SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Farm Service Agency (FSA) proposes to revise some existing routine uses, remove an unnecessary routine use, establish new routine uses, and update and clarify the notice. Routine uses identify individuals, groups, and entities to which the information may be disclosed.

FSA proposes to: (1) Remove routine use 13 and redesignate the routine uses currently designated numbers 14 through 21 as numbers 13 through 20, respectively; (2) revise routine uses numbers 1, 10, and newly designated 16 and 20; (3) add five new routine uses to be designated as routine uses numbers 21, 22, 23, 24, and 25, respectively, for the USDA/FSA-2, Farm Records File; and (4) correct, revise, and add information in the following categories: System Location, Categories of Individuals Covered by the System, Categories of Records in the System, Authority for Maintenance of the System, Purpose(s), System Manager(s) and Address, and Record Source Categories in USDA/FSA-2.

Revise Routine Use 1

FSA is revising routine use number 1 to add designated marketing associations (DMAs) and loan servicing agents (LSAs) as entities approved to carry out Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) marketing assistance loan and loan deficiency payment programs and also to list the types of data that will be made available. These entities were authorized to conduct business on behalf of FSA by the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107-171) and prior legislation.

Revise Routine Use 10

FSA is revising routine use number 10 to remove obsolete references to information about producers participating in the peanut production control and quota programs. Those programs were ended by the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (Pub. L. 107-171) and the use of such information is thus no longer needed. Once revised, routine use 10 would read as follows:

(10) To the Peanut Board with respect to producers of peanuts and their participation in the peanut price support program.

Remove Routine Use 13

FSA is deleting routine use number 13 and renumbering the remaining routine uses. Current routine use 13 regards disclosure of information to tobacco analysis laboratories of producers' names and addresses as well as crop-specific data regarding tobacco being analyzed prior to the marketing of such tobacco. This disclosure was needed for the Tobacco Quota and Price Support Programs, which were repealed by sections 611 through 613 of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (Pub. L. 108-357), and thus is no longer needed.

Revise Routine Use 16 (formerly 17):

FSA proposes to revise the routine use currently designated number 17 and redesignated as number 16, to add farm numbers and cotton yields to the data currently received by cotton ginners. Cotton ginners already receive information relating to names, addresses, and cotton acreage. If disaster programs are enacted similar to recent disaster programs for cottonseed, the additional data will allow cotton ginners to more efficiently deliver disaster programs.

Revise Routine Use 20 (formerly 21):

FSA proposes to revise the routine use currently designated number 21 and redesignated as number 20, to reflect changes to information disclosed to State-certified or State-licensed appraisers and employees of Federal agencies other than USDA who are qualified to perform real estate appraisals. This revision is necessary due to changes in program names and/or designations within FSA. Specifically, Production Flexibility Contract Acres would be changed to read “Direct and Counter-cyclical Program (DCP) Contract Base Acres.” Further, a reference to “DCP cropland acres” would be added to agricultural use acres and cropland acres, a category already listed in routine use number 21, to replace the obsolete term “agricultural use acres.”

Once revised, newly designated routine use 20 would read as follows:

(20) To State-certified or State-licensed appraisers and employees of Federal agencies other than USDA qualified to perform real estate appraisals. The specific information that may be disclosed to such appraisers consists of:

—Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program (DCP) Contract Base Acres.

—Payment yields.

—DCP cropland and cropland acres.

—Copies of aerial photography.

—Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres.

—Highly erodible land (HEL) delineations.

—Wetland classifications.

Proposed New Routine Use 21

The first proposed new routine use, designated as number 21, would provide for disclosure of certain hard copy or electronic records in this system to cooperating Federal, State, and local agencies, as necessary for implementation of conservation programs. This limited disclosure falls within FSA's mandate to promote a viable agriculture economy and is essential for effective implementation of conservation programs. Cooperating Federal, State, and local agency employees are bound by ethical standards and State or local regulations not to further disclose such information without the permission of the client.

The specific information to be disclosed to the cooperating Federal, State, and local agencies employees consists of:

—Producer name/address/tax identification number.

—Digital imagery, including Common Land Unit (CLU) boundaries, calculated acreage, and farm, tract, and field identifiers.

—Environmental resources and disaster data.

—Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) data.

—Highly erodible land (HEL) delineations and data.

—Conservation Producer payment history.

—Wetlands classifications.

Proposed New Routine Use 22

The second proposed new routine use, designated as number 22, permits disclosure of certain electronic records in this system through incorporation of these records into the Comprehensive Information Management System (CIMS) in accordance with the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002, section 10706.

CIMS is a system of computer programs and databases, physically Start Printed Page 70561located in Kansas City, Missouri, that is jointly maintained by FSA and the Risk Management Agency (RMA) utilizing the services of an information technology contractor. CIMS contains producer, program, and land information from FSA, RMA, and approved insurance providers (AIPs), as defined in section 502(b) of the Federal Crop Insurance Act (7 U.S.C.1502(b)). CIMS acts as a repository of data and also combines, reconciles, defines, translates, and formats data in such a manner so it can be used by entities that have authorized access to CIMS.

CIMS will be used to help RMA and FSA administer their programs by allowing the agencies to discover and correct errors in reporting and assist the producer to provide consistent information to FSA, RMA, and AIPs.

The electronic information contained in CIMS will be disclosed to RMA and AIPs under contract with RMA and further disclosed to the AIP's insurance agents and loss adjusters. The electronic information may also be disclosed to any contractor engaged in the development or maintenance of CIMS. Such disclosures are necessary to administer and enforce requirements of the Federal crop insurance program, an integral part of the USDA farm program system. To ensure that AIPs, and their insurance agents and loss adjusters, are only receiving information related to their specific insureds, all requests for information provided through CIMS will be automatically validated by CIMS software. Validation is accomplished by checking producer information provided directly to CIMS by data requestors against an RMA maintained database of accepted policies incorporated into CIMS. AIPs will be required to sign a non-disclosure statement before accessing CIMS to preclude them from using the information for an unauthorized purpose or releasing the information to an unauthorized person or the public.

RMA and any contractor engaged in the development or maintenance of CIMS will have access to all FSA data incorporated into CIMS. FSA data will only be disclosed to the AIPs, their insurance agents and loss adjusters, for information associated with their insured producers and only with regard to such producers' farming operations contained in counties covered by their policies. The FSA data disclosed through access to CIMS data consist of:

—Electronic Producer and Member Entity Information, including a common producer name, address, tax identifier, identity type, and entity file.

—Current and prior crop year electronic report acreage information reported to FSA by producers, and acreage determined by FSA, as applicable, and farm and producer identifiers.

—Electronic production data/information used by both FSA and RMA to establish program benefits. This data/information is the basis for determination of accurate monetary benefits.

—Digital imagery and geospatial data layer containing CLU boundaries, calculated acres, State and county codes, and unique identifiers for those States in which the AIPs have contracted with RMA to sell crop insurance. This will enable AIPs to associate farm, tract, and CLU numbers to geospatial data for their insured producers. A CLU is an electronic representation of the boundaries of a piece of land, represented in latitudes and longitudes. It is the smallest unit of land that has a permanent, contiguous boundary; common land cover and land management; common owner; and common producer association.

Proposed New Routine Use 23

The third proposed new routine use, designated as number 23, permits disclosure of certain hard-copy records from this system of records to AIPs (excluding their insurance agents) and loss adjusters for their respective insured producers. This includes copies of their insured producer's form FSA-578, Producer Print Acreage Reports and photocopies of maps for associated land to be used for the purpose of fulfilling loss adjustment obligations as well as for audits and reviews of claims. Limited disclosure of this hard-copy information assists USDA in effectively administering and enforcing the national crop insurance program. The specific hard copy information to be disclosed to the AIPs (excluding their insurance agents) and loss adjusters for information associated with their insured producers and only with regard to such producers' farming operations contained in counties covered by their policies, consists of:

—Producer and Member Entity Information, including a common producer name, address, tax identifier, identity type, and entity file.

—Current and prior crop year acreage report information reported to FSA by producers, acreage determined by FSA, and associated maps.

—Production data/information used by both FSA and RMA to establish program benefits. This data/information is the basis for determination of accurate monetary benefits.

Proposed New Routine Use 24

The fourth proposed new routine use, designated as number 24, would permit disclosure of certain records in this file to cooperating Federal, State, and local agencies, including State universities, and sugar cane processors as necessary for implementation of hurricane disaster programs and other studies related to the sugar industry.

Limited sharing of data with cooperating Federal, State, and local agencies, including State universities, and sugar cane processors permits FSA to tailor its hurricane sugar cane disaster programs to specific local needs. In 2002 and 2005, hurricanes decimated the Louisiana sugar industry and FSA was directed to provide assistance. The sugar cane industry requested the assistance of Louisiana State University (LSU) in developing and implementing a program specifically designed to meet the needs of Louisiana. LSU requires limited data from FSA files to accomplish their role.

The hurricane sugar cane disaster programs are statutorily required to be administered through the sugar cane processing companies. Sugar cane processing companies pay growers for their sugar cane based on the revenue from the sugar extracted from the growers' sugar cane. Most of the Federal assistance for the hurricane sugar cane damage is statutorily required to be treated as sugar revenue lost to the processors and growers. Thus, FSA makes payments to the processors, who share the payments to growers as they would sugar revenue. LSU requires FSA grower acreage data to make the sugar loss calculations required as part of the processor's application for assistance under the hurricane sugar cane disaster programs.

This system of records is being amended to add a routine use allowing the limited disclosure of producer and farm information to employees of cooperating Federal, State, and local agencies, including State universities who are qualified to assist in the development and implementation of hurricane sugar cane disaster programs. The specific information to be disclosed to the employees of cooperating Federal, State, and local agencies, including State universities consists of:

  • Producer name/address.
  • Acreage and farm, tract, and field identifiers.
  • Environmental resources and disaster data. Start Printed Page 70562

Proposed New Routine Use 25

The fifth proposed new routine use, designated as number 25, would permit disclosure of certain records in this file to appropriate agencies, entities, and persons as necessary to respond to suspected or confirmed compromise of the security or confidentiality of information in the system of records and to prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm.

A Federal agency's ability to respond quickly and effectively in the event of a breach of Federal data is critical to its efforts to prevent or minimize any consequent harm. An effective response necessitates disclosure of information regarding the breach to those individuals affected by it, as well as to persons and entities in a position to cooperate, either by assisting in notification to affected individuals or playing a role in preventing or minimizing harms from the breach.

This routine use will allow the disclosure of information in the course of responding to a breach of Federal data. This routine use will serve to protect the interests of the individuals whose information is at issue by allowing agencies to take appropriate steps to facilitate a timely and effective response, thereby improving their ability to prevent, minimize, or remedy any harm resulting from a compromise of data maintained in their systems of records.

This system of records is being amended to add a routine use allowing the limited disclosure to appropriate agencies, entities, and persons when (1) the agency suspects or has confirmed that the security or confidentiality of information in the system of records has been compromised; (2) the Department has determined that as a result of the suspected or confirmed compromise there is a risk of harm to economic or property interests, identity theft or fraud, or harm to the security or integrity of this system or other systems or programs (whether maintained by the Department or another agency or entity) that rely upon the compromised information; and (3) the disclosure made to such agencies, entities, and persons is reasonably necessary to assist in connection with the Department's efforts to respond to the suspected or confirmed compromise and prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm.

Proposed Revisions to Other Categories of Information

FSA proposes to make changes to seven categories of information in the system of records because of agency reorganization, new programs, and advanced technologies. These changes have been made to the following: correction of the names and addresses listed in the categories of System Location and System Manager(s) and Address; the addition of another group of persons covered in the Categories of Individuals Covered by the System; the addition of types of files/records/materials collected and maintained due to new Congressionally approved programs and advanced technology in the Categories of Records in the System; the addition of new statutes listed in the Authority for Maintenance of the System, and to revise the reasons for collecting and maintaining information in this system of records in the Purpose(s).

Report

A “Report on Revised System,” required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) as implemented by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-130, was sent to the Chairman, Committee on Governmental Affairs, United States Senate; the Chairman, Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, House of Representatives; and the Administrator, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, on December 4, 2007.
