Notice to alter a System of Records.
The Office of the Secretary of Defense proposes to alter a system of records, DPR 40 DoD, entitled “Wounded Warrior Care and Recovery Transition Coordination Program System Solution” in its inventory of record systems subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended.
This system is used to improve the timeliness, efficacy, and transparency of the care, management, and transition of recovering Service Members or eligible family members and caregivers receiving support (as defined in DoD Instruction 1300.24). Contact information is used by case managers to facilitate the uniformity and effectiveness of care and/or transition from active duty to temporary or permanent retirement for eligible individuals. These records are also used as a management tool for statistical analysis, tracking, reporting, evaluating program effectiveness and conducting research.
Comments will be accepted on or before January 29, 2015. 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.
