AGENCY:

ACTION:

Notice to delete 10 systems of records.

SUMMARY:

CMS proposes to delete 10 systems of records from its inventory subject to the Privacy Act of 1974 (Title 5 United States Code § 552a). CMS is reorganizing its databases because of the amount of information it collects to administer the Medicare program. Retention and destruction of the data contained in these systems will follow the schedules listed in the system notice.

To ensure that all parties have adequate time in which to comment, the deletions will become effective 30 days from the publication of the notice, or 40 days from the date it was submitted to OMB and Congress, whichever is later, unless CMS receives comments that require alterations to this notice.

ADDRESSES:

The public should address comments to: CMS Privacy Officer, Division of Privacy Compliance, Enterprise Architecture and Strategy Group, Office of Information Services, CMS, Room N2-04-27, 7500 Security Boulevard, Baltimore, Maryland 21244-1850.
