PURPOSE(S) OF THE SYSTEM:
    The information in the system is being collected to enable the 
Bureau to carry out its responsibilities with respect to non-depository 
covered persons and service providers, including the coordination and 
conduct of examinations, supervisory evaluations and analyses, 
enforcement actions, actions in Federal court, and coordination with 
other financial regulatory agencies. The information collected in this 
system will also support the conduct of investigations or be used as 
evidence by the Bureau or other supervisory or law enforcement 
agencies. This may result in criminal referrals, referral to the 
Federal Reserve Office of Inspector General, or the initiation of 
administrative or Federal court actions. This system will track and 
store examination and inspection documents created during the 
performance of the Bureau's statutory duties. This system also will 
enable the Bureau to monitor and coordinate regular examinations and 
required reports, supervisory evaluations and analyses, and enforcement 
actions internally and with other Federal and state regulators. The 
information will also be used for administrative purposes to ensure 
quality control, performance, and improving management processes.

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:
    Individuals covered by this system are: (1) Individuals who 
themselves are current and former directors, officers, employees, 
agents, shareholders, and independent contractors of non-depository 
covered persons subject to the supervision of the Bureau; (2) Current 
and former consumers who are or have been in the past serviced by non-
depository covered persons subject to the supervision of the Bureau; 
and (3) Bureau employees assigned to supervise non-depository covered 
persons. Information collected regarding consumer products and services 
is subject to the Privacy Act only to the extent that it concerns 
individuals; information pertaining to corporations and other 
organizations is not subject to the Privacy Act.

assess a covered person's compliance with various statutory and

regarding compliance with consumer financial law; documents assessing 
the current and past safety and soundness/risk management of a covered 
person or service provider; reports of consumer complaints; and

and actions taken to remedy deficiencies in these areas. Information 
contained in the Non-depository Supervision Database is collected from

individuals who own, control, or work for covered persons or service 
providers; (2) existing databases maintained by other Federal and State 
regulatory associations, law enforcement agencies, and related

to the Bureau's authority, and current, former, and prospective 
consumers who are or have been customers or prospective customers of
