Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), the Start Printed Page 6672Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), Department of Justice, proposes to modify the following system of records-previously published July 31, 2000 (65 FR 46738):
Deportable Alien Control System (DACS), JUSTICE/INS-012
INS proposes to add two new routine use disclosures, identified as routine use (K) and (L). The purpose of routine use (K) is to allow legal service providers to call an INS detention facility in advance of a visit to the site, to determine whether a certain individual is detained. The release of the information is discretionary and will only pertain to whether or not the individual concerned is currently detained at that facility. Routine use (L) allows contractors working on behalf of INS to have access to necessary information to assist in this program.
In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (11), the public is given a 30-day period in which to comment on the new routine use disclosures. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB), which has oversight responsibilities under the Act, requires a 40-day period in which to conclude its review of the system. Therefore, please submit any comments by February 21, 2001. The public, OMB, and the Congress are invited to send written comments to Mary Cahill, Management Analyst, Management and Planning Staff, Justice Management Division, Department of Justice, Washington, DC 20530 (Room 1400, National Place Building).
In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), the Department has provided a report to OMB and the Congress on the proposed modification.Start Signature
