E7–3369 Filed 2–26–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4310–W7–P DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR Bureau of Indian Affairs Privacy Act of 1974, as Amended; Amendment of an Existing System of Records Bureau of Indian Affairs, Interior. ACTION: Proposed amendment of an existing system of records. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Under the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552a), the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) is issuing public notice of our intent to change an existing Privacy Act system of records notices entitled Interior BIA–04 ‘‘Indian Land Records,’’ published at 48 FR 41098 (September 13, 1983). BIA proposes to: (1) Update the information on the location of the records and the technology used to store and retrieve records; (2) identify new information that will be included in the system of records; (3) clearly state the current routine uses of the records by organizations and individuals outside of the Department of the Interior (DOI); and (4) expand the routine uses of such information to include the disclosure of names and mailing addresses of owners of trust and restricted lands, among other information, to certain statutorily defined categories of persons. BIA is accomplishing these changes in part by updating its system of records through conversion to a new application, Trust Asset and Accounting Management System (TAAMS), which has or will replace several BIA legacy systems such as the Land Records Information System (LRIS) and Integrated Records Management System (IRMS). DATES: The proposed new system of records will become effective without further notice on April 9, 2007, unless comments received result in a contrary determination. Under 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(11), the public is provided a 30day period in which to comment on the agency’s intended use of the information in the system of records. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB), in its Circular A–130, requires an additional 10-day period in which E:\FR\FM\27FEN1.SGM 27FEN1 cprice-sewell on PROD1PC62 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 38 / Tuesday, February 27, 2007 / Notices the OMB may comment (for a total of 40 days in which to make these comments). BIA will publish a notice if changes are made based on review of comments received. ADDRESSES: Any persons interested in commenting on this proposed amendment may do so by submitting comments in writing to the Deputy Director, Office of Trust Services, Bureau of Indian Affairs, 1849 C Street, NW., MS 4513–MIB, Washington DC 20240, or fax to (202) 208–2549. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information regarding ‘‘Indian Land Records, BIA–04’’ contact Arch Wells, Deputy Director, Office of Trust Services, Bureau of Indian Affairs, 1849 C Street, NW., MS 4513—MIB, Washington DC 20240 at (202) 208– 5831. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice is published pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4)) and is in exercise of authority delegated by the Secretary of the Interior to the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary— Indian Affairs in 209 DM 8.1. This notice amends the Privacy Act System of Records entitled BIA–04: Indian Land Records. The purpose of the amendment is to reflect the modernization of the title and trust systems with the development of a new electronic system for managing Indian assets and land records. TAAMS will replace several legacy systems that were used to manage Indian trust assets: LRIS, which supports the land title function by providing land title-related information, such as ownership and encumbrances; and IRMS, which supports the land resource management function and contains information on Indians, leases (e.g., pasture, range, timber, mineral, and mining leases), land ownership, oil and gas royalties, and trust fund accounts. TAAMS integrates the two legacy systems to reduce duplication of information and support all land title and resource management functions. TAAMS provides up-to-date legal and beneficial title ownership and encumbrance information for all Indian lands and resources, including automated calculation of fractional interests and automated chain-of-title processes and information. TAAMS users will be allowed to access, create, and modify records in the BIA database for land ownership, contracts and leases, and beneficial owners. Until full implementation of TAAMS, IRMS and the Royalty Distribution and Reporting System (RDRS) will be the official automated systems for income allocations. TAAMS, IRMS, and RDRS will include: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:22 Feb 26, 2007 Jkt 211001 (a) A legal land description, chain-oftitle history, current ownership, including title and beneficial ownership, and resource management classification for all land held in trust or restricted status by the Federal Government for the benefit of Indian tribes and individual Indians; (b) Any encumbrances against the title to land; (c) The name, address, BIA identification number (assigned by BIA in TAAMS), and Social Security Number (Federal Identification number) of each Indian land owner; (d) The name, address, and Social Security Number of each person who has a permit, lease, contract, right-ofway or other legal instrument approved by the Secretary of the Interior that allows such person to use the trust or restricted land or to extract renewable or nonrenewable resources from such land; (e) The name, address, and Federal taxpayer identification number of any company that has a permit, lease, contract, right-of-way or other legal instrument approved by the Secretary of the Interior that allows such company to use the trust or restricted land or to extract renewable or nonrenewable resources from such land; (f) The term of the permit, lease, contract, right-of-way or other legal instrument; and (g) The trust income collected and distributed for such permit, lease, contract, right-of-way or other legal instrument. In addition to expanding the information maintained in the system of records, changes to existing routine uses are made to better clarify instances when the release of information may be made to legal and law enforcement entities. Additionally, changes to existing routine uses authorize the release of names and mailing addresses of individuals owning an interest in trust or restricted land, information on the location of the parcel, and the percentage of undivided interest owned by each individual, upon written request, to the following statutorily defined categories of persons: (1) Other owners of interests in trust or restricted lands within the same reservation; (2) The tribe that exercises jurisdiction over the land where the parcel is located or any person who is eligible for membership in that tribe; and (3) Any person that is leasing, using, or consolidating, or is applying to lease, use, or consolidate, such trust or restricted land, or the interest in trust or restricted lands. PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8773 The purpose of these revisions is to enhance the ability of individual Indians to realize economic benefit from their land by simplifying the leasing or contracting process, and to assist and encourage the consolidation of land ownership.

DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR

Bureau of Indian Affairs


Privacy Act of 1974, as Amended; Amendment of an Existing System 
of Records

AGENCY: Bureau of Indian Affairs, Interior.

ACTION: Proposed amendment of an existing system of records.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Under the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (5 U.S.C. 552a), the 
Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) is issuing public notice of our intent 
to change an existing Privacy Act system of records notices entitled 
Interior BIA-04 ``Indian Land Records,'' published at 48 FR 41098 
(September 13, 1983). BIA proposes to: (1) Update the information on 
the location of the records and the technology used to store and 
retrieve records; (2) identify new information that will be included in 
the system of records; (3) clearly state the current routine uses of 
the records by organizations and individuals outside of the Department 
of the Interior (DOI); and (4) expand the routine uses of such 
information to include the disclosure of names and mailing addresses of 
owners of trust and restricted lands, among other information, to 
certain statutorily defined categories of persons.
    BIA is accomplishing these changes in part by updating its system 
of records through conversion to a new application, Trust Asset and 
Accounting Management System (TAAMS), which has or will replace several 
BIA legacy systems such as the Land Records Information System (LRIS) 
and Integrated Records Management System (IRMS).

DATES: The proposed new system of records will become effective without 
further notice on April 9, 2007, unless comments received result in a 
contrary determination. Under 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(11), the public is 
provided a 30-day period in which to comment on the agency's intended 
use of the information in the system of records. The Office of 
Management and Budget (OMB), in its Circular A-130, requires an 
additional 10-day period in which

[[Page 8773]]

the OMB may comment (for a total of 40 days in which to make these 
comments). BIA will publish a notice if changes are made based on 
review of comments received.

ADDRESSES: Any persons interested in commenting on this proposed 
amendment may do so by submitting comments in writing to the Deputy 
Director, Office of Trust Services, Bureau of Indian Affairs, 1849 C 
Street, NW., MS 4513-MIB, Washington DC 20240, or fax to (202) 208-
2549.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For information regarding ``Indian 
Land Records, BIA-04'' contact Arch Wells, Deputy Director, Office of 
Trust Services, Bureau of Indian Affairs, 1849 C Street, NW., MS 4513--
MIB, Washington DC 20240 at (202) 208-5831.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice is published pursuant to the 
Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(4)) and is in exercise of 
authority delegated by the Secretary of the Interior to the Principal 
Deputy Assistant Secretary--Indian Affairs in 209 DM 8.1. This notice 
amends the Privacy Act System of Records entitled BIA-04: Indian Land 
Records. The purpose of the amendment is to reflect the modernization 
of the title and trust systems with the development of a new electronic 
system for managing Indian assets and land records. TAAMS will replace 
several legacy systems that were used to manage Indian trust assets: 
LRIS, which supports the land title function by providing land title-
related information, such as ownership and encumbrances; and IRMS, 
which supports the land resource management function and contains 
information on Indians, leases (e.g., pasture, range, timber, mineral, 
and mining leases), land ownership, oil and gas royalties, and trust 
fund accounts. TAAMS integrates the two legacy systems to reduce 
duplication of information and support all land title and resource 
management functions. TAAMS provides up-to-date legal and beneficial 
title ownership and encumbrance information for all Indian lands and 
resources, including automated calculation of fractional interests and 
automated chain-of-title processes and information. TAAMS users will be 
allowed to access, create, and modify records in the BIA database for 
land ownership, contracts and leases, and beneficial owners. Until full 
implementation of TAAMS, IRMS and the Royalty Distribution and 
Reporting System (RDRS) will be the official automated systems for 
income allocations. TAAMS, IRMS, and RDRS will include:
    (a) A legal land description, chain-of-title history, current 
ownership, including title and beneficial ownership, and resource 
management classification for all land held in trust or restricted 
status by the Federal Government for the benefit of Indian tribes and 
individual Indians;
    (b) Any encumbrances against the title to land;
    (c) The name, address, BIA identification number (assigned by BIA 
in TAAMS), and Social Security Number (Federal Identification number) 
of each Indian land owner;
    (d) The name, address, and Social Security Number of each person 
who has a permit, lease, contract, right-of-way or other legal 
instrument approved by the Secretary of the Interior that allows such 
person to use the trust or restricted land or to extract renewable or 
nonrenewable resources from such land;
    (e) The name, address, and Federal taxpayer identification number 
of any company that has a permit, lease, contract, right-of-way or 
other legal instrument approved by the Secretary of the Interior that 
allows such company to use the trust or restricted land or to extract 
renewable or nonrenewable resources from such land;
    (f) The term of the permit, lease, contract, right-of-way or other 
legal instrument; and
    (g) The trust income collected and distributed for such permit, 
lease, contract, right-of-way or other legal instrument.
    In addition to expanding the information maintained in the system 
of records, changes to existing routine uses are made to better clarify 
instances when the release of information may be made to legal and law 
enforcement entities. Additionally, changes to existing routine uses 
authorize the release of names and mailing addresses of individuals 
owning an interest in trust or restricted land, information on the 
location of the parcel, and the percentage of undivided interest owned 
by each individual, upon written request, to the following statutorily 
defined categories of persons:
    (1) Other owners of interests in trust or restricted lands within 
the same reservation;
    (2) The tribe that exercises jurisdiction over the land where the 
parcel is located or any person who is eligible for membership in that 
tribe; and
    (3) Any person that is leasing, using, or consolidating, or is 
applying to lease, use, or consolidate, such trust or restricted land, 
or the interest in trust or restricted lands.
    The purpose of these revisions is to enhance the ability of 
individual Indians to realize economic benefit from their land by 
simplifying the leasing or contracting process, and to assist and 
encourage the consolidation of land ownership.

Routine uses of records maintained in the system, including categories 
of users and the purposes of such uses:
    The purpose of TAAMS is to provide BIA and Indian tribal officials 
nationwide access to trust asset data (including land title records) 
and trust asset management tools. The management tools allow TAAMS 
users to access, create, and modify records in the BIA database for 
land ownership, contracts and leases, and beneficial owners. TAAMS is 
replacing the existing legacy system Land Records Information System 
(LRIS), among other BIA-developed systems. TAAMS interfaces and 
exchanges data with the DOI system TFAS, and is proposed to interface 
with ProTrac. TFAS, which is owned by the Office of the Special Trustee 
for American Indians (OST) through a private contractor, provides TAAMS 
with files containing names, addresses and other personal data on 
individuals who receive payments from OST for natural resources, such 
as gas and oil, produced on their land. TAAMS data are not shared with 
any system outside DOI or its agents.
    DOI, and its agents, including private contractors, and tribes that 
compact, contract, or enter into cooperative agreements with the 
Department use the records to:
    (a) Identify the ownership interests, including the name of Indian 
owners and percentage interest in Indian lands held in trust or 
restricted status;
    (b) Record land conveyance and encumbrance and lien transactions;
    (c) Determine beneficial rights to the land and resources;

[[Page 8775]]

    (d) Appropriately manage trust and restricted land and natural 
resources for the benefit of the Indian landowner;
    (e) Provide land statistics in support of budget and management 
initiatives; and
    (f) Answer beneficiary questions regarding land rights.

Disclosures of these records outside the Department of the Interior 
will be limited to:
    (1) Another Federal agency to enable that agency to respond to an 
inquiry by the individual to whom the record pertains.
    (2)(a) To any of the following entities or individuals, when the 
circumstances set forth in (b) are met:
    (i) The Department of Justice (DOJ);
    (ii) a court, adjudicative or other administrative body;
    (iii) a party in litigation before a court or adjudicative or 
administrative body; or
    (iv) any DOI employee acting in his or her individual capacity if 
DOI or DOJ has agreed to represent that employee or pay for private 
representation of the employee;
    (b) When:
    (i) One of the following is a party to the proceeding or has an 
interest in the proceeding:
    (A) DOI or any component of DOI;
    (B) Any DOI employee acting in his or her official capacity;
    (C) Any DOI employee acting in his or her individual capacity if 
DOI or DOJ has agreed to represent that employee or pay for private 
representation of the employee;
    (D) The United States, when DOJ determines that DOI is likely to be 
affected by the proceeding; and
    (ii) DOI deems the disclosure to be:
    (A) Relevant and necessary to the proceeding; and
    (B) Compatible with the purposes for which the records were 
compiled.
    (3) To a congressional office in response to a written inquiry an 
individual covered by the system has made to the congressional office 
about him or herself.
    (4) To an official of another Federal agency to provide information 
needed in the performance of official duties related to reconciling or 
reconstructing data files, in support of the functions for which the 
records were collected and maintained.
    (5) To representatives of the National Archives and Records 
Administration to conduct records management inspections under the 
authority of 44 U.S.C. 2903 and 2904.
    (6) The appropriate Federal, state, tribal, or local governmental 
agency that is responsible for investigating, prosecuting, enforcing or 
implementing a statute, rule, regulation, order or license, when DOI 
becomes aware of an indication of a violation or potential violation of 
the statute, rule, regulation, order or license.
    (7) To any of the following entities or individuals, when the 
entity or individual makes a written request for names or mailing 
addresses of owners of any interest in trust or restricted lands, and 
information on the location of the parcel and the percentage of 
undivided interest owned by each individual:
    (i) Other owners of interests in trust or restricted lands within 
the same reservation;
    (ii) The tribe that exercises jurisdiction over the land where the 
parcel is located or any person who is eligible for membership in that 
tribe; and
    (iii) Any person that is leasing, using, or consolidating, or is 
applying to lease, use, or consolidate, such trust or restricted land 
or the interest in trust or restricted lands.
    (8) Indian tribes entering into a contract or compacts of real 
estate or title functions under the Indian Self-Determination and 
Education Assistance Act, as amended.

consumer reporting agency as defined in the Fair Credit Reporting Act 
(15 U.S.C. 1681a(f)) or the Federal Claims Collection Act of 1966 (31 
U.S.C. 3701(a)(3)).

Policies and practices for storing, retrieving, accessing, retaining, 
and disposing of records in the system:
Storage:
    Manual Records: Original title documents, title document copies, 
certified copies, and certifiable copies, are maintained at the Land 
Titles and Records Offices and other Land Titles and Records program 
offices, together with reports and certified reports of title documents 
and of land title and ownership and all transaction documents on files 
in support of the land or title documents.
    Electronic Records: Data extracted from such title documents about 
land owners, ownership, conveyances, encumbrances, valuation and 
income, are maintained on electronic media (e.g., tape, disk, CD Rom 
and other digital or electronic media.)

Retrievability:
    Information may be retrieved primarily by trained individuals 
possessing appropriate access querying the TAAMS database. Records are 
retrieved using either: (a) An identifier linked to a parcel; (b) an 
identifier for a property interest owner, such as name, Social Security 
Number, tribe, tribal enrollment, or census numbers; or (c) identifiers 
linked to encumbrances on ownership such as mortgages and rights-of-
way.

Safeguards:
    During business hours, paper records are maintained in areas 
accessible only by authorized personnel in a secured office environment 
and comply with the minimum DOI safeguard requirements for maintaining 
Privacy Act system of records under 43 CFR 2.51. Electronic records are 
accessible via a password from terminals located in attended offices 
and the data in those regards may be changed only by personnel with 
approved access. Electronic records comply with DOI and National 
Institute of Standards and Technology cyber security requirements. 
After business hours, buildings have security guards and/or secured 
doors, and all entrances are monitored by electronic surveillance 
equipment. A Privacy Impact Assessment is being completed for land 
title records files and TAAMS in accordance with the E-Government Act 
of 2002 and OMB requirements for new and amended information systems.

Retention and disposal:
    Records are permanently retained for historical index. Originals, 
copies and certified copies of Indian land records may be located at 
BIA regional and agency offices or at the archives in Lenexa, Kansas. 
The Office of Trust Records is currently working with BIA to prepare a 
schedule for retention and disposal of records in TAAMS.
