SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, FDIC is 
establishing a new system of records, FDIC-039, E-Rulemaking System of 
Records. FDIC collects comments on rulemakings and other regulatory 
actions, which it publishes on its website to provide transparency in 
the informal rulemaking process under the Administrative Procedure Act 
(APA), 5 U.S.C. 553, and in the regulatory processes established by the 
Federal Deposit Insurance Act, 12 U.S.C. 1811. FDIC also may solicit 
comments or other input from the public that may not be associated with 
statutory or regulatory notice and comment requirements.
    The E-Rulemaking system collects and stores comments and input 
received by the Corporation. Specifically, the system includes an 
option on https://www.fdic.gov/resources/regulations/federal-register-publications/ that allows individuals to electronically submit their 
comments or input to FDIC. The system collects the email address of the 
commenter, along with any additional information that the commenter 
elects to include in their submission, such as their name, 
organization, and contact information. Once submitted, the system 
stores this information in the E-Rulemaking database. Any comments 
received by fax, postal mail, or email are uploaded by authorized FDIC 
personnel into this database, collecting all comments into one central 
repository. The commenter's email address, name, organization, work 
contact information, and comment are published to https://www.fdic.gov/resources/regulations/federal-register-publications/. The commenter's 
personal contact information, or other additional personal information 
voluntarily submitted, is generally not published online. The FDIC may 
review, redact, or refrain from posting all or any portion of any 
comment that it may deem to be inappropriate for publication, such as 
irrelevant or obscene material. During a proposed

[[Page 54215]]

rulemaking or other statutory or regulatory notice and comment process, 
FDIC personnel may manually remove a comment from publication if the 
commenter withdraws the comment before the comment period has closed. 
However, comments that are removed from publication will be retained by 
the FDIC for consideration as required by the APA, or as part of the 
FDIC's documentation of a requested comment withdrawal.

II. The Privacy Act

    Under the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, a ``system of 
records'' is defined as any group of records under the control of a 
Federal government agency from which information about individuals is

system of records.
    Each government agency is required to publish a notice in the 
Federal Register in which the agency identifies and describes each 
system of records it maintains, the reasons why the agency uses the 
information therein, the routine uses for which the agency will 
disclose such information outside the agency, and how individuals may 
exercise their rights under the Privacy Act.
    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), FDIC has provided a report of 
this system of records to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and
