SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a) and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-130, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) completed a review of its Privacy Act system of records notice. As a result of the review BEP is proposing to add two new routine uses to BEP .006 to assist BEP to perform necessary functions such as (1) to maintain records about individuals who owe debt(s) to the United States, through one or more of its departments and agencies, and/or to individuals, including past due support enforced by states and (2) for the purpose of taking action to facilitate the collection and resolution of the debt(s) using various collection methods, including, but not limited to, offset, levy, administrative wage garnishment.

The proposed routine uses are as follows:

(1) These records may be used to disclose information to a court of competent jurisdiction, an authorized official or authorized state agency as defined in 5 CFR parts 581 and 582, or a party to a garnishment action, in response to legal process, including interrogatories, served on the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in connection with garnishment proceedings against a current or former employee, and

(2) These records may be used to provide information to private creditors for the purpose of garnishment of wages of an employee if a debt has been reduced to a judgment.

The report of the altered systems of records, as required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) of the Privacy Act, has been submitted to the Committee on Government Reform of the House of Representatives, the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs of the Senate, and the Office of Management and Budget, pursuant to Appendix I to OMB Circular A-130, “Federal Agency Responsibilities for Maintaining Records About Individuals,” dated November 30, 2000.

The system of records notice was last published in its entirety on June 29, 2009, at 74 FR 31092. The proposed alterations to “Treasury/BEP .006—Debt Files (Employees)” are set forth below.
