Privacy Act of 1974—Revision of Systems of Records Notices
Pursuant to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a), as amended, notice is hereby given that the Department of the Interior proposes to revise existing notices describing records maintained by the National Park Service. Except as noted below, all changes being published are editorial in nature, and reflect organization changes and other minor administrative or system revisions which have occurred since the publication of the material in the Federal Register on April 11,1977 (42 FR 19072), March 6,1981 (46 FR 15587), and August 6,1982 (47 FR 34208). The revised system notices are published in their entirety below.
Substantive changes, being made to specific notices, are:
- 1. A compatible disclosure to consumer reporting agencies, as authorized by 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(12) and the Debt Collection Act of 1982 (Pub. L. 97-365), is being added to all the system notices published below except NPS-7 and NPS-21.
- 2. The system name for NPS-16 is changed from “Position and Manpower Reporting System” to “Organization - Roster, PAY/PERS” with no substantive change to the categories of records maintained on National Park Service employees.
- 3. A compatible routine disclosure to the general public is added to the notice for NPS-13, which pertains to concessioner records.
- 4. The notice describing law enforcement records, NPS-19, is revised to clarify that fingerprint information is included in the records, and a compatible routine disclosure to local and regional law enforcement agencies of fingerprint data has been added.
- 5. The notice describing NPS payroll records, NPS-20, is being revised to reflect the conversion of such records to the recently established Department-wide integrated payroll system (PAY/PERS). The notice also clarifies the routine disclosure of pertinent payroll information to insurance carriers, charitable institutions, and Federal and State agencies. Also added is a compatible routine disclosure to other Federal agencies for the purpose of collecting debts owed the Federal government through administrative or salary offset.
- 6. NPS-7 which pertains to historical files is revised to add a compatible disclosure to historical researchers.
5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(ll) requires that the public be provided a 30-day period in which to comment. Therefore, written comments on these proposed changes can be addressed to the Department Privacy Act Officer, Office of the Secretary (PIR), U.S, Department of the Interior. Washington, D.C. 20240.
Comments received on or before December 12,1983, will be considered. The system notices shall be effective as proposed without further notice at the end of the comment period, unless comments are received which would require a contrary determination.
Dated: November 3,1983.
