Summary: Notice is hereby given that the Department of State proposes to create a new system of records, STATE-72, pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552a), and Office of Management and Budget Circular No. A-130, Appendix I. The Department's report was filed with the Office of Management and Budget on October 23, 2006.
It is proposed that the new system will be named “Identity Management System.” This system description is proposed in order to support the Bureau of Diplomatic Security's (DS) administration of the Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 Program that directs the use of a common identification credential for both logical and physical access to federally controlled facilities and information systems. The system description will reflect the DS personal identity verification (PIV) card record-keeping system, and Department of State identification card issuance activities and operations.
Any persons interested in commenting on this new system of records may do so by submitting comments in writing to Margaret P. Grafeld, Director; Office of Information Programs and Services; A/ISS/IPS; Department of State, SA-2; Washington, DC 20522-8100. This system of records will be effective 40 days from the date of publication, unless we receive comments that will result in a contrary determination.
This new system description, “Identity Management System, State-72,” will read as set forth below.Start Signature
Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Administration, Department of State.

POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORING, RETRIEVING, ACCESSING, RETAINING, AND DISPOSING OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:
Records are stored in electronic media and in paper files.
Records are retrievable by name; Social Security number; other identification number; PIV card number; image (photograph) and fingerprint.
Paper records are kept in locked cabinets in secure facilities and access to them is restricted to individuals whose role requires use of the records. The computer servers in which records are stored are located in facilities that are secured by alarm systems and off-master key access. The computer servers themselves are password-protected. Access to individuals working at guard stations is password-protected; each person granted access to the system at guard stations must be individually authorized to use the system. A Privacy Act Warning Notice appears on the computer screen prior to display of records containing information about individuals. Data exchanged between the servers and the client at the guard stations and badging office are encrypted. Backup tapes are stored in a locked and controlled room in a secure, off-site location.
An audit trail is maintained and reviewed periodically to identify unauthorized access. Persons given roles in the PIV process must complete training specific to their roles to ensure they are knowledgeable about how to protect individually identifiable information.
RETENTION AND DISPOSAL:
Records relating to persons' access covered by this system are retained, retired and destroyed in accordance with Department of State Records Disposition Schedules approved by NARA. More information may be obtained by writing the Director; Office of Information Programs and Services; SA-2, Department of State; 515 22nd Street; Washington, DC; 20522-8100.
In accordance with HSPD-12, Department of State Identification Cards are deactivated within 18 hours of cardholder separation, loss of card, or expiration. Department of State Identification Cards are destroyed by cross-cut shredding no later than 90 days after deactivation.
