This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Start Printed Page 37938SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
The Office of the Surgeon General is developing a new system of records, 09-90-0160, “Medical Reserve Corps Unit Information, HHS/OPHS/OSG,” that will collect and maintain information about MRC units registered with the OSG/MRC program office. Information gathered will include unit demographics, contact information (regular and emergency), volunteer numbers, activity updates and samples of best practices/lessons learned. MRC unit leaders are asked to update this information at least quarterly. In addition, information pertaining to MRC members who are able and willing to be utilized outside their local jurisdiction will be collected (this subset of the MRC will be known as the “PHS Auxiliary”).
Appropriate safeguards are in place to protect the integrity and privacy of the system. Access to records is limited to MRC program staff, and contractors, consultants or grantees who have been engaged by the Department to assist with the MRC program and who need access to the records in order to perform the activity. All computer equipment and files are stored in areas where fire and life safety codes are strictly enforced, and computer networks and web-accessible systems are password protected.
It is anticipated that disclosure may be made to U.S. Government employees, as well as to contractors, consultants or grantees, who have been engaged by the Department to assist with the MRC program. Routine uses of the collected data will allow for the successful coordination of the program, and adequate reporting to applicable agencies/organizations.
This system of records is required to comply with the implementation directives of the Act, Public Law 108-20.
The following notice is written in the present tense, rather than in the future tense, in order to avoid the unnecessary expenditure of public funds to republish the notice after the system becomes effective.Start Signature
