SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

As a result of a compliance review, the Department found that the following eight Privacy Act systems of records notices should be revised by adding a “Purpose(s)” statement to conform the notices to the format required by the Office of the Federal Register.

Treasury/DO .005—Grievance Records;

Treasury/DO .010—Office of Domestic Finance, Actuarial Valuation System;

Treasury/DO .060—Correspondence Files and Records on Employee Complaints and/or Dissatisfaction;

Treasury/DO .149—Foreign Assets Control Legal Files;

Treasury/DO .156—Tax Court Judge Applicants;

Treasury/DO .183—Private Relief Tax Bill Files;

Treasury/DO .193—Employee Locator and Automated Directory System, and

Treasury/DO .200—FinCEN Data Base.

The list of the bureaus and other components of the Department published in 31 CFR 1.20 was revised on January 14, 2000 (65 FR 2333). Three Treasury-wide systems of records notices (DO .005, DO .210, DO .211) are being updated to make the “system location” consistent with the revision and to add the street addresses to the bureau locations.

The list of the system managers and addresses for Treasury/DO .005—Grievance Records is also being revised due to changes in addresses and reorganizations within the Department, and to reformat the list of the system managers by bureau.

In addition, the notice published on December 17, 1998, did not identify the correct system manager for Treasury/DO .060—Correspondence Files and Records on Employee Complaints and/or Dissatisfaction.

Treasury/DO .190—General Allegations and Investigative Records is amended to change the title to Start Printed Page 53086“Investigation Data Management System,” and to make changes in the system locations and a change in the address of the system manager. Two system locations, New York, NY and Glynco, GA, are being deleted, and four system locations, San Diego, CA; Miami, FL; Marlton, NJ; and Alexandria, VA, are being added.

A review of Treasury/DO .191—OIG Management Information System (MIS) found that the title did not accurately reflect the categories of records in the system and is being renamed: “Human Resources and Administrative Records System.” Appendix A, Addresses of OIG offices, is also amended to reflect current system locations. In addition, the title of the OIG system manager is being changed in the following two Treasury-wide system notices:

Treasury/DO .210—Treasury Integrated Financial Management and Revenue System, and

Treasury/DO .211—Telephone Call Detail Records.

The review found that the Department no longer maintains the records subject to Treasury/DO .068—Time-In-Grade Exception Files. Consequently, the system of records is being deleted effective August 31, 2000.

Because the described alterations are not considered significant, the reporting requirements of subsection (r) of the Privacy Act of 1974 do not apply. The proposed alterations to the Treasury systems of records are set forth below.
