ACTION: Notice of deletion of two systems of records.
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
 
SUMMARY: Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974, as 
amended (5 U.S.C. 552a), notice is hereby given that the Department of 
the Interior is deleting two systems of records managed by the Office 
of Surface Mining (OSM). The system of records entitled ``Net Worth 
Determination File--Interior/OSMRE-10'' and the system of records 
entitled ``Collection Management Information System (CMIS)--Interior/
OSMRE-11'' both have been re-examined and determined not to be subject 
to the Privacy Act.
 
DATES: These actions will be effective April 7, 1999.
 
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mark H. White, Team Leader, Fee 
Accounting and Collections Team, Office of Surface Mining, at (303) 
236-0330 X242.
 
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Earlier Privacy Act Compilations list the 
system of records with the prefix of ``OSMRE'' (e.g., OSMRE-10 and 
OSMRE-11) when originally published in the Federal Register. The prefix 
was later changed to ``OSM'' in subsequent records systems for 
convenience; the content of the systems of records was the same. The 
two system of records notices being deleted and the reasons for 
deletion are listed below.
    1. Interior, OSM-10, ``Net Worth Determination File,'' previously 
published in the Federal Register on February 14, 1991 (56 FR 6032). A 
Privacy Act review of OSM-10 has recently been completed by OSM. An 
opinion issued on August 30, 1988 by the General Counsel, Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB) affirmed OMB's 1975 guidelines, which 
interpreted the statutory term ``individual'' to exclude natural 
persons acting in an entrepreneurial capacity from coverage of the 
Privacy Act. A review of the Net Worth Determination File indicated 
that the records solely contain information about persons acting in an 
entrepreneurial capacity. Therefore, the system is not subject to the 
Privacy Act and the notice is being deleted from the Department's 
compilation of Privacy Act systems of records notices.
    2. Interior, OSM-11, ``Collection Management Information System 
(CMIS),'' previously published in the Federal Register on July 11, 1989 
(54 FR 29108). A Privacy Act review of OSM-11 has also been completed 
by OSM. An opinion issued on August 30, 1988 by the General Counsel, 
Office of Management and budget (OMB) affirmed OMB's 1975 guidelines, 
which interpreted the statutory term ``individual'' to exclude natural 
persons acting in an entrepreneurial capacity from coverage of the 
Privacy Act. A review of CMIS indicated that the records solely contain 
information about persons acting in an entrepreneurial capacity. 
Therefore, the system is not subject to the Privacy Act and the notice 
is being deleted from the Department's compilation of Privacy Act 
systems of records notices.
