AGENCY:

ACTION:

Notice to alter a System of Records.

SUMMARY:

The Defense Health Agency proposes to alter an existing system of records, EDHA 11, entitled “Defense Medical Human Resources System internet (DMHRSi)” in its inventory of record systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. This system consolidates all of the human resources functions, including readiness, manpower, labor cost assignment, education, and training, for personnel across the DoD medical enterprise, thereby providing a single database source of instant query/access for all personnel types and the readiness posture of all DoD medical personnel. This system of records permits ready access to essential manpower, personnel, labor cost assignment, education and training, and personnel readiness information across the DoD medical enterprise.
