POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORING, RETRIEVING, ACCESSING RETAINING, AND DISPOSING OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:

The document is microfilmed, and can be retrieved by a Document Locator Number recorded in the computer record. The original document is destroyed.

When computer matches between Selective Service and other files produce lists of possible non-registrants, the computer file will be produced and maintained. As the list is processed the paper file will be produced from the microfilm records, containing correspondence between possible non-registrants and Selective Service. A computerized tracking file of cases will be maintained.

RETRIEVABILITY:

RETENTION AND DISPOSAL:

Upon receipt of unsolicited information regarding an alleged violation of the Military Selective Service Act, SSS will check the registrant file for the individual's name. If the individual has registered, the incoming correspondence will be destroyed and no record will be made or retained by SSS. If the individual is not listed in the registrant file, the individual will be entered into the automated tracking system, and the incoming correspondence will be used to attempt to correspond with the alleged violator, giving him an opportunity to register. After a reasonable attempt is made to register the individual, and he neither registers nor provides documented evidence supporting exemption, the communication may be sent to the Department of Justice. SSS will not retain copies of the incoming correspondence or any record identifying the source of the unsolicited information regarding an alleged violation. When the computer matches identify persons as possible non-registrants, processing may result in the production of a paper file of correspondence and/or other information. SSS will not retain paper copies of this information when cases are referred to the Department of Justice, but will retain microfilm copies. Once the Department of Justice has disposed of the case, as it deems appropriate, the Department of Justice will notify SSS, and the individual's name and related data will be deleted from the tracking system list of possible non-registrants.
