In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)/Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) proposes to establish a new DHS system of records titled ``DHS/FEMA-014 Hazard Mitigation Planning and Flood Mapping Products and Services Records System of Records.'' This system of records notice replaces the current DHS system of records titled, ``Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA), DHS/FEMA/NFIP/LOMA-1'' system of records, 71 FR 7990 (Feb. 15, 2006). This new system of records notice describes FEMA's collection and maintenance of records on individuals who are involved in the creation and updating of flood maps, individuals requesting information on or purchasing flood map products or services, and individuals involved with hazard mitigation planning. This newly established system will be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems.
