This notice proposes amendments to three Postal Service Privacy Act systems of records. System USPS 110.010, Property Management-Accountable Property Records, historically has covered and continues to cover information collected to issue badges granting access to Postal Service buildings and facilities, as well as to issue other accountable property records. Individuals that are issued badges include both employees and contractors. A recent review of the description of system USPS 110.010, prompted by the installation of a new access control system, found that contractors were not included in the description of individuals covered by the system. This notice expands that section of the system notice and enhances other sections to better describe the maintenance of the records covered.

System USPS 140.020, Postage-Postage Evidencing System Records, was amended in the Federal Register on January 3 (65 FR 142-143) to make it clear that the system covers both information collected through traditional paper-based postage meter licensing, as well as information collected through implementation of new technology postage evidencing systems. The categories of records covered by the system were expanded at that time to include the collection of destination delivery point (ZIP+4) information. It has been determined that only destinating five-digit ZIP Code information is needed to accomplish the system purpose; consequently, the description of the categories of records section is amended to reflect this limited collection.

Finally, the name and address of the system manager has been updated in system of records 170.010, Operational Data Collection System-Workload/Productivity Management Records, as a result of agency restructuring.

For the above reasons, the Postal Service proposes amending these systems as shown below:
