Application File (18-11-01)

AGENCY: Department of Education.

ACTION: Correction.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We publish this notice to correct the Federal Student Aid 
Application File (18-11-01) by restoring a routine use for disclosures 
to third parties under computer matching programs that was 
inadvertently deleted when this notice was republished in the Federal 
Register. This restored routine use reflects that we disclose 
information that applicants provide in their applications for Federal 
student financial aid to other entities under approved computer 
matching programs for the purpose of verifying that application 
information.

DATES: The routine uses added by this notice are effective on April 11, 
2001.

Information Officer, U.S. Department of Education, 400 Maryland Avenue,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

General

    On June 4, 1999, we republished in the Federal Register (64 FR 
30105) virtually all of our systems of records, including this system 
of records. Due to technical errors, we amended this system of records 
in the Federal Register of December 27, 1999 (64 FR 72407) to correct 
the categories of records in the system. In the Federal Register of 
March 2, 2000 (65 FR 11294-95), we added routine uses numbers 10-15 to 
this system of records.
    We recently discovered that we had inadvertently deleted a routine 
use involving disclosures to third parties under computer matching 
programs (former routine use j) from the Federal Student Aid 
Application File (18-11-01) when we republished this notice in the June 
4, 1999 Federal Register. This notice restores that routine use.

Correction

    In the Notice of New, Amended, Altered and Deleted Systems of 
Records published in the Federal Register on June 4, 1999 (64 FR 
30105), make the following correction beginning on page 30160, in the 
first column, in the notice entitled ``Federal Student Aid Application 
File (18-11-01),'' under the heading ``Routine Uses of Records 
Maintained in the System, Including Categories of Users and Purposes of 
Such Users,'' add the following numbered paragraph (16)


    Note: Since the March 2, 2000 notice added routine uses numbers 
10-15, this routine use is added as number (16)


    (16) Disclosures to third parties through computer matching 
programs. Any information from this system of records, including 
personal information obtained from other agencies through computer 
matching programs, may be disclosed to any third party through a 
computer matching program in connection with an individual's 
application or participation in any grant or loan program administered 
by the U.S. Department of Education. Purposes of these disclosures may 
be to determine program eligibility and benefits, enforce the 
conditions and terms of the loan or grant, permit the servicing and 
collecting of the loan or grant, counsel the individual in repayment 
efforts, investigate possible fraud and verify compliance with program 
regulations, locate a delinquent or defaulted debtor, and initiate 
legal action against an individual involved in program fraud or abuse.
