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).
