I. Background

This notice provides an accurate and complete text of notices for the sixty systems of records established under the Privacy Act by the DOE. The last compilation of the Department's systems of records was published at 47 FR 14306, April 2, 1982. Since that time, the DOE has published several notices to establish new systems of records and to amend published systems.

The Department's previous compilation included appendices that listed the DOE locations where the records are maintained and the routine uses applicable to the various systems. We have determined that the proposed system notices will be a more useful tool to the subject of the records if all information related to each of the particular systems is incorporated into the individual notices. Each system notice will provide a more accurate description of the systems of records, identify the purpose and authority for collecting and maintaining the information, reflect administrative changes that have been made, identify the appropriate DOE locations, and incorporate all routine uses. In addition, this Federal Register notice proposes new routine uses for existing systems of records and establishes seven new systems of records.

II. Proposed Amendments to Existing Systems of Records

DOE-1 Personnel and General Employment Records

This notice proposes to change the name of “DOE-1 Personnel and General Employment Records” to “DOE-1 Grievance Records.” The notice also will expand the categories of records maintained in the system and establish three new routine use provisions.

The system currently encompasses all personnel and general employment records for Federal employees at the DOE. With the exception of grievance records, the maintenance of general employment records in the system duplicates “OPM Gov't-1 Personnel Records,” the government-wide system of records of the Office of Personnel Management (OPM). Therefore, the Department will no longer maintain a system for these records.

The amended system will maintain only grievance records subject to the negotiated grievance process under DOE 3771.1, “Grievance Policy and Procedures.” The records in this system will be used by management officials in the resolution of employee concerns about working conditions, administration of collective bargaining agreements, employee-supervisor relations, work processes, or other similar issues.

The categories of records maintained in the system of records will include those records covered by the DOE and administrative grievance process and a negotiated grievance process, security clearance documents, management reports, witness statements, affidavits, checklists, and notes.

This notice also proposes to establish three new routine use disclosures for the system of records. The three proposed routine uses will allow disclosure of information maintained in the system (1) to union officials acting in their official capacity as a representative of the grievant or affected employees under 5 U.S.C. 7121; (2) to an appropriate Federal, State, or local agency that is authorized to review and resolve the issue(s) raised in the grievance; and (3) to another Federal agency, a court, or a party in litigation before a court or in an administrative proceeding being conducted by a Federal agency, when the Department is a party to the judicial or administrative proceeding. These routine uses are compatible with the purpose for which the information is being collected and maintained.

DOE-5 Personnel Records of Former Contractor Employees

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-5 Personnel Records of Former Contractor Employees” by establishing a new routine use disclosure pursuant to the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000. The proposed routine use will allow disclosure of information maintained in the system to the Department of Health and Human Services, its contractors, grantees, and cooperative agreement holders, to estimate radiation doses and other workplace exposures received by Department of Energy federal and contractor employees. The Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Secretary of Energy shall each make available information to researchers and the general public on the assumptions, methodology, and data used in establishing radiation doses consistent with the protection of private medical records. Those provided information under this routine use are subject to the same limitations applicable to DOE officers and employees under the Privacy Act.

DOE-8 Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA) Contracts

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-8 Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA) Start Printed Page 27301Contracts” by expanding an existing routine use provision and modifying how the records are stored. Presently, records are maintained in paper medium. The storage of the records has been modified to include records maintained in an on-line database. Automation of the documents will improve the management of paper records. Access to records in the system is limited to those whose duties require access to the records and is completely password protected. Hard copies of the same records are stored in locked metal or office file cabinets.

This notice proposes to expand an existing routine use disclosure. Presently, information may be disclosed to State and local governments and institutions of higher education for the purpose of assigning individuals for temporary periods. The proposed routine use provision will be expanded to include disclosure of information to federally funded research and development centers. The proposed expanded routine use disclosure is compatible with the system's purpose to maintain information used to provide payments under the terms of the personnel agreements, and to provide employment histories and information for reports and program evaluations to a Federal agency in connection with the hiring or retention of an employee.

DOE-18 Accounts Payable Financial System

This notice proposes to amend the categories of individuals section to include contractor employees of the Agency who are due monies from the Department.

DOE-23 Property Accountability System

This notice proposes to amend the categories of individuals and the categories of records sections, and to add a new routine use disclosure. The categories of individuals will be expanded to include contractor employees of the Agency who are authorized to be custodians of controlled DOE equipment. The categories of records maintained in the system will be expanded to include information about the equipment such as date of purchase; cost price; purchase order number; property tag identification; status/date; condition of property; operation number; high risk field; and disposal code.

The proposed new routine use disclosure will allow the disclosure of information to a Federal agency, in response to its request, in connection with the hiring or retention of an employee, the issuance of security clearance, the reporting of an investigation of an employee, the letting of a contract, or the issuance of a license, grant, or other benefit by the requesting agency. A routine use disclosure will be made to the extent that the information is relevant and necessary to the requesting agency's decision on the matter.

The proposed new routine use disclosure is compatible with the system's purpose to provide inventories to satisfy other Federal Procurement Management Regulations (FPMR) requirements; to maintain records of the location of emergency equipment; to control equipment; to document assignments authorized under union contracts; to provide management information necessary for the budgeting and allocation of equipment; and to provide evidence of assignment, location, and value in the event that Government property is stolen.

DOE-24 Land Record System

This notice proposes to amend the system by establishing two new routine use provisions. The new routine uses will permit the disclosure of information to the Internal Revenue Service to provide notification of individuals who have received payment exceeding $600.00 on any one land right transaction, and disclosure to the Department of Justice to provide support of land right condemnation actions. These disclosures are compatible with the system's purpose to maintain and track land rights information resulting from property rights acquisitions, outgrants, licenses, transfers, exchanges, encroachments, disposals, and construction and maintenance programs.

DOE-25 Employee Parking Records

This notice proposes to change the name of “DOE-25 Employee Parking Records” to “DOE-25 U.S. Department of Energy Commuter Locator and Parking Space Information System.” This notice also proposes to amend the system of records by establishing a new routine use provision.

The proposed new routine use provision will permit the disclosure of information to the Council of Governments who will provide information about car pools and van pools to commuters seeking to make commuter connections. This disclosure is compatible with the system's purpose to maintain information of existing car pools, van pools, and other categories of parking for a current record of employees who commute to work.

DOE-26 Official Travel Records

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-26 Official Travel Records” by expanding the categories of individuals and categories of records sections, and to add a new routine use disclosure. The categories of individuals will be expanded to include individuals who relocate at the Department's expense. The categories of records maintained in the system also will be expanded to include charge card account numbers, residential sales records, and receipts.

The proposed routine use disclosure will allow transmittal of information maintained in the system of records to the General Services Administration for the audit of transportation services. The proposed new routine use disclosure is compatible with the system's purpose to document official domestic and foreign travel, relocation expenditures, foreign travel approval and reimbursement of allowable expenses.

DOE-33 Personnel Medical Records

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-33 Personnel Medical Records” by establishing a new routine use disclosure pursuant to the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000. The proposed routine use will allow disclosure of information maintained in the system to the Department of Health and Human Services, its contractors, grantees, and cooperative agreement holders, to estimate radiation doses and other workplace exposures received by Department of Energy federal and contractor employees. The Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Secretary of Energy shall each make available information to researchers and the general public on the assumptions, methodology, and data used in establishing radiation doses consistent with the protection of private medical records. This routine use is compatible with the purpose for which the information is being collected and maintained. Those provided information under this routine use are subject to the same limitations applicable to DOE officers and employees under the Privacy Act.

DOE-34 Employee Assistance Program (EAP)

The DOE published for public comment in the Federal Register an amendment to an existing system of records on May 13, 1996. The amendment expanded the system's scope to include records on assistance on all behavioral problems or issues. The existing system covers only those records relating to counseling and Start Printed Page 27302referral services to resolve alcohol and/or drug counseling and records relating to referral services to resolve alcohol and/or drug abuse problems.

Records from this system will be used to provide information to the employee assistance program provider, program coordinator, and program evaluators to assist in the operation of the program. The information also will be provided to appropriate Departmental management officials regarding possible health, safety, or security risks.

The number of system locations was increased to include the offices of the Departmental service providers (counselors) when their offices are off-site. The categories of individuals covered also was amended to include former employees. The categories of records in the system now includes a detailed employee profile, interest inventory and/or psychological test results, issue inventory, case notes, consent/release forms, and psychological reports.

The new routine uses permit the disclosure of information maintained in the system of records to (1) the Department's contractors and their personnel who provide services to the Program who have a need for the records in the performance of their duties; (2) appropriate officials of law enforcement agencies, government and social service agency officials, and court officials if the employee is suspected of child, spousal, or elder abuse; (3) any person or entity to the extent necessary to prevent an imminent or potential crime that directly threatens loss of life or serious bodily injury; (4) qualified personnel for the purpose of conducting scientific research, management audits, financial audits, or program evaluation, but such personnel may not identify, directly or indirectly, any individual patient in any report, or otherwise disclose patient identities in any manner; and (5) the Department of Justice or other appropriate Federal agencies in defending claims against the United States, when the claim results from action against an individual based upon the individual's behavior or mental or physical condition, or is alleged to have arisen because of activities of any Federal agency in connection with the individual. These routine uses do not apply to records maintained in the system of records that pertain to alcohol and substance abuse that are subject to the more restrictive confidentiality constraints set forth at Title 42, United States Code, section 290 dd-2, and Title 42, Code of Federal Regulations, part 2.

The proposed notice published in 1996 also deleted the routine uses listed for the system in the Department's complete compilation of Privacy Act systems of records at 47 FR 14306, and subsequent Federal Register republications. All intended disclosures of information maintained in the system are included in the proposed routine uses to be established in this notice.

Response to Comment Received—One comment was received in response to the amendments to the system in 1996. The comment addressed the disclosure of records to the employee's supervisor when the employee waives confidentiality. The commenter opposed allowing an employee's supervisor access to EAP records under any circumstances. The commenter states that when a waiver of confidentiality has occurred, it is acceptable for an EAP provider to discuss information with a supervisor, but not to release records. DOE agrees with this comment and is revising the Purpose section of the system to address this comment. Accordingly, the Purpose section is revised to read as follows:

These records are used by the Department of Energy to maintain documentation on employees seeking assistance on behavioral problems or issues. Records from this system will be used to provide information to the employee assistance program provider, program coordinator, and program evaluators to assist the operation of the program. In cases of employee supervisor initiated referrals, information will be discussed with the employee's supervisor if the employee waives confidentiality, but documents will not be provided. The information also will be provided to appropriate Departmental management officials regarding possible health, safety, or security risks.

DOE-35 Personnel Radiation Exposure Records

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-35 Personnel Radiation Exposure Records” by establishing a new routine use disclosure pursuant to the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000. The proposed routine use will allow disclosure of information maintained in the system to the Department of Health and Human Services, its contractors, grantees, and cooperative agreement holders, to estimate radiation doses and other workplace exposures received by Department of Energy federal and contractor employees. The Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Secretary of Energy shall each make available information to researchers and the general public on the assumptions, methodology, and data used in establishing radiation doses consistent with the protection of private medical records. This disclosure is compatible with the purpose for which the information is being collected and maintained. Those provided information under this routine use are subject to the same limitations applicable to DOE officers and employees under the Privacy Act.

DOE-41 Legal Files (Claims, Litigation, Criminal Violations, Patents, and Others)

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-41 Claims, Litigation, Criminal Violations, Patents, and Others” by modifying how the records are stored. Records now are maintained in paper medium. The storage section will be modified to include electronic generated records. Maintenance of electronic records improves the management of paper records by using current technology to reduce redundant processes, multiple copying, and misfiling of correspondence. Access to the records will be on a need to know basis. All records containing personal information will be maintained in secured file cabinets or in files accessible only by authorized personnel. Access doors will be locked when offices are vacant and access to computerized files is password protected.

DOE-43 Personnel Security Clearance Files

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-43 Personnel Security Clearance Files” by establishing a new routine use provision. The proposed new routine use will permit disclosure of information to competent medical authorities who, under a formal agreement for payment of services with the local DOE personnel security elements, conduct evaluations under 10 CFR part 710. These evaluations are conducted to determine whether an individual has an illness or mental condition of a nature that causes or may cause a significant defect in judgment or reliability, or is alcohol dependent or suffering from alcoholism.

DOE-46 Clearance Board Cases

This notice proposes to change the name of the system from “DOE-46 Clearance Board Cases” to “DOE-46 Administrative Review Files.” The proposed name reflects the administrative review proceedings that determine a DOE access authorization eligibility of an individual. The categories of individuals section has been revised to provide greater specificity about the individuals covered by the system. In addition, this notice more clearly identifies the records that are currently maintained in Start Printed Page 27303connection with the process established at 10 CFR part 710.

DOE-48 Security Education and/or Infraction Reports

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-48 Security Education and/or Infraction Reports” by modifying how the records are stored. Records now are maintained in paper medium. The storage section is being amended to include electronic records. Maintenance of electronic records and a database improves the management of paper records by using current technology and allows better tracking of security infractions issued and security training taken by individuals. Access is limited to employees with a need-to-know. Records are stored in secured areas.

DOE-49 Security Correspondence File

The last compilation of DOE's Privacy Act system of records was published on April 2, 1982. This publication included the system of records notice for DOE-49 Security Correspondence File. On November 27, 1998, this system of records was inappropriately deleted from DOE's inventory. For this reason, the DOE is republishing “DOE-49 Security Correspondence File.” This notice proposes to change the name to “DOE-49 Security Communications File” and to amend how the records are stored.

The records are being compiled by DOE as part of it's efforts to adequately carry out its physical security responsibilities by creating and maintaining profiles of all individuals who have made threats of any kind, and through any medium, against DOE officials, DOE employees, DOE contractor employees, DOE facilities and/or DOE buildings. Information maintained in the system will consist of threat correspondence received from individuals, as well as individuals who have been identified from articles in the new media as being potential threats to the Department, its employees, and facilities. The records will consist of information obtained from the subject individual, complainants, witnesses, agency files and records, official federal, state or local records and publicly available information. The records will be stored as paper records, microfiche, and electronic media.

The system is being establish under the authority vested in the Secretary contained in 42 U.S.C. 7101 et seq., and 52 U.S.C. 2401 et seq. The system also will satisfy the requirements of E.O. 12958, “Classified National Security Information” (April 17, 1995).

The system will be exempt from subsections (k)(1), (k)(2), and (k)(5) of the Privacy Act, to the extent that information within the System meets the criteria of those subsections of the Act. Such information has been exempted from the provisions of subsections (c)(3), (d), and (e)(1) of the Act; see the Department's Privacy Act regulation at 10 CFR 1008.12(b). The DOE Privacy Act regulation has been amended to allow these exemptions.

DOE-50 Personnel Assurance Program Records

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-50 Personnel Assurance Program Records” by modifying how the records are stored. Presently, records are maintained in paper medium. The storage section is being amended to include computer database files. Maintenance of electronic records improves the management of paper records by using current technology to provide greater access to the records. Access is limited to those employees with a need-to-know. All records are stored in locked file cabinets in secured buildings.

DOE-51 Employee Visitor and Access Control Records

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-51 Employee Visitor and Access Control Records” by expanding the categories of individuals section, expanding an existing routine use provision, and modifying how the records are stored. The section for categories of individuals also will include DOE contractor employees seeking access to DOE facilities and classified records.

This notice also proposes to expand an existing routine use disclosure. Presently, records may be disclosed to the Department of Defense to authorize access to classified information and areas. This proposed routine use will be amended to include disclosure of information to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The proposed routine use disclosure is compatible with the system's purpose to control access to Departmental facilities to those with proper identification.

This notice also proposes to amend the system by modifying how the records are stored. Presently, records are maintained in paper medium. The storage section is being amended to include an automated database. The database may contain the clearance history of an individual, access identification information, and photographs. Maintenance of electronic records improves the management of paper records by using current technology to provide greater access to the records. Access is limited to employees with a need-to-know. Records are stored in a secure area.

DOE-52 Alien Visits and Participation

This notice proposes to amend the system and change the name from “DOE-52 Alien Visits and Participation” to “DOE-52 Access Control Records of International Visits, Assignments, and Employment at DOE Facilities and Contractor Sites.” The categories of individuals and the categories of records sections are more detailed. They are amended to more clearly identify the individuals and records covered by the system. In addition, the locations where the records are maintained have been expanded to include all DOE facilities and contractor facilities.

The storage section is being amended to include files on electronic media. Maintenance of electronic records improves the management of paper records by using current technology. In addition, it provides greater access to the records and improves the tracking of security infractions and security training. Access is limited to employees with a need-to-know.

DOE-55 Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act (FOIA/PA) Requests for Records

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-55 Freedom of Information and Privacy Act (FOIA/PA) Requests for Records” by expanding the section of categories of records, establishing two new routine use provisions, and modifying how the records are stored.

The categories of records section is being amended to include the identity of the FOIA/PA Division analyst assigned to process requests and case notes for requests.

The new routine uses permit disclosures of information maintained in the system to another Federal agency to consult on or refer requests for processing, and to a Federal agency, court of law, or party in litigation or administrative proceeding challenging or seeking to enjoin actions by the Department under the FOIA or PA. This new routine use is compatible with the system's purpose to determine the actions taken on FOIA and PA requests to produce statistical reports and for case management.

This notice also will amend how records are stored and retrieved. Records now are stored in paper and microfiche media. Records will be stored in an optical imaging system database, where records are scanned and stored in an electronic media. Records include video, audio, and electronic media files. Maintaining Start Printed Page 27304information electronically will improve the management of the records and is in compliance with the Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments to the FOIA. Information will be retrieved by name and case number. Computerized files are password protected, and paper records are stored in locked metal file cabinets. Access to the records will be limited to a need-to-know basis.

DOE-56 Congressional Constituent Inquiries

The notice proposes to amend “DOE-56 Congressional Constituent Inquiries” by establishing two new routine use disclosures. This notice will allow records to be disclosed to another Federal agency when consultation or referral is required to process the request. In addition, records from this system may be disclosed to members of Congress on behalf of their constituents, and to the Department's contractors in performance of their contracts and their officers and employees who have a need for the record to perform their duties. These parties will be subject to the same limitations applicable to the Department's officers and employees under the Privacy Act. The new routine uses are compatible with the system's purpose to track inquiries by members of Congress on behalf of constituents, to ensure proper document control of the response, and to record the Department's responses to such inquiries.

This notice also will amend how the records are stored. Records now will include electronic records. Maintaining information electronically will improve the management of executive correspondence in the Department using current technology to reduce redundant processes, multiple copying, and misfiling of correspondence. Access to the records is limited to a need-to-know basis. The records are password protected.

DOE-57 Congressional Profiles

Records from this system will be used by DOE personnel, particularly those in the Office of Congressional Affairs, who need to be informed about energy issues of interest to members of Congress and to have available minimal biographical information on each member and the member's district or State. Maintaining the information will enable DOE to be better informed and more responsive in its interactions with Congress. For this reason, DOE will collect and maintain publicly available information derived from information releases by members' offices, abstracts from the Congressional Record, committee hearings, and other published or public sources. This information will be maintained by the name of each individual member of the current Congress.

The storage of these records was previously reported as paper records and computer printouts. This notice will amend and modify this section of the systems notice to include storage of the records on electronic format.

DOE-58 General Correspondence Files of the Office of the Secretary of Energy

Records in this system consist of correspondence written to the Secretary, Deputy Secretary, and Under Secretary of Energy. The system of records has been amended to expand the categories of individuals who are covered by the system to include all individuals who communicate by letter with the Secretary, Deputy Secretary, and Under Secretary. This section will include members of Congress, representatives of organizations, other Federal and state agencies, and the general public.

At present, the records maintained in the system are only paper records. This notice proposes to amend the storage section of the system to include databases and electronic images. The records will be stored in an optical imaging system database, where records are scanned and stored in an electronic medium. Maintaining information electronically will improve the management of executive correspondence in the Department using current technology to reduce redundant processes, multiple copying, and misfiling of correspondence. The records are password protected. Access to the records is limited to a need-to-know basis.

DOE-62 Historical Files—Published Information Concerning Selected Persons in the Energy Field

The History Division in the Office of the Executive Secretariat of the DOE is responsible for assembling significant materials about the history of the Federal role in energy development in the United States. In furtherance of this function, published information from newspaper and magazine articles, press releases, announcements, and speeches is collected and maintained about individuals who are prominently involved in historic events of interest to the energy community. These materials are used to prepare official histories and to respond to specific requests for historical information.

The previously published notice described one routine use disclosure to members of the public and media. This notice will amend the system by adding three proposed new routine use disclosures. The proposed new routine use disclosures will permit disclosure of information (1) to another Federal agency when consultation or referral is required to process requests; (2) to a congressional office submitting a request or inquiring about a request on behalf of a constituent who is the subject matter of the record; and (3) to DOE contractors to perform their duties in accordance with the same limitations applicable to the DOE officers and employees under the Privacy Act. These proposed routine uses are compatible with the purpose of preparing histories to respond to informational inquiries from members of the public and from DOE officials.

DOE-71 The Radiation Accident Registry

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-71 Radiation Accident Registry” by establishing a new routine use disclosure pursuant to the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000. The proposed routine use will allow disclosure of information maintained in the system to the Department of Health and Human Services, its contractors, grantees, and cooperative agreement holders, to estimate radiation doses and other workplace exposures received by Department of Energy and contractor employees. The Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Secretary of Energy shall each make available information to researchers and the general public on the assumptions, methodology, and data used in establishing radiation doses consistent with the protection of private medical records. This disclosure is compatible with the purpose for which the information is being collected and maintained.

DOE-72 The DOE Radiation Study Registry

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-72 The DOE Radiation Study Registry” by establishing a new routine use disclosure pursuant to the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000. The proposed routine use will allow disclosure of information maintained in the system to the Department of Health and Human Services, its contractors, grantees, and cooperative agreement holders, to estimate radiation doses and other workplace exposures received by Department of Energy Federal and contractor employees. The Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Secretary of Energy shall each make available information to researchers and the general public on the assumptions, Start Printed Page 27305methodology, and data used in establishing radiation doses consistent with the protection of private medical records. This disclosure is compatible with the purpose for which the information is being collected and maintained.

DOE-73 The US-DPTA Registry

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-73 The US-DPTA Registry” by establishing a new routine use disclosure. The proposed routine use will allow disclosure of information maintained in the system to the Department of Health and Human Services, its contractors, grantees, and cooperative agreement holders, pursuant to the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000, to estimate radiation doses and other workplace exposures received by Department of Energy Federal and contractor employees. The Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Secretary of Energy shall each make available to researchers and the general public information on the assumptions, methodology, and data used in establishing radiation doses consistent with the protection of private medical records. This disclosure is compatible with the purpose for which the information is being collected and maintained.

DOE-84 Counterintelligence Investigations

The DOE, as the successor agency to the Atomic Energy Commission, has broad responsibilities under the Atomic Energy Act (AEA) to direct the development, use, and control of atomic energy. These responsibilities include a specific mandate to protect sensitive and classified information and materials involved in the design, production, and maintenance of nuclear weapons, and a general obligation to ensure that permitting an individual to have access to information classified under the AEA will not endanger the nation's common defense and security. As an element of carrying out its national security mission, the DOE has instituted a more rigorous counterintelligence program to strengthen its protection of information and technologies in connection with DOE's atomic energy defense activities. This stronger counterintelligence program has emphasized selection and training of field counterintelligence personnel; counterintelligence analysis; counterintelligence and security awareness; protections against potential insider threats; computer security; improved coordination with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and the National Security Agency (NSA); and the establishment of a counterintelligence evaluation program to include a counterintelligence-scope polygraph examination.

At 64 FR 70962 on December 17, 1999, the DOE published a final rule for the use of counterintelligence-scope polygraph examinations for certain DOE Federal and contractor employees, applicants for employment, and other individuals assigned or detailed to Federal positions at DOE. See 10 CFR part 709. The DOE now requires counterintelligence-scope polygraph examinations for individuals in positions with access to the most sensitive and classified information and materials in connection with DOE's atomic energy defense activities as a necessary, prudent measure to fulfill DOE's national security responsibilities.

An additional part of DOE's enhanced counterintelligence program is the establishment of a pilot program to monitor and analyze selected outgoing and incoming electronic mail (e-mail) from the DOE Sandia National Laboratories, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, which are engaged in nuclear weapons design or work involving special nuclear material. The purpose of the pilot project at the national laboratories is to test whether e-mail monitoring is an effective device to address threats to DOE assets by foreign governments, groups, organizations or persons that attempt to gather classified and other protected information through e-mail communications with DOE Federal and contractor personnel.

In accordance with the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a, DOE proposes to amend “DOE-84, Counterintelligence Investigative Records” by expanding the categories of records section and categories of individuals section. The amendment will expand the categories of records section to include hard copy as well as electronic versions of investigative reports, evaluations records, polygraph examination records and videotapes of polygraph sessions, and compact disks of e-mail.

In addition, as a result of the implementation of the DOE counterintelligence evaluation program to include the counterintelligence-scope polygraph examination, the categories of individuals section covered by the system also will be expanded to include employees and applicants for employment with DOE and its contractors (including subcontractors at all tiers), and individuals who may be assigned or detailed to Federal positions at DOE. There are eight program categories covered by the polygraph examination regulation. These include positions that DOE has determined include counterintelligence activities or access to counterintelligence sources and methods; positions requiring access to Sensitive Compartmented Information; positions requiring access to non-intelligence Special Access Programs; positions subject to the Personnel Assurance Program (PAP) or Personnel Security Assurance Program (PSAP); positions with a need-to-know or access to information specifically designated by the Secretary regarding the design and operation of nuclear weapons and associated use and control features; positions within the Office of Independent Oversight and Performance Assurance, or any successor thereto, involved in inspection and assessment of safeguards and security functions, including cyber-security, of the Department; and positions within the Office of Security and Emergency Operations, or any successor thereto. The categories of individuals also will include those individuals who voluntarily request a polygraph examination in order to respond to questions that have arisen in the context of a counterintelligence investigation. These last examinations are referred to as exculpatory polygraph examinations. The categories of individuals also will be expanded as a result of the e-mail analysis pilot project to include users of the e-mail systems at the Sandia National Laboratories, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

Hard copy and electronic versions of investigative records and counterintelligence evaluation records, except polygraph records and videotape and e-mail records, contained in this system of records may be maintained at DOE Headquarters or other DOE sites listed below. The polygraph records and videotapes will be maintained only at the DOE Test Center, Albuquerque, NM, 87106, and at DOE, Headquarters, 1000 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20585. The records will be stored as paper records, electronic records, and videotapes. The polygraph records are safeguarded in locked cabinets and electronic records are password protected. Access is limited to authorized staff only.

DOE-88 Epidemiologic and Other Health Studies, Surveys and Surveillances

This notice proposes to amend “DOE-88 Epidemiologic and Other Health Studies, Surveys and Surveillances” by establishing a new routine use disclosure pursuant to the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000. The proposed routine use will allow disclosure of information maintained in the system to the Department of Health and Human Services, its contractors, grantees, and cooperative agreement holders to estimate radiation doses and other workplace exposures received by Department of Energy Federal and contractor employees. The Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Secretary of Energy shall each make available information to researchers and the general public on the assumptions, methodology, and data used in establishing radiation doses consistent with the protection of private medical records. This disclosure is compatible with the purpose for which the information is being collected and maintained.

III. Discussion of New Systems of Records

DOE-3 Employee Concerns Program Records

The Department of Energy (DOE) proposes to establish a new system of records entitled “DOE-3 Employee Concerns Program Records.” The DOE recognizes that free and open expression pertaining to the concerns of DOE Federal and contractor and subcontractor employees is essential to accomplishing DOE's mission. The employees have the right and responsibility to report concerns relating to the environment, safety, health, or management of Department operations. The Employee Concerns Program is designed to encourage open communication; inform employees of the proper forum for consideration of their concerns; ensure employees can raise issues without fearing reprisal; address employee concerns in a timely and objective manner; and provide employees an avenue for consideration of concerns that fall outside existing systems.

The categories of records maintained in the system will include concerns or complaints brought to the attention of the appropriate Employee Concerns Program office. This can include the receipt of complaints filed under 10 CFR part 708, Department of Energy Contractor Employee Protection Program, informal complaints; names; social security numbers; work and home address and telephone numbers; job titles; job series; grade or pay levels; organization; supervisor names and telephone numbers; copies of employee records such as personnel actions; performance appraisals; pay and leave records and security clearance documents; management reports; witness statements; affidavits; checklists; and notes. The records maintained in this system will be used by the Department Employee Concerns Program offices to document concerns brought to their attention and to assist in the resolution of concerns about various work-related issues including the environment, safety, health, employer-supervisor relationships, or work processes and practices.

The records will be maintained at all Department Employee Concerns Program offices at DOE Headquarters and Field offices. The categories of individuals covered will include current and former DOE employees, and current and former DOE contractor and subcontractor employees who have filed appropriate concerns.

This system proposes five new routine use disclosures. The five proposed routine uses will allow disclosure to designated representatives, including union or legal representatives, acting in their official capacity on behalf of the employee raising a concern or complaint; to a member of Congress or their staff when submitting a request involving a constituent and the constituent has requested assistance with respect to the subject matter of the record; to an appropriate Federal, State or local agency that is authorized to review and resolve or assist in the resolution of the concern or complaint; to another Federal agency; to a court, or a party in litigation before a court or in an administrative proceeding being conducted by or at the request of the Department or another Federal agency; and to a contractor or subcontractor of the Department that is authorized or responsible to review and resolve the issue(s) raised in the concern or complaint, including a mediator, facilitator, or arbitrator. These routine uses are compatible with the purpose of the system enabling the Department to document and resolve employee concerns about environmental, safety and health issues, employee-supervisor relations, work processes and practices, and other work-related issues.

The DOE proposes to exempt this system from subsections (k)(1), (2), and (5) of the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a, to the extent that information within the system meets the requirements of those subsections of the Act. The system will further be exempted from subsections (c)(3), (d), and (e)(1) of 5 U.S.C. 552a to the extent the information in this system of records is exempt pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(1), (2), and (5). See DOE Privacy Act Regulation at 10 CFR part 1008.12(b). The DOE Privacy Act regulation will be amended to allow these exemptions by publishing a separate proposed rulemaking under RIN: 1901-AA69.

The records in this system will be stored both in paper hard copy and in an automated database.

DOE-4 EIA-Form 457 Residential Energy Consumption Survey

On April 20, 1983, the DOE established a new system of records entitled “EIA Residential Energy Consumption Survey” (RECS). This system of records was grouped with an existing system of records “DOE-67 Participants in Experiments Studies and Surveys” and published as Subsystem C “EIA Residential Energy Consumption Survey” at 48 FR 16959. On November 27, 1998, DOE-67 and all of its subsystems were inappropriately deleted at 63 FR 65575. Documents within Subsystem C, are still required and maintained by the Energy Information Administration (EIA).

For this reason, the DOE is republishing the portion of DOE-67 that covered records maintained in Subsystem C. This notice proposes to change the name to “DOE-4 EIA-Form 457 Energy Survey Report—Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS).”

Data is collected by the EIA to satisfy the needs of the U.S. Government, State governments, industry, and the public Start Printed Page 27307for information at the national and sub-national levels on the consumption of and expenditures for fuels used by American homes. The data includes energy-related housing characteristics, appliance use, thermal characteristics of the housing unit, household vehicles, conservation measures taken by the household, demographic features of the household and weather conditions. The EIA disseminates this data through published reports used by a wide range of public and private groups, special statistical reports to U.S. Government agencies, and distribution of the basic data on computer data files properly edited to protect the identity of the household.

The data in the system of records will be collected by Roper Starch Worldwide, Inc. The information will be used by government and private groups for monitoring, modeling, and policymaking about energy use in U.S. households. In order to preserve the confidentiality of the data and to protect the privacy of the respondents, no individually identifiable data will be released.

DOE-6 EIA Customer Database

The DOE is proposing to establish a new system of records entitled “DOE-6 EIA Customer Data Base.” The EIA of the DOE is developing a program to gather data about its products and services provided to its customers. The data collection pertains largely to companies that request energy related information. However, there are occasions when private citizens request energy related information. The EIA will collect and maintain the names of its customers, business addresses and telephone numbers, description of information requested, and description of service(s). This data will be analyzed and evaluated by EIA staff personnel to account for orders and subscriptions and to better understand the needs and interests of its customers. The data may be retrieved under categories of records. The information will be maintained in computer programs and accessible to password holders in secured offices.

The system is being established under the authority vested in the Secretary contained in 42 U.S.C. 7101 et seq. and 50 U.S.C. 2401 et seq. The records also are maintained to better understand, control, and prepare for the work flow of the office and meeting the customers' needs. As a result, DOE does not believe the maintenance of this system will have any substantial effect on the privacy and other personal or property rights of the subject individuals. Access is restricted to authorized management personnel on a need-to-know basis.

DOE-7 Whistleblower Investigation, Hearing, and Appeal Records

DOE proposes to establish a new system of records entitled “DOE-7 Whistleblower Investigation, Hearing, and Appeal Records.” The records are being compiled by DOE as part of the Department's efforts to resolve whistleblower complaints, made by employees of DOE and by DOE contractors, at the investigatory, hearing, and appeal stages of a proceeding, for which the Office of Hearings and Appeals bears the responsibility. See Title 10, Code of Federal Regulations, part 708. These records will consist of information gathered, recorded, or processed in the course of the investigation of an allegation of acts of reprisal taken against a DOE employee or DOE-contractor employee who claims to have made a protected disclosure, as defined in those regulations, or in the course of a subsequent hearing or appeal. These records do not include the informal handling of whistleblower concerns in the Department's various Employee Concerns offices, nor files maintained at the Office of the Deputy Secretary concerning appeals from determinations made by the Director of the Office of Hearings and Appeals.

Information in the system will include whistleblower reprisal complaints; names and other identifying information about whistleblowers, their co-workers, their supervisors, and other individuals; employment records such as personnel actions and performance appraisals; witness statements and affidavits; notes taken by employees of the Office of Hearings and Appeals; reports of investigation; and correspondence related to the processing of the complaints.

The proposed new system will pertain to DOE employees and DOE-contractor employees who file reprisal complaints. Although the records contained in this system will be protected from disclosure in accordance with the provisions of the Privacy Act, the identity of the employee will be made known to his or her employer, because that entity will be provided with a copy of the complaint. See 10 CFR 708.11. Moreover, decisions, opinions, reports of investigation, orders and other determinations that the Office of Hearings and Appeals issues concerning such complaints are public documents and are published, along with our other decisions and orders, in a looseleaf service entitled Federal Energy Guidelines, as well as on the Office's website, the current address of which is http:/www.oha.doe.gov.

DOE proposes to exempt this system from subsections (k)(1), (2), and (5) of the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a, to the extent that information within the system meets the requirements of those subsections of the Act. The system will further be exempted from subsections (c)(3), (d), and (e)(1) of 5 U.S.C. 552a to the extent the information in this system of records is exempt pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(1), (2), and (5). See DOE Privacy Act Regulation at 10 CFR 1008.12(b). The DOE Privacy Act regulation will be amended to allow these exemptions by publishing a separate proposed rulemaking under RIN: 1901-AA69.

DOE-10 Worker Advocacy Records

The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 (hereinafter the “Act”), Pub. L. 106-398, provides that DOE assist workers with occupational illnesses to file State workers' compensation claims. DOE contractor employees with occupational illnesses that are not covered under the Federal program created by the Act can apply to the DOE Office of Worker Advocacy for help in obtaining State workers' compensation benefits. Under this effort, DOE will forward a worker's application to an independent panel of physicians appointed by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. The panel will determine whether the employee's illness or death was due to exposure to a toxic substance at a DOE facility. Based on a determination of work-relatedness, the Office of Worker Advocacy could assist the employee with a State claim for benefits, and DOE contractors would be directed not to contest claims before the State.

To adequately carry out the responsibilities given to DOE under the Act, the Office of Worker Advocacy will collect and maintain several types of records, e.g. medical records, employment records, to assist current and former DOE contractor employees or their families with the filing of State workers' compensation claims for conditions that may be due to exposures during employment by or for DOE. The assistance provided by this Office may include, but is not limited to the following: (1) Maintaining a helpline; (2) conducting outreach and educational programs; (3) providing referral assistance; and (4) case review. Although the primary focus is on DOE contractor employees, assistance may be provided to DOE Federal employees and employees of other agencies by directing them to the appropriate compensation programs, such as the Federal Employees Compensation Act program Start Printed Page 27308administered by the Department of Labor.

Individually identifiable information will not appear in published or unpublished reports, studies, or surveys. The system, however, will contain records compiled to complete published or unpublished reports, studies, or surveys from which information may be retrieved by name or other personal identifier. Non-identifiable information regarding the assumptions, methodology, and data used in establishing radiation doses under section 3623(d) of the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 will be made available to researchers and the general public, consistent with the protection of private medical records.

DOE-12 Automated Materials and Property Systems (AMPS)

The DOE is proposing to establish a new system of records entitled “DOE-12, Automated Materials and Property Systems (AMPS).” The Department has established a Working Capital Fund (WCF) that charges benefitting programs and organizations for certain administrative and housekeeping activities traditionally funded in a central account. One of the activities is a central supply service for stock and non-stock supplies and equipment that are maintained to meet in whole or in part the requirements of the Department.

The AMPS will be used by the DOE to control the incoming and outgoing expendable supplies that are used by DOE Headquarters employees to perform their work. The system will maintain inventories and costs of all supply products; records on quantities of supplies at the warehouse and all self service stores; prices for all of the items in each location; and point of sale transactions at all locations. Receipts will be generated that provide information about purchasers from their DOE identification badges. Reports will be created to provide usage, trends, customers, dates of purchases, and other related information. This information is provided to the WCF for billing DOE program offices. The WCF issues bills to Headquarters program offices for both stock and non-stock supplies that were purchased for use by their employees.

DOE-15 Intelligence Related Access Authorization

The DOE is proposing to establish a new system of records entitled “DOE-15 Intelligence Related Access Authorization.” This system will consist of administrative records concerning DOE Federal and contractor employees, consultants and certain other persons applying for, granted, or denied access to certain categories of classified information. The purpose of the system is to satisfy the requirements of Executive Order 12333, “United States Intelligence Activities,” Executive Order 12958, “Classified National Security Information” (April 17, 1995); Executive Order 12968, “Access to Classified Information” (August 2, 1995); Presidential Decision Directive-61, U.S. Department of Energy Counterintelligence Program, the DOE Procedures for Intelligence Activities, and DOE Order 5670.1A, Management and Control of Foreign Intelligence. Under DOE Order 5670.1A, the Director of the Office of Intelligence is directed to control access to and use of Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) and other classified intelligence information bearing the Director, Central Intelligence (DCI), authorized control markings, and to approve access to SCI in compliance with DCI directives. The proposed system will contain information necessary for the Director, IN, to conduct eligibility determinations, adjudications, revocations, and appeals from denials and revocations. The system is being established under the authority vested in the Secretary contained in 42 U.S.C. 7101 et seq. and 50 U.S.C. 2401 et seq. Access will be limited to authorized staff only.

The DOE proposes to exempt this system from subsections (k)(1), (2), and (5) of the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a, to the extent that information within the system meets the requirements of those subsections of the Act. The system will further be exempted from subsections (c)(3), (d), and (e)(1) of 5 U.S.C. 552a to the extent the information in this system of records is exempt pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(k)(1), (2), and (5). See DOE Privacy Act Regulation at 10 CFR Part 1008.12(b). The DOE Privacy Act regulation will be amended to allow these exemptions by publishing a separate proposed rulemaking under RIN: 1901-AA69.

The seven proposed new systems identified above have been assigned reserve numbers that were previously assigned to systems of records that have been deleted or are being deleted with this notice.

IV. Discussion of Deletion Notices

During the review process of the systems of records established by DOE under the Privacy Act, DOE identified 35 record systems for deletion. These record systems either duplicate other governmental or departmental record systems, were obsolete, or were not record systems subject to the Privacy Act. The published notice of these deleted systems can be found at 47 FR 14285, April 2, 1982; 62 FR 61497, November 18, 1997; and 63 FR 65575, November 27, 1998. This notice also deletes nine additional DOE internal record systems.

We have determined that information maintained in six systems of records is no longer collected or maintained. These systems are “DOE-12 Nationwide Traineeship Reporting System'; “DOE-22 Plant Services History”; “DOE-47 Security Investigation Records”; “DOE-65 Energy Extension Service Records'; “DOE-76 California, Utah, and Nevada Milk Directory”; and “DOE-87 Human Radiation Helpline Records.”

DOE-40 Contractor Employee Insurance Claims” currently covers Federal employees who sustain injuries while working on the job. It is not necessary for the DOE to maintain a record system of this type since these records are covered by the government-wide system DOL/GOV't-1 “Office of Workers” Compensation Programs, Federal Employees' Compensation Act File” that is administered by the Department of Labor.

Information maintained in “DOE-74 Bonneville Power Administration Conservation Program” is retrieved by company or utility name and, therefore, does not constitute a Privacy Act system of records.

Information maintained in “DOE-78 Pacific Northwest Residential Energy Survey” is retrieved by company or utility name and, therefore, does not constitute a Privacy Act system of records.

Information maintained in “DOE-27 Foreign Travel Records” duplicates information in a DOE internal system, “DOE-26 Official Travel Records.”
