End Further Info End Preamble Start Supplemental Information

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

To inform the public, the FTC publishes in the Federal Register and posts on its Web site a “system of records notice” (SORN) for each system of records about individuals that the FTC currently maintains within the meaning of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552a. See http://www.ftc.gov/​about-ftc/​foia/​foia-reading-rooms/​privacy-act-systems. Each SORN describes the records maintained in each system, including the categories of individuals that the records in the system are about (e.g., FTC employees or consumers). Each system notice also contains information explaining how individuals can find out from the agency if that system contains any records about them.

On June 12, 2008, the FTC republished and updated all of the FTC's SORNs, describing all of the agency's systems of records covered by the Privacy Act in a single document for ease of use and reference. 73 FR 33592. To ensure the SORNs remain accurate, FTC staff reviews each SORN on a periodic basis. As a result of this systematic review, the FTC made revisions to several of its SORNs on April 17, 2009, 74 FR 17863, and on August 27, 2010, 75 FR 52749. Based on subsequent review, the FTC is making the following technical revisions to several of its SORNs and one of the appendices.[1]

I. FTC Law Enforcement Systems of Records

FTC-I-8 (Stenographic Reporting Services Request System—FTC). This SORN covers the database system that the FTC uses to log and fulfill requests by FTC attorneys for stenographic services in FTC investigations, litigation and other FTC matters. The Commission is including additional types of records under “category of records” and changing the retrievability section to reflect the capabilities of a new internal software program used to track stenographic services. The FTC also is clarifying that the information maintained in this system can include a deponent's home address and that this type of information is destroyed by the FTC when no longer needed.

II. Federal Trade Commission Personnel Systems of Records

FTC-II-1 (General Personnel Records—FTC),

FTC-II-2 (Unofficial Personnel Records—FTC),

FTC-II-3 (Workers' Compensation—FTC),

FTC-II-4 (Employment Application-Related Records—FTC),

FTC-II-8 (Employee Adverse Action and Disciplinary Records—FTC),

FTC-II-10 (Employee Health Care Records—FTC), and

FTC-II-12 (e-Train Learning Management System—FTC).

These SORNs relate to FTC employee records. The Human Resources Management Office (HRMO) is now the Human Capital Management Office (HCMO). We have revised the titles of system managers and other references in these SORNs to reflect this change. For FTC-II-2 (Unofficial Personnel Records—FTC), we also have clarified the retention and disposal section.

FTC-II-7 (Ethics Program Records-FTC). This SORN covers financial disclosure forms, ethics agreements and other records related to conflict of interest determinations. This SORN also pertains to other ethics records about individual FTC employees, including material addressing outside activities, post-employment, and travel reimbursement concerns. The Office of Government Ethics (OGE) has published two Government-wide SORNs that together cover records in this FTC system. See OGE/GOVT-1 (Public Financial Disclosure Reports and Other Name-Retrieved Ethics Program Records), OGE/GOVT-2 (Confidential Financial Disclosure Reports). See 68 FR 3098, 24744 (2003). We have revised FTC-II-7 to make it more consistent with the OGE SORNs.

FTC-II-11 (Personnel Security, Identity Management, and Access Control Records System—FTC). This SORN covers security-related records for determining the eligibility of FTC employees or other authorized individuals (e.g., on-site contractors) for access to FTC facilities and resources, as well as records related to granting and controlling such access. The FTC has clarified that those materials obtained from the Office of Personnel Management's Federal Investigative Services (OPM-FIS) remain the property of OPM-FIS and are subject to that agency's SORN.[2]

III. Federal Trade Commission Financial Systems of Records

FTC-III-1 (Personnel Payroll System—FTC). This SORN covers payroll processing and retirement records for FTC employees. As noted above, the Human Resources Management Office (HRMO) is now the Human Capital Management Office (HCMO), and the FTC has revised the title of the system manager for this system to reflect this change.

FTC-III-3 (Financial Management System—FTC). This SORN covers FTC records of payments or reimbursements for travel by its employees and others and payments for the acquisition of other goods or services. The FTC has revised FTC-III-3 to update the hyperlink to the related SORN published by Department of the Interior (DOI), which processes and manages financial data for the FTC. See DOI-91 (Federal Financial System), 78 FR 55284 (Sept. 10, 2013).

IV. FTC Correspondence Systems of Records

FTC-IV-1 (Consumer Information System—FTC). This SORN covers consumer complaints and information Start Printed Page 9461requests received from consumers, as well as identity theft complaints. We have revised the SORN's exemption language to incorporate the pre-existing (k)(2) exemption as set out in 16 CFR 4.13(m)(2) applicable to identity theft records. This merely corrects an inadvertent omission in the 2008 SORN update and republication, rather than establishing any new exemption.[3]

VII. FTC Miscellaneous Systems of Records

FTC-VII-2 (Employee Locator (STAFFID) System—FTC). This SORN tracks and locates employees, contractors, volunteers or others (e.g., students) working for or at the FTC. The FTC is updating the system manager entry to Assistant Director for Infrastructure Operations, Office of the Chief Information Officer.

FTC-VII-3 (Computer Systems User Identification and Access Records—FTC). This SORN covers records that the FTC maintains on those who have access to FTC computer systems in order to monitor and control the usage of such systems. The FTC is revising this SORN to delete the Assistant Chief Information Officer, Operations Assurance, Office of Information and Technology Management, as one of the system managers. The FTC is also updating the title of the remaining system manager, who is the Assistant Director for Infrastructure Operations, Office of the Chief Information Officer.

FTC-VII-4 (Call Detail Records—FTC). This SORN covers records that the FTC maintains on telephone system usage by FTC employees, contractors and other individuals who work at the FTC. Due to an internal reorganization of the agency's information and technology resources, the FTC is revising this SORN to delete the Assistant Chief Information Officer, Customer Services, Office of Information and Technology Management as one of the system managers. The FTC is updating the title of the remaining system manager, who is the Assistant Director for Infrastructure Operations, Office of the Chief Information Officer.

FTC-VII-7 (Information Technology Service Ticket System—FTC). This SORN tracks and fulfills requests made by employees or other individuals for building repairs, maintenance or other administrative services. The FTC is clarifying that this system's purpose also includes registering, tracking and controlling usage of FTC desktop and mobile telephones and other FTC telecommunication devices by individual users. Additionally, the categories of records includes individual users of any of these types of devices. Due to an internal reorganization of the agency's information and technology resources, the FTC is revising this SORN to delete the Assistant Chief Information Officer, Customer Services, Office of Information and Technology Management as one of the system managers. The FTC is updating the title for the existing system manager, who is the Assistant Director for Applications, Office of the Chief Information Officer.

Appendix III (FTC System Locations). This Appendix includes the addresses of all FTC facilities, including its satellite building in Washington, DC, and regional offices. It also explains that the FTC may maintain records in other leased facilities or, in certain cases, may have contractors operate or maintain Privacy Act record systems off-site. The FTC is updating the list of these facilities to include changes to satellite locations in the Washington, DC, area. The entire appendix as revised is set out below.
