CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:

Individuals, businesses, and organizations that have registered to participate in the DoD Surplus Sales Program.

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:

Individual's name, business and home addresses and telephone numbers, bidder identification and registration number, bidder status code, Social Security Number (SSN) or Taxpayer ID number, amounts paid, owed or refunded, data on bad checks, bid bond data, and bank guarantee code.

AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM:

10 U.S.C. 133, Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Technology; 40 U.S.C. 101 et seq., Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949, as amended; 50 U.S.C. App. 2401 et seq., Export Control; 41 CFR part 101-45; and E.O. 9397 (SSN), as amended.

PURPOSE(S):

Information is collected and maintained for the purpose of registering bidders for DRMS Surplus Sales; creating sales contracts; creating cash collection and refund vouchers; recording payments and property removal details; indebtedness; and other actions associated with the sales transaction.

Data may also be used by DoD law enforcement agencies responsible for auditing and investigating or enforcing criminal, civil, or administrative laws; the Defense Reutilization and Marketing Offices (DRMO) for the purpose of notifying bidders of upcoming surplus sales of potential interest to bidders; the Defense Finance and Accounting Service for the purpose of collecting and depositing payments owed to DRMS; and statistical data with all personal identifiers removed may be used by management for reporting or program management purposes.

ROUTINE USES OF RECORDS MAINTAINED IN THE SYSTEM, INCLUDING CATEGORIES OF USERS AND THE PURPOSES OF SUCH USES:

In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. 552a(b) of the Privacy Act of 1974, these records may specifically be disclosed outside the DoD as a routine use pursuant to 5 U.S.C 552a(b)(3) as follows:

To the General Services Administration for the purpose of adding and flagging bidder's records debarred from doing business with the Federal Government.

To the DRMS commercial sales venture partner(s) for the purpose of registering bidders for their surplus sales, creating sales contracts, creating cash collection and refund vouchers, recording payments and property removal details, indebtedness, and other actions associated with the sales transaction.

The DoD “Blanket Routine Uses” also apply to this system of records.

DISCLOSURE TO CONSUMER REPORTING AGENCIES:

Disclosures pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(12) may be made from this system to “consumer reporting agencies” as defined in the Fair Credit Reporting Act (14 U.S.C. 1681a(f)) or the Federal Claims Collection Act of 1966 (31 U.S.C. 3701(a)(3)). The purpose of this disclosure is to aid in the collection of outstanding debts owed to the Federal government, typically to provide an incentive for debtors to repay delinquent Federal government debts by making these debts part of their credit records.

The disclosure is limited to information necessary to establish the identity of the individual, including name, address, and taxpayer identification number (TIN) or Social Security Number (SSN), the amount, status, and history of the claim; and the agency or program under which the claim arose for the sole purpose of allowing the consumer reporting agency to prepare a commercial credit report.

Passwords are tested for strength at the time of selection. Users are warned of the consequences of improperly accessing restricted databases and data misuse at each login, during staff meetings, and during separate Information Assurance and Privacy Act training. After hours, records are stored in locked file cabinets, locked rooms, or areas controlled by personnel screening. All file cabinets containing information subject to the Privacy Act of 1974 must have DLA Form 1461 affixed to the outside of the storage compartment. This form reads:

The material/information contained herein falls within the purview of the Privacy Act of 1974 and will be safeguarded in accordance with the applicable systems of records notice and 32 CFR part 323.
