GSA undertook and completed an agency wide review of its Privacy Act systems of records. As a result of the review GSA is publishing updated Privacy Act systems of records notices. Rather than make numerous piecemeal revisions, GSA is republishing updated notices for one of its systems. Nothing in the revised system notices indicates a change in authorities or practices regarding the collection and maintenance of information. Nor do the changes impact individuals' rights to access or amend their records in the systems of records. The updated system notices also includes the new requirement from OMB Memorandum M-07-16 regarding a new routine use that allows agencies to disclose information in connection with a response and remedial efforts in the event of a data breach.Start Signature
