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

To officials and employees of other departments and agencies of the Executive Branch of government, upon request, in the performance of their official duties related to the management of civilian personnel employed by the Marine Corps.

The DoD `Blanket Routine Uses' set forth at the beginning of the U.S. Marine Corps' compilation of systems of records notices apply to this system.
