SUMMARY:

The Department of the Army proposes to alter a system of records notice, A0600-63 G3/5/7, entitled “Soldier Fitness Tracker System” in its existing inventory of records systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. This system supports a systematic collection, analysis, interpretation, and reporting of standardized, population based data for the purposes of self-assessing, characterizing, and developing individualized profiles to guide individuals through structured self-development training modules with the goal of improving mental and physical well-being, coping skills and strategies. The Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness (CSF2) program, which operates the Soldier Fitness Tracker System, routinely advises leadership of trends and anomalies.
