SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552a, Treasury and the United States Mint proposes to establish a new system of records entitled, “Treasury/United States Mint .013—United States Mint National Electronic Incident Reporting System of Records.”

The United States Mint is establishing the United States Mint National Electronic Incident Reporting System of Records to enhance the incident management capabilities of the United States Mint Police. The system will be a centrally managed electronic database and workflow system that will support the collection, management, and sharing of information regarding reported incidents on or related to United States Mint property; property for which the United States Mint shares jurisdiction through a Cooperative Agreement, Memorandum of Understanding or other arrangement; or property or assets under United States Mint custody or control. It is intended to be usable by all United States Mint Police Officers in accordance with applicable procedures, improve data management and security, and provide a tracking system to notify supervisors of case status.

While the system is generally organized by incident and not by individual, it contains personal information on individuals searchable by individual name or other personal identifier. Information in the system is expected to include some or all of the following: Individual names, addresses, phone numbers, dates of birth, driver's license numbers, social security numbers, license plate numbers, medical information (typically in the case of accidents or injuries), investigation information, property descriptions, vehicle identifying information and physical descriptions. Information collected is protected throughout the life cycle of the system.

All information about an individual provided to the United States Mint Police that becomes part of this system of records in connection with incidents on or related to the following will be subject to the Privacy Act and to the Privacy Act exceptions and routine uses applicable to the data: United States Mint property; property for which the United States Mint Police share jurisdiction (through a Cooperative Agreement, Memorandum of Understanding or other arrangement); or property or assets under United States Mint custody or control.

The individuals who will have access to the system include authorized employees and contractors working for the United States Mint who have undergone security background checks, have Privacy Act clauses in their contracts, and have signed nondisclosure agreements with the United States Mint. The program office and system owner will be responsible for assuring proper use of the data contained in the system. Paper records are stored in secured filing cabinets with access only by authorized personnel. Electronic records are stored in secured systems subject to access controls in accordance with Department of the Treasury and United States Mint policies and procedures. Access to electronic records is restricted to authorized personnel, and is subject to multiple controls including an access approval process, unique user identifier, user authentication and account management, and password management.

Authority for this system derives from 40 U.S.C. 1315, 31 U.S.C. 321, 31 U.S.C. 5141 (note), and Treasury Order 101-33 (March 30, 2010). Below is the description of the Treasury/United States Mint .013—United States Mint National Electronic Incident Reporting System of Records. In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), Treasury has provided a report of this system of records to the Office of Management and Budget and to Congress.
