How Systems of Records Are Arranged

Imagery and Mapping Agency records are grouped by subject series. Each series has records about a specific activity or function to which a subject title and number is given. Systems or records are grouped in the same way. For example, a system of records on personnel security clearances may be found in Personnel Security Files—B0504-01 and one about military personnel assignments may be found in Military Services Administrative Record Files—B0614-02. These numbers are part of the system identification. The letter B means National Imagery and Mapping Agency. The first four digits (0504 and 0614) show that the records pertain to Personnel Security and Military Personnel respectively, and the last two are a further breakdown of the series. Other systems of records which differ from these examples but have similar documents may also be found in the same series.

How To Use the Index Guide

The systems of records maintained by the National Imagery and Mapping Agency are contained within the subject series that are listed below. This list identifies each series in the order in which it appears in this issuance. Use the list to identify subject areas of interest. Having done so, use the series number (for example 0504 for Personnel Security) to locate the systems of records grouping in which you are interested.

Requesting Records

Records are retrieved by name or by some other personal identifier. It is therefore especially important for expeditious service when requesting a record that particular attention be provided to the Notification and/or Access Procedures of the particular record system involved so as to furnish the required personal identifiers, or any other pertinent personal information as may be required to locate and retrieve the record.

Blanket Routine Uses

Certain ‘blanket routine uses’ of the records have been established that are applicable to every record system maintained within the Department of Defense unless specifically stated otherwise within a particular record system. These additional blanket routine uses of the records are published below only once in the interest of simplicity, economy and to avoid redundancy.

Law Enforcement Routine Use

In the event that a system of records maintained by this component to carry out its functions indicates a violation or potential violation of law, whether civil, criminal or regulatory in nature, and whether arising by general statute or by regulation, rule or order issued pursuant thereto, the relevant records in the system of records may be referred, as a routine use, to the appropriate agency, whether Federal, state, local, or foreign, charged with the responsibility of investigating or prosecuting such violation or charged with enforcing or implementing the statute, rule, regulation or order issued pursuant thereto.

For personnel separated, discharged, or retired from the Armed Forces, information as to last known residential or home of record address may be provided to the military banking facility upon certification by a banking facility officer that the facility has a returned or dishonored check negotiated by the individual or the individual has defaulted on a loan and that if restitution is not made by the individual, the U.S. Government will be liable for the losses the facility may incur.
