AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Postal Service proposes that mailers use two bands to secure all bundles of presorted rate flat-size mail and irregular parcels that are not shrinkwrapped.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bill Chatfield at 202–268–7278. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We are proposing a revision to Mailing Standards of the United States Postal Service, Domestic Mail Manual (DMM) that would require mailers to use at least two bands—one around the length and one around the girth—when only banding is used to secure bundles of flat-size and irregular parcel mailpieces. ‘‘Bundle integrity’’—the ability of bundles to remain intact—is crucial for our new, high-speed Automated Package Processing System (APPS). Bundles with only one band tend to curl up and allow mailpieces to escape the bundle. When these or other bundles break open, we lose the value of mailers’ presort, and we have to handle individual pieces manually. Manual E:\FR\FM\02NOP1.SGM 02NOP1

of small entities because they are concerned only with the 
administration of Privacy Act systems of records within the Department 
of Defense.

    It has been determined that Privacy Act rules for the Department of

Defense is necessary and consistent with 5 U.S.C. 552a, known as the 
Privacy Act of 1974.

Section 202, Public Law 104-4, ``Unfunded Mandates Reform Act''

    It has been determined that Privacy Act rulemaking for the 
Department of Defense does not involve a Federal mandate that may 
result in the expenditure by State, local and tribal governments, in 
the aggregate, or by the private sector, of $100 million or more and 
that such rulemaking will not significantly or uniquely affect small 
governments.

Executive Order 13132, ``Federalism''

    It has been determined that Privacy Act rules for the Department of 
Defense do not have federalism implications. The rules do not have 
substantial direct effects on the States, on the relationship between

and responsibilities among the various levels of government.

Sec.  317.7  Exemptions.

    All systems of records maintained by DCAA will be exempt from the 
requirements of 5 U.S.C. 552a(d) and (e)(4)(H) pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 
552a(k)(1) to the extent that the system contains any information 
properly classified under Executive Order 12958, that is required by 
the Executive Order to be kept secret in the interest of national 
defense or foreign policy. This exemption, which may be applicable to 
parts of all systems of records, is necessary since certain record
