AGENCY:

Office of the Secretary of Defense, DoD.

ACTION:

Notice to add a System of Records.

SUMMARY:

Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-130, notice is hereby given that the Office of the Secretary of Defense proposes to add a new system of records, DSCA 06, entitled “Defense Security Assistance Management System (DSAMS).” The system will facilitate case development, implementation, and management of the Foreign Military Sales and International Military Education and Training (IMET) Programs. The DSAMS Training Module (DSAMS-TM) is used to manage training activities of individuals who have been selected by the U.S. government to attend various Department of Defense (DoD) security cooperation training courses.Start Printed Page 62485

In establishing this system of records, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency reviewed the safeguards established for the system to ensure they are compliant with the DoD's requirements and are appropriate to the sensitivity of the information stored within the system. Any specific routine uses have been reviewed to ensure the minimum amount of personally identifiable information is provided to other federal agencies requesting emergency language support to facilitate U.S. efforts on the war on terrorism or in furtherance of national security objectives.
