SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) Privacy Office responsible for these systems of records was relocated from Boyers, Pennsylvania to Fort Knox, Kentucky. The address change to the Record Access and Notification Procedures sections of the SORNs will enable individuals to determine if information about themselves is contained in the system and to request access to their records in a timely manner. The System Location address for DMDC 11 DoD was also changed to the Fort Knox address.

DMDC 11 DoD, titled “Investigative Records Repository,” is an automated data system used to securely store, and disseminate Personnel Security Investigations to other Government agencies with investigative or adjudicative authority. To ensure the acceptance or retention of persons with access to classified DoD information, installations or facilities, or granting individuals, including those employed in defense industry, access to classified DoD information, installation, or facility is clearly consistent with national security.

DMDC 12 DoD, titled “Joint Personnel Adjudication System (JPAS),” is a DoD enterprise automated system for personnel security, providing a common, comprehensive medium to record, document, and identify personnel security actions within the Department including submitting adverse information, verification of clearance status (to include grants of interim clearances), requesting investigations, and supporting continuous evaluation activities.

DMDC 13 DoD, titled “Defense Central Index of Investigations (DCII),” is a central database of DoD conducted or sponsored investigations used by DoD law enforcement activities, personnel security adjudicators, and in continuous evaluation of individuals. Also, the system aggregates the results of National Agency Check (NAC) information prior to February 2005 (NAC information after this period is maintained by the Office of Personnel Management as well as other Federal investigative agencies). Records document investigations on file with DoD agencies and the United States Coast Guard. Also, the database provides data query, data management and reporting capabilities on data pertaining to the existence and physical location of criminal and personnel security investigative files.

DMDC 24 DoD, titled “Defense Information System for Security (DISS),” is a DoD enterprise information system for personnel security, providing a common, comprehensive medium to request, record, document, and identify personnel security actions within the Department including: Determinations of eligibility and access to classified information, national security, suitability and/or fitness for employment, and Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 determination for personal identity verification to gain access to government facilities and systems, submitting adverse information, verification of investigation Start Printed Page 49102and/or adjudicative status, support of continuous evaluation and insider threat detection, prevention, and mitigation activities. DISS consists of two applications, the Joint Verification System (JVS) and the Case Adjudication Tracking System (CATS). The DoD Adjudicative Community uses CATS to record eligibility determinations. JVS is used by DoD Security Managers and Industry Facility Security Officers for the purpose of verifying eligibility, recording access determinations, submitting incidents for subsequent adjudication, and visit requests from the field (worldwide).

The OSD is modifying four systems of records by amending the Record Access Procedures and Notification Procedures to reflect a new physical address. The new Record Access and Notification Procedures address for all four SORNs is Department of the Army, Defense Manpower Data Center, 1600 Spearhead Division Avenue, Department 548, Fort Knox, KY 40122-5504. The System Location address for one SORN, DMDC 11 DoD, was also updated to this Fort Knox, KY address.

The OSD notices for systems of records subject to the Privacy Act of 1974, 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, Civil Liberties, and Transparency Division website at http://dpcld.defense.gov.

The proposed systems reports, as required by of the Privacy Act, as amended, were submitted on June 21, 2019, to the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to Section 6 to OMB Circular No. A-108, “Federal Agency Responsibilities for Review, Reporting, and Publication under the Privacy Act,” revised December 23, 2016 (December 23, 2016, 81 FR 94424).
