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 07, entitled “Security Assistance Network (SAN).” The SAN is the international security cooperation (SC) database and communications network that provides the Security Cooperation Offices (SCOs) and others in the SC community access to SC financial and logistics management systems, information via various bulletin boards, and a library system for large files. The SAN provides the primary interface for the input and output of data from all military departments, SCOs, and International Military Student Offices (IMSOs). Most importantly, the SAN is where the SCO training manager obtains data used for the Security Cooperation Training Management System (SC-TMS). All SCOs and IMSOs must use the SAN and its components to perform their assigned SC training management functions.

DATES:

Comments will be accepted on or before October 24, 2016. This proposed action will be effective the day following the end of the comment period unless comments are received which result in a contrary determination.
