SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, CSOSA proposes to establish a new system of records titled, “Kiosk System.” This system of records is being established to allow individuals under supervision who pose a very low level of risk to the community to use the self-service technology to provide the information needed to fulfill his/her reporting requirement and to allow the Community Supervision Officer to meet the documented contact and supervision standards. This is the same information that would be confirmed/verified if the individual were meeting with his/her Community Supervision Officer in person.

In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), CSOSA has provided a report of this system of records to the Office of Management and Budget and to Congress.
