SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

IRS is proposing to alter the Privacy Act system of records entitled Treasury/IRS 34.013, Identification Media Files System for Employees and Others Issued IRS Identification, to include the additional purpose of using the physical access control system to determine the most efficient way for IRS to manage office space.

IRS employees present their Federal Standard Homeland Security Policy Directive (HSPD)-12 Personal Identity Verification (PIV Card) to a card reader to enter IRS facilities. The card reader scans the employee's identity credentials and transmits the data to a server that verifies the employee's authorization to enter a facility.

This entrance information will be aggregated to protect employee privacy and will then be used to enable IRS to more efficiently determine what space it needs for optimum use of resources. A notice describing this system of records was most recently published at 77 FR 155, August 10, 2012. IRS Proposes to alter the system to include the collection of this data.
