Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (U.S.C. 552a(e)(4)), as amended, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Circular No. A-130, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Office of Assets Sales provides notice that it wishes to alter the ``Delinquent/Default/ Assigned/Temporary Mortgage Assistance Payments Program'' system of records publication. Subsequent modifications include a system name change to ``Federal Housing Administration Loan Sale File'', the removal and addition of new data disclosure requirements, and refinement to the categories of: ``Individuals Covered by the System'' and ``Records Maintained by the System''. Consequent changes meet the threshold requirements for filing a report with OMB and Congress. All revisions are conducted to reflect the present status of the information contained in this system. This notice supersedes and terminates the ``Delinquent/Default/Assigned/Temporary Mortgage Assistance Payments Program'' system of records. The record system will continue to be utilized in the marketing of housing assets, to identify qualified potential purchasers, and to solicit bids for assets. This system supports HUD's FHA Single Family Asset Sales liquidation functions. As such, potential investors will be granted preview rights to sample mortgage records pursuant to an executed agreement. A more detailed description of the purpose of the system is contained in the purpose section of this notice.

The interest rate for debentures issued under section 221(g)(4) of the Act during the 6-month period beginning July 1, 2013, is 1\3/4\ percent. The interest rate for debentures issued under any other provision of the Act is the rate in effect on the date that the commitment to insure the loan or mortgage was issued, or the date that the loan or mortgage was endorsed (or initially endorsed if there are two or more endorsements) for insurance, whichever rate is higher. The interest rate for debentures issued under these other provisions with respect to a loan or mortgage committed or endorsed during the 6-month period beginning July 1, 2013, is 2\7/8\ percent. However, as a result of an amendment to section 224 of the Act, if an insurance claim relating to a mortgage insured under sections 203 or 234 of the Act and endorsed for insurance after January 23, 2004, is paid in cash, the debenture interest rate for purposes of calculating a claim shall be the monthly average yield, for the month in which the default on the mortgage occurred, on United States Treasury Securities adjusted to a constant maturity of 10 years.
