USAID is proposing to alter its system of records pursuant to the Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a), entitled the Deployment Tracking System (DTS). This system was established to support USAID's responsibilities as part of an interagency effort led by the Department of State, known as the Civilian Response Corps (CRC). In order to participate as a partner agency, USAID must have mechanisms in place to identify, assign or employ personnel with appropriate skill sets and have the ability to mobilize these resources rapidly in response to stabilization crisis.

USAID is proposing to alter its “Deployment Tracking System Records” to increase the categories of records contained within the system of records. Start Printed Page 39615This expansion is needed in order to fully participate with the other partner agencies and meet the data collection requirements of the CRC. USAID proposes to add the following categories of records: Citizenship, military service information, social security number, medical clearance information and security clearance information. This information is required by the CRC to help determine which individuals are appropriate for each mission, assist in coordinating visas, registering individuals on military flights, ensuring individuals are properly cleared for deployment and determining if an individual has the appropriate clearances to attend briefings.
