The Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) is adding as a new category under the heading “Categories of individuals,” all official visitors who do not possess a valid Federal Government ID. The change will allow the BEP to have a record of all official visitors who enter one of its premises. Under the heading “Categories of records”, category (C) is being revised to reflect the collection of information about official visitors to a BEP facility will include their full name, social security number and date of birth (DOB). The collection of this information will allow a security check to be made on all such persons entering the buildings. Start Printed Page 58102

Under the heading “retention”, BEP is adding language concerning the retention of the records submitted by the visitors to the bureau premises. Under the heading “System Manager,” the identification of the system manager at the Fort Worth facility is being changed to show that the Manager of the Security and Police Division is the specific individual responsible for the maintenance of the records at that facility.

Finally, all references to Bureau of the Public Debt (BPD) employees are removed from the text under the headings “Categories of individuals,” “Categories of records in the system,” and “Safeguards,” as they no longer occupy the BEP facility.
