SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Department of the Treasury and the United States Mint are proposing to establish a new system of records entitled, “Treasury/United States Mint .014—Denver Public Tour and Outreach Reservation System.”

The United States Mint is establishing the United States Mint Denver Public Tour and Outreach Reservation System of Records to allow individual members of the public and federal employees to contact the United States Mint to request guided public tours of the United States Mint at Denver facility for themselves or on behalf of a group (Tour(s)), and to request a visit and presentation by United States Mint staff on the Bureau's history, mission, and coin-making process on behalf of a group in the extended Denver metropolitan area (Outreach Program(s)).

System features are intended to enhance the process of registration and communication between the United States Mint and the individual requesting a Tour or Outreach Program (Requester), and to allow the United States Mint to schedule and manage the arrangements including any necessary cancellations.

All Requesters must provide scheduling and contact information. For Outreach Programs and larger Tours, Requesters must also provide the name of the participant group or school (if any), group size, age range, and grade. Outreach Program Requesters are additionally required to provide site location and information on how they learned of the program, and may request topics to be covered by the presenter. All Requesters may provide information on special requirements (such as a participant needing a reasonable accommodation) for themselves or their groups, and may (but are not required to) name or otherwise identify any individual participants having special requirements.

Authority for this system derives from 31 U.S.C. 5131 and 31 U.S.C. 5136. In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), a report of this proposed new system of records has been provided to the Office of Management and Budget and to Congress.

Treasury/United States Mint .014

System name:

Treasury/United States Mint .014.

System location:

United States Mint, Denver facility, 320 West Colfax Avenue, Denver, Colorado 80204.

Categories of individuals covered by the system:

  • Tour Requesters: Individual members of the public or federal employees who contact the United States Mint and request public tours of the United States Mint at Denver facility.
  • Outreach Program Requesters: Individual members of the public or federal employees who contact the United States Mint and request Outreach Programs presentations by United States Mint staff on the Bureau's history, mission and coin-making process on behalf of a group meeting applicable size and location criteria in the extended Denver metropolitan area.
  • Individual members of the public or federal employees other than Requesters, whose name and other personal information a Requester voluntarily provides to identify a participant in the Tour or Outreach Program the Requester arranges.

Categories of records in the system:

  • Name of Requester;
  • Information about a Requester's special requirements, including information to allow the United States Mint to provide a reasonable accommodation for Requester's disability;
  • Names of other Tour or Outreach Program participants volunteered by a Requester;
  • Information about participants' special requirements, including information to allow the United States Mint to provide a reasonable accommodation for a participant with a disability;
  • Requester's email address, telephone, fax number, and postal address;
  • Outreach Program site address, if applicable;
  • Participant group name, and school name, if applicable;
  • Source of Outreach Requester's awareness of the Outreach Program;
  • Outreach Program topics requested.

Authority for maintenance of the system:

31 U.S.C. 5131; 31 U.S.C. 5136.

Purpose(s):

The purpose of this system is to allow the United States Mint the ability to work with Requesters to schedule, confirm, plan and manage arrangements for Tours and Outreach Programs, understand the needs of participants, and allow the Bureau to manage its Denver facility visitor volume, interests, and safety. It also provides the United States Mint with contact information to notify Requesters of schedule changes, and to send an optional customer satisfaction survey invitation containing a link to the survey, allowing the participating public to provide feedback that enables the Bureau to continually improve its Tour and Outreach Program services. Surveys do not solicit personal information and results are not stored in the system.

The United States Mint at Denver offers guided public Tours of its facility to members of the public, including federal employees. For groups (such as schools, clubs, civic groups, and other organizations whose members may be unable to travel to the facility), the United States Mint provides the opportunity to request an Outreach Program visit and presentation, provided these groups meet certain size and location criteria. Both Tours and Outreach Programs require advance reservations. The system will provide an enhanced process by which individuals can request, schedule, and manage Tour and Outreach Program arrangements, and the Bureau can contact Requesters to confirm, reschedule, or cancel Tours or Outreach Programs. The system will also allow Requesters to note any special requirements (including requests for reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities).
