POLICIES AND PRACTICES FOR STORING, RETRIEVING, ACCESSING RETAINING, AND DISPOSING OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:

STORAGE:

Records are maintained on microfilm and in the computer system. Microfilm records are indexed by Document Locator Number, and the computer system lists these numbers for document retrieval from the microfilm records.

RETRIEVABILITY:

The system is indexed by Selective Service Number, but records can be located by searching for specific data.

SAFEGUARDS:

Measures that have been taken to prevent unauthorized disclosures of records are:

a. Records are maintained by authorized personnel only, who have been trained in the rules and regulations concerning disclosures of information; offices are locked when authorized personnel are not on duty, and are protected by an electronic security access system at all times.

b. Periodic security checks and other emergency planning.

c. Microfilm records transferred to a Federal Records Center for storage are boxed and taped; records in transit for temporary custody of another office are sealed.

d. Selective Service System employees access the application via customized user interface—access is controlled by user id and password credentials.

e. Records eligible for destruction are destroyed by maceration, shredding, burning or purging from the RCV database.

RETENTION AND DISPOSAL:

The copies are retained until no longer needed for reference purposes. Also, registration files are stored on hard drives/network storage.

2. The record copy of microfilm and computer database will be retained until the registrant reaches 85 years of age.
