AGENCY:

Office of the Secretary of Defense, DoD.

ACTION:

Notice to alter a System of Records.

SUMMARY:

The Office of the Secretary of Defense proposes to alter a system of records, DSCA 04, entitled “Adjunct Faculty Information Database.” The Defense Institute of International Legal Studies (DIILS) supports U.S. foreign policy and national security policy with rule of law training and education focused on human rights, international humanitarian law, and the law of armed conflict.

The purpose of the Adjunct Faculty Information Database is to collect supplied information from qualified adjunct faculty members to make preparations for their overseas travel assignments as well as maintain a record of their qualifications for participation in future training programs. This data will also be used as a resource for future travel and training assignments, as a record of adjunct assignments and a basis to identify training requirements for the adjunct faculty.

DATES:

Comments will be accepted on or before October 11, 2016. 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.
