This security system limits data access to Department and contract staff on a ‘‘need-to-know’’ basis and controls individual users’ ability to access and alter records within the system. All users of this system of records are given unique user identification. The Department’s FSA Information Security and Privacy Policy require the enforcement of a complex password policy. In addition to the enforcement of the complex password policy, users are required to change their password at least every 90 days in accordance with the Department’s information technology standards. RECORD ACCESS PROCEDURES: If you wish to gain access to a record in this system, contact the system manager at the address listed above. You must provide necessary particulars of your name, DOB, SSN, and any other identifying information requested by the Department while processing the request to distinguish between individuals with the same name. Requests by an individual for access to a record must meet the requirements in 34 CFR 5b.5. CONTESTING RECORD PROCEDURES: If you wish to contest the content of your personal record within the system of records, contact the system manager at the address listed above and provide your name, DOB, and SSN. Identify the specific items to be changed, and provide a written justification for the change. Requests to amend a record must meet the requirements in 34 CFR 5b.7. khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES NOTIFICATION PROCEDURES: If you wish to determine whether a record exists regarding you in the system of records, contact the system manager at the address listed above.

HISTORY: The most recent notice modifying the COD system of records was published in VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:10 Aug 15, 2019 Jkt 247001 the Federal Register on September 27, 2010 (75 FR 59242–59246). The Department renamed the system of records entitled ‘‘Recipient Financial Management System’’ (RFMS) as the ‘‘Common Origination and Disbursement (COD) System’’ on September 27, 2010. The Department previously published the RFMS system of records notice on June 4, 1999 (64 FR 30106, 30161–30162). Appendix to 18–11–02 The following is a detailed description of the data added to the COD system of records as a result of the exchanges of data within FSA: The COD System receives applicant data from the Department’s CPS system each time an application is processed or corrected. This process assesses student aid eligibility, updates financial aid history, and ensures compliance with title IV, HEA regulations. Some of these data appear on the applicant’s Student Aid Report and the Institutional Student Information Record. Federal Perkins Loan data and FSEOG overpayment data are sent from postsecondary institutions or their third-party servicers. The Department’s COD System obtains school demographic information from the PEPS system. The COD System receives booking acknowledgements, discharge information, and payments to servicer data from Federal Loan Servicers. The COD System receives payment information from the CSB system on title IV, HEA grant overpayments that are being serviced by FSA’s Default Division. This payment information assesses student aid eligibility, updates financial aid history, and ensures compliance with title IV, HEA regulations. The FMS system provides funding information at the institution level, refunds of cash, and reallocation information.
