SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Office of the Secretary of Defense proposes to modify a system of records subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a. The GlobalNET Outreach and Collaboration Platform (DSCA 02) is a web based information technology platform to improve international partner outreach and collaboration efforts in a federated environment. The system collects information on students in order to allow them to share information with peers, faculty, and regional center personnel. GlobalNET is the official DSCA system for performing alumni outreach, facilitating alumnus/professor communication and peer-to-peer communications (or social networking).

As a result of reviewing this system of records notice, the DSCA proposes to modify this system by updating the following sections: Categories of individuals, categories of records, authorities, routine uses, retention and disposal, notification procedure, record access procedures, and record source categories. This notice also reflects changes to ensure compliance with Office of Management and Budget Circular A-108.

The OSD notices for systems of records subject to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended, have been published in the Federal Register and are available from the address in FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT or at the Defense Privacy and Civil Liberties Division website at https://defense.gov/​privacy.

The proposed system report, as required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, was submitted on February 27, 2018 to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs, and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
