system; purpose; and routine uses.

(3) FRTIB Is Proposing To Create Four new Systems of Records

(a) FRTIB-16--Congressional Correspondence Files

    FRTIB is proposing to establish a new system of records entitled,

records is necessary to allow FRTIB to collect and maintain records on 
prospective, current, and former employees with disabilities who 
request or receive a reasonable accommodation by FRTIB. The proposed 
system of records will also enable FRTIB to track and report the 
processing of requests for FRTIB-wide reasonable accommodations to 
comply with applicable laws and regulations. Finally, this system of 
records will enable FRTIB to preserve and maintain the confidentiality 
of medical information submitted by or on behalf of applicants or 
employees requesting a reasonable accommodation.
    Files maintained as part of FRTIB-18 include: The name and 
employment of employees needing an accommodation; requestor's name and

(d) FRTIB-19--Freedom of Information Act Records

    FRTIB is proposing to establish a new system of record entitled, 
``FRTIB-19, Freedom of Information Act Records.'' The proposed system 
of records will enable the FRTIB to support the processing of record 
access requests made pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 
whether FRTIB receives such requests directly from the requestor or via 
referral from another agency. Additionally, this system will

[[Page 7108]]

be used to support litigation arising from such requests and appeals, 
and to assist FRTIB in carrying out any other responsibilities under 
the FOIA.
    Files maintained as part of FRTIB-19 include: Records received, 
created, or compiled in processing FOIA requests or appeals, including
