This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

The notice announced administrative changes to prior system notices, as well as a proposed revision of the system notice for the system of records, by amendment of the description of two existing routine uses, and the addition of a new routine use. This notice revises the description of the system of records as published in November to correct a technical error in the numbering of certain routine uses shown in that notice.
The revision made by this notice will be effective Febraury 9, 2000.Start Further Info

Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (11), the OSC published a notice appearing at 64 FR 63359 (November 19, 1999), relating to the system of records known as OSC/GOVT-1, OSC Complaint, Litigation and Political Activity Files. This system of records is maintained in connection with the agency's program responsibilities.
The notice announced administrative changes to prior system notices, to update information about individuals covered by the system, records in the system, authority for maintenance of the system, the system manager, retrievability of records, access controls, and records source categories; to update legal citations; and to make technical corrections. The notice also announced a proposed revision of the system notice for OSC/GOVT-1, by amendment of the description of two existing routine uses, and the addition of a new routine use.
The November 19th notice also advised that the revised and new routine uses would become effective 30 days after publication, unless comments received in writing by the OSC before then warranted further changes. Since the OSC received no comments on the proposed revised and new routine uses, they became effective on December 20, 1999.
Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4), this notice is to correct a technical error in the numbering of certain routine uses described in the November 19th notice. Specifically, the routine use identified as “h” inadvertently combined the text of two separate routine uses, which should have been denominated as routine uses “h” and “i.”
The description published at 64 FR 63359 (November 19, 1999) of the system of records known as OSC/GOVT-1 is hereby incorporated by reference, and is revised as incorporated to reflect the correct numbering and text of routine uses “h” and “i,” as follows:
“h. To disclose information to any source from which additional information is requested (to the extent necessary to identify the individual, inform the source of the purpose(s) of the request, and to identify the type of information requested), where necessary to obtain information relevant to an agency decision concerning the hiring or retention of an employee, the issuance of a security clearance, the conducting of a security or suitability investigation of an individual, the letting of a contract, or the issuance of a license, grant, or other benefit;
i. To disclose information to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) at any stage in the legislative coordination and clearance process in connection with private relief legislation, as set forth in OMB Circular No. A-19;”Start Signature
