AGENCY:

United States International Trade Commission.

ACTION:

Notice of proposed addition of new systems of records; addition of new routine uses and other changes to existing systems of records; request for comments on proposed revisions of systems of records.

SUMMARY:

The U.S. International Trade Commission (“Commission”) previously published notices describing the systems of records it maintains pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974. The Commission proposes to add four new systems of records. These new systems of records are entitled: Administrative Protective Order Breach and Related Start Printed Page 35295Records; Import and Export Records; Telecommuting Program Records; and Emergency Notification Records. The Commission also is issuing notice of its intent to take the following actions: Change the identity of the agency's Privacy Act Officer in the descriptions of all Commission systems of records; revise the existing system of records entitled “Pay, Leave, and Travel Records” by removing references to travel records and adding several new categories of records as well as a new routine use; revise the system of records designated as “Parking and Mass Transit Subsidy Records” by extending the categories of individuals covered by the system; and add new routine uses to the existing systems of records entitled “Office of Inspector General Investigative Files (General)” and “Office of Inspector General Investigative Files (Criminal).” The Commission issues this notice to satisfy the Privacy Act's requirement to publish in the Federal Register notice of the existence and character of records systems maintained by the Commission and of any new use or intended use of information in the Commission's systems of records. This notice also republishes in one location descriptions of all Commission systems of records for the convenience of interested parties.

DATES:

Written comments must be received no later than July 31, 2006. The proposed revisions to the Commission's systems of records will become effective on that date unless otherwise published in the Federal Register.

ADDRESSES:

Comments should be directed to the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, 500 E Street, SW., Washington, DC 20436.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 522a(e)(4), (11)), the Commission proposes to add the description of four new systems of records, revise the descriptions of its systems of records, and compile a description of all Commission systems of records for ease of reference by interested persons. The Commission previously published notices concerning these systems of records, most recently at 62 FR 23485 (Apr. 30, 1997), 64 FR 62691 (Nov. 17, 1999), and 67 FR 31824 (May 10, 2002). The Commission invites interested persons to submit comments on the actions proposed in this notice.

The Commission proposes to add four new systems of record. The first new system of records is designated as ITC-13 (Administrative Protective Order Breach and Related Records). The addition of this system of records reflects agency practice in the handling of investigations into alleged breaches of administrative protective orders and alleged grounds for sanctions under section 201.15 of Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure.

The second new system of records is designated as ITC-14 (Import and Export Records). This system of records will assist the Commission in conducting import investigations and industry and economic analysis.

The third new system of records is designated as ITC-15 (Telecommuting Program Records). This system of records will be used to administer and monitor employee compliance with the agency's telecommuting program.

The fourth new system of records is designated as ITC-16 (Emergency Notification Records). This system of records will assist the Commission in notifying and identifying employees or their designees in emergency situations.

The Commission also proposes to revise the descriptions of all Commission systems of records to reflect the transfer of the responsibilities of Privacy Act Officer for the agency from the Director of Administration to the Secretary. The Commission further proposes to revise the system location of the system of records designated as ITC-8 (Library Circulation Records) to reflect the changed name of the agency's library.

In addition, the Commission proposes to revise the system of records designated as ITC-1 (Pay, Leave, and Travel Records) by removing references to travel records and changing the designation to “Pay and Leave Records.” The Commission is making this revision to avoid duplication with the General Services Administration's government-wide system of records, GSA/GOVT-4 (Contracted Travel Services Program), which covers all travel records currently covered by ITC-1. The Commission also proposes to add several new categories of records and a new routine use to this system. The Commission is making these revisions to include additional records the agency maintains covering benefits available to eligible employees. The additional routine use would allow the disclosure of information, only as necessary, to the Department of Interior to effectuate repayment of qualifying employees' federally insured student loans.

The Commission further proposes to revise the system of records designated as ITC-9 (Parking and Mass Transit Subsidy Records) by extending the categories of individuals covered by the system to include former Commission employees. The Commission is making this revision to align the categories of individuals covered by the system with its retention policy, which lasts for two years.

Finally, the Commission proposes to add three routine uses to the systems of records designated as ITC-3 (Office of Inspector General Investigative Files (General)) and ITC-4 (Office of Inspector General Investigative Files (Criminal)). One additional routine use would allow the disclosure of information, as necessary, to persons charged with the responsibility to conduct qualitative assessment reviews of internal safeguards and management procedures employed in Office of Inspector General investigative operations. Another additional use would allow the disclosure of information to members of the President's Council on Integrity and Efficiency and Executive Council on Integrity and Efficiency, and their staff, for the preparation of reports to the President and Congress on the activities of the Inspectors General. The last additional routine use would permit the disclosure of information to any person who has been engaged to assist the Office of Inspector General in the performance of an investigation for the Commission, of a violation or potential violation of law—criminal, civil, or regulatory in nature—and who needs to have access to the records to perform the investigation.

As required by subsection 552a(r) of the Privacy Act, the proposed revisions will be reported to the Office of Management and Budget, the Chair of the Committee on Government Reform of the House of Representatives, and the Chair of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs of the Senate.
