Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Defense Finance and Accounting Service, DoD.

ACTION:

Notice to alter a system of records.

SUMMARY:

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service proposes to alter a system of records notice, T7335d, entitled “Civilian Pay Accounting Interface Records” in its inventory of record systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. This system maintains and processes civilian payroll accounting and finance data that originates in the Defense Civilian Payroll System (DCPS). The Civilian Pay Accounting Interface System (CPAIS) receives bi-weekly files that are used to generate civilian payroll costs, manpower data and reports; and detailed management reports for the U.S. Air Force. The system will also contain information on other than U.S. Air Force civilian employees. However, the CPAIS system will not use the non-Start Printed Page 68422Air Force data other than to transmit it directly to the General Accounting and Finance System (GAFS).

DATES:

Comments will be accepted on or before December 17, 2014. This proposed action will be effective the date following the end of the comment period unless comments are received which result in a contrary determination.
