Privacy Act of 1974: Systems of Records
In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552a (Privacy Act), the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) is issuing public notice of its intent to establish a new Privacy Act system of records. The new system is titled Telecommunications System. The records in this system will be used to verify OFHEO's telecommunications usage and to resolve billing discrepancies. The records may also be used to identify unofficial telecommunications use. The purpose and effect of this system is to facilitate management of telecommunications devices; to analyze use detail information for verifying telecommunication device usage; to determine responsibility for use of telecommunications including placement of specific local and long distance calls; to prevent and detect the misuse of telecommunication resources; and to serve as the basis for appropriate disciplinary action in the event those resources have been misused.
