SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Introduction

The Privacy Act (5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4) and (11)) requires the Department to publish in the Federal Register this notice of an altered system of records. The Department's regulations implementing the Privacy Act are contained in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) in 34 CFR part 5b.

The Privacy Act applies to any record about an individual that is maintained in a system of records from which individually identifying information is retrieved by a unique identifier associated with each individual, such as a name or social security number (SSN). The information about each individual is called a “record,” and the system, whether manual or computer-based, is called a “system of records.”

The Privacy Act requires each agency to publish notices of systems of records in the Federal Register and to prepare and send reports to the Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, OMB whenever the agency publishes a new or altered system of records. Each agency is also required to send copies of the report to the Chair of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and the Chair of the House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. These reports are included to permit an evaluation of the probable effect of the proposal on the privacy rights of individuals.

Since the last publication of the FOIA and PA Tracking System of records in the Federal Register on June 4, 1999 (64 FR 30106, 30119-22), a number of changes have been identified that are needed to update and accurately depict the current state of the system of records.

The changes in the attached notice for the FOIA and PA Tracking System are numerous.

First, the system location has been updated to reflect the relocation of the Department's data center; to change its numbering from 18-04-02 to 18-05-20, and change the system location from the Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) to the Office of Management (OM).

Second, the paragraph in the notice describing the categories of individuals covered by the system is being updated to include individuals who have submitted requests for FOIA administrative appeals; individuals whose requests for records have been referred to the Department by other agencies; individuals who are the subject of such requests, appeals; and/or personnel assigned to handle such requests and appeals.

Third, the paragraph in the notice describing the categories of records contained in the system originally stated that copies of requested records were not maintained in the system. This notice is updating the categories of records in the system to state that copies of requested records are maintained in the system. In addition, the categories of records in the system have been updated to include the following records and related correspondence on individuals: requester's name, address, telephone number, email address, amount of fees paid and payment delinquencies, if any; the original requests and administrative appeals, responses to such requests and appeals, all related memoranda, correspondence, notes, and other related or supporting documentation, summary of log, and in some instances, copies of requested records and records under administrative appeal.

Fourth, the routine uses of records maintained in the system have been updated and two new routine uses will be added.

The Department proposes to revise routine use (3)(a)(iii) “Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Disclosures” to permit the Department to disclose certain records from this system to the parties described in routine use paragraphs (3)(b) “Disclosure to the Department of Justice (DOJ),” (3)(c) “Administrative Disclosures,” and (3)(d) “Parties, Counsel, Representatives, and Witnesses” for any Department employee in his or her individual capacity if the DOJ has been requested to provide or arrange for representation of the employee. This proposed routine use is compatible with this system of records because it will allow the Department to disclose records from this system of records as needed to obtain legal representation for Department employees.

The Department proposes to revise routine use (6) “Labor Organization Disclosure” to permit the Department to disclose records from this system to an arbitrator to resolve disputes under a negotiated grievance procedure or to officials of labor organizations recognized under 5 U.S.C. chapter 71 when relevant and necessary to their duties of exclusive representation. This proposed routine use is compatible with this system of records because it will permit the Department to fulfill its statutory obligation to allow a labor organization to perform its duties of exclusive representation and it will permit the disclosure of records to arbitrators as needed to resolve disputes pursuant to negotiated grievance procedures.

The Department also proposes to revise routine use (7) “Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and Privacy Act Advice Disclosure” to permit the Department to disclose records from this system to the Department of Justice and OMB if the Department concludes that disclosure is desirable or necessary in determining whether particular records are required to be disclosed under the FOIA or the Privacy Act. This proposed routine use is compatible with the purposes of this system because it will permit the Department to obtain counsel necessary to ensure that individual privacy rights are protected and FOIA requirements are met and followed.

The Department proposes to add a new, routine use (13) “Disclosure in the Course of Responding to a Breach of Data” to permit the Department to disclose records from this system to appropriate agencies, entities, and persons when: (a) The Department suspects or has confirmed that the security or confidentiality of information in the system of records has been compromised; (b) the Department has determined that as a result for the suspected or confirmed compromise there is a risk of harm to economic or property interests, identity theft or fraud, or harm to the security or integrity of this system or other systems or programs (whether maintained by the Department or another agency or entity) that rely upon the compromised information; and (c) the disclosure made to such agencies, entities, and persons is reasonably necessary to assist in connection with the Department's efforts to respond to the suspected or confirmed compromise and prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm. This proposed routine use is compatible with the purposes of the system because it will permit the Department to take appropriate steps in response to a breach of personally identifiable information that is maintained in this system and to abide by the requirements relating to a breach of personally identifiable information that are set forth in OMB Memorandum 07-16 “Safeguarding Against and Responding to the Breach of Personally Identifiable Information.”

The Department proposes to add a new, routine use (14) “Disclosure to National Archives Records Administration, Office of Government Information Services (OGIS),” to the extent necessary to fulfill its responsibilities in 5 U.S.C. 552(h), to Start Printed Page 30673review administrative agency policies, procedures and compliance with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and to facilitate OGIS' offering of mediation services to resolve disputes between persons making FOIA requests and administrative agencies.

Fifth, the policies and practices for storing, retrieving, accessing, retaining, and disposing of records in the system have been updated to include storage of data in a computer database, because the original FOIA and PA Tracking System notice omitted this. Further, the retention and disposal policy has been updated to comply with the General Records Schedule (GRS) approved by NARA.

Sixth, the description of safeguards has been updated to include additional security measures that have been put in place.

Finally, the Department updated the description of the system managers and their addresses to reflect minor changes in addresses.
