Implementation of the Program Fraud Civil Remedies Act of 1986
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is adopting an interim final rule to implement the Program Fraud Civil Remedies Act of 1986 (31 U.S.C. 3801 et seq.) (PFCRA), by establishing administrative procedures for imposing civil penalties and assessments against persons who make false, fictitious, or fraudulent claims or written statements to FHFA in the context of its contracting or employment activities, where the amount of money or the value of property or services involved or requested from FHFA is $150,000 or less. FHFA previously issued a notice of proposed rulemaking to implement PFCRA. This rule is issued as an interim final rule rather than as a final rule because it increases the maximum penalty amount set forth in the proposed rule as required by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015 (Adjustment Improvements Act), and that Act also requires that such ``catch up'' adjustments be published in the form of an interim final rule. If, prior to the effective date of the interim final rule, FHFA does not receive any comments from which FHFA concludes that the rule should be revised, this rule will become final without further action by FHFA.
Rules of Practice and Procedure; Civil Money Penalty Inflation Adjustment
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) is issuing this interim final rule amending its Rules of Practice and Procedure and other agency regulations to adjust each civil money penalty within its jurisdiction to account for inflation, pursuant to the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 1990, as amended by the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015. If, prior to the effective date of the interim final rule, FHFA does not receive any comments from which FHFA concludes that the rule should be revised, this rule will become final without further action by FHFA.
