Introduction This notice informs the public of FHFA’s proposal to establish and maintain a new system of records. The proposed new system is being established under FHFA’s authority at 12 U.S.C. 4517(h) to hire for mission critical occupation jobs such as examiners, accountants, economists, and specialists in financial markets and in technology. This notice satisfies the Privacy Act requirement that an agency publish a system of records notice in the Federal Register when there is an addition to the agency’s systems of records. It has been recognized by Congress that application of all requirements of the Privacy Act to certain categories of records may have an undesirable and often unacceptable effect upon agencies in the conduct of necessary public business. Consequently, Congress established general exemptions and specific exemptions that could be used to exempt records from provisions of the Privacy Act. Congress also required that exempting records from provisions of the Privacy Act would require the head of an agency to publish a determination PO 00000 Frm 00031 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52903 to exempt a record from the Privacy Act as a rule in accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act. The Director of FHFA has determined that records and information in this new system of records is not exempt from requirements of the Privacy Act. As required by the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), and pursuant to section 7 of OMB Circular No. A–108, ‘‘Federal Agency Responsibilities for Review, Reporting, and Publication under the Privacy Act,’’ dated December 23, 2016 (81 FR 94424 (Dec. 23, 2016)), prior to publication of this notice, FHFA submitted a report describing the new system of records covered by this notice to the Office of Management and Budget, the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform of the House of Representatives, and the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs of the Senate. The proposed new system of records described above is set forth in its entirety below. SYSTEM NAME AND NUMBER: Applicant Tracking System, FHFA– 25.

The System will be used to receive, store, and process resumes, applications, curriculum vitaes, and similar documents received in response to mission critical occupation job openings, and recruiting and outreach events.

Privacy Act to certain categories of records may have an undesirable 
and often unacceptable effect upon agencies in the conduct of necessary 
public business. Consequently, Congress established general exemptions 
and specific exemptions that could be used to exempt records from 
provisions of the Privacy Act. Congress also required that exempting 
records from provisions of the Privacy Act would require the head of an 
agency to publish a determination to exempt a record from the Privacy 
Act as a rule in accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act. The 
Director of FHFA has determined that records and information in this 
new system of records is not exempt from requirements of the Privacy 
Act.
    As required by the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), and pursuant to 
section 7 of OMB Circular No. A-108, ``Federal Agency Responsibilities 
for Review, Reporting, and Publication under the Privacy Act,'' dated 
December 23, 2016 (81 FR 94424 (Dec. 23, 2016)), prior to publication 
of this notice, FHFA submitted a report describing the new system of 
records covered by this notice to the Office of Management and Budget, 
the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform of the House of 
Representatives, and the Committee on Homeland Security and 
Governmental Affairs of the Senate.
    The proposed new system of records described above is set forth in 
its entirety below.
