ADDRESSES: Address all comments to Mary Cahill, Management Analyst, Management and Planning Staff, Justice Management Division, Department of Justice, Washington, DC 20530, mary.e.cahill@usdoj.gov, facsimile number 202–307–1853. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mike Duffy, Deputy Chief Information Officer for E-Government on 202–514– 0507. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) serves as a central, electronic repository for all Federal rulemaking dockets, which may include, but are not necessarily limited to, Federal Register Notices of Proposed Rulemaking, Interim Rules, supporting materials such as scientific or economic analyses, and public comments, as well as nonrulemaking dockets, such as Notices, at the option of the agency or component. Although it is likely that, in the future, the Department will use the FDMS as its electronic record keeping system in accordance with the Federal Records Act, 44 U.S.C. 3301 et seq., for DOJ FDMS records, at present the permanent recordkeeping system for DOJ will remain a paper record keeping system. The FDMS is a system used by all Federal agencies that conduct rulemakings. The Department of Justice is publishing this new system of records notice for the E-Government, ERulemaking Initiative’s FDMS, in order to satisfy the applicable requirements of the Privacy Act. Previously the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a notice in the Federal Register (70 FR 15086, March 24, 2005) as the Program Manager for the Federalwide E-Rulemaking Initiative. This present notice provides information specific to the Department of Justice and its components and their use of electronic documents posted on, or PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 submitted to, Justice FDMS, and replaces the EPA notice for DOJ records in the FDMS. Members of the public who use FDMS to submit a comment on a DOJ Federal rulemaking may be asked to provide name and contact information (e-mail or mailing address). If that comment meets all requirements, as determined by the Department of Justice or the component publishing the rulemaking, the comment will be posted on the Internet at the FDMS Web site—http:// www.regulations.gov—for public viewing, and all the contents of the posted comment will be searchable. The FDMS is a system with full text search capability, that would include any name and identifying information submitted in the body of the comment. Names of individuals and organizations submitting comments using Justice FDMS will be posted on the http:// www.regulations.gov site with their respective comments for public viewing. Contact information (e-mail or mailing address) will not be available for public viewing, unless the submitter includes that information in the body of the comment. Under any circumstances, contact information will be retained by the agency or the component as part of this system. A component may choose not to post certain types of information contained in a comment submission, yet preserve the entire comment to be reviewed and considered as part of the rulemaking docket by the component. For example, comments containing material restricted from disclosure by Federal statute may not be publicly posted, but will be retained and evaluated/considered by the receiving component. The Justice FDMS contains information that is submitted to the Department in support of Federal rulemakings. The portion of this system that is covered by the Privacy Act includes the personally identifiable information submitted by commenters. In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a (r), the Department has provided a report to OMB and appropriate Members of Congress. Dated: March 5, 2007. Lee J.

SUMMARY: Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a) and Office 
of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular No. A-130, Appendix I, Federal 
Agency Responsibilities for Maintaining Records About Individuals, 
notice is hereby given that the Department of Justice (DOJ or Justice) 
is establishing the following new system of records: ``Justice Federal 
Docket Management System [Justice FDMS], DOJ-013.'' Justice FDMS allows 
the public to search, view, download, and comment on all Department of 
Justice rulemaking documents in one central online system. This system 
notice covers the various records maintained by all Department of 
Justice components pertaining to public comments under the Justice 
FDMS.

DATES: In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a (e)(4) and (11), the public is 
given a 30-day period in which to comment, and the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) which has oversight responsibility under the Privacy 
Act, requires a 40-day period in which to conclude its review of the 
system. Written comments must be postmarked, and electronic comments 
must be sent, on or before April 24, 2007.

ADDRESSES: Address all comments to Mary Cahill, Management Analyst, 
Management and Planning Staff, Justice Management Division, Department

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mike Duffy, Deputy Chief Information 
Officer for E-Government on 202-514-0507.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) 
serves as a central, electronic repository for all Federal rulemaking 
dockets, which may include, but are not necessarily limited to, Federal 
Register Notices of Proposed Rulemaking, Interim Rules, supporting 
materials such as scientific or economic analyses, and public comments, 
as well as non-rulemaking dockets, such as Notices, at the option of 
the agency or component. Although it is likely that, in the future, the 
Department will use the FDMS as its electronic record keeping system in 
accordance with the Federal Records Act, 44 U.S.C. 3301 et seq., for 
DOJ FDMS records, at present the permanent recordkeeping system for DOJ 
will remain a paper record keeping system. The FDMS is a system used by 
all Federal agencies that conduct rulemakings.
    The Department of Justice is publishing this new system of records 
notice for the E-Government, E-Rulemaking Initiative's FDMS, in order 
to satisfy the applicable requirements of the Privacy Act. Previously 
the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a notice in the 
Federal Register (70 FR 15086, March 24, 2005) as the Program Manager 
for the Federal-wide E-Rulemaking Initiative. This present notice 
provides information specific to the Department of Justice and its 
components and their use of electronic documents posted on, or 
submitted to, Justice FDMS, and replaces the EPA notice for DOJ records 
in the FDMS.
    Members of the public who use FDMS to submit a comment on a DOJ 
Federal rulemaking may be asked to provide name and contact information 
(e-mail or mailing address). If that comment meets all requirements, as 
determined by the Department of Justice or the component publishing the 
rulemaking, the comment will be posted on the Internet at the FDMS Web 
site--http://www.regulations.gov--for public viewing, and all the 
contents of the posted comment will be searchable. The FDMS is a system 
with full text search capability, that would include any name and 
identifying information submitted in the body of the comment. Names of 
individuals and organizations submitting comments using Justice FDMS 
will be posted on the http://www.regulations.gov site with their 
respective comments for public viewing. Contact information (e-mail or 
mailing address) will not be available for public viewing, unless the 
submitter includes that information in the body of the comment. Under 
any circumstances, contact information will be retained by the agency 
or the component as part of this system.
    A component may choose not to post certain types of information 
contained in a comment submission, yet preserve the entire comment to 
be reviewed and considered as part of the rulemaking docket by the 
component. For example, comments containing material restricted from 
disclosure by Federal statute may not be publicly posted, but will be 
retained and evaluated/considered by the receiving component.
    The Justice FDMS contains information that is submitted to the 
Department in support of Federal rulemakings. The portion of this 
system that is covered by the Privacy Act includes the personally 
identifiable information submitted by commenters.
    In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a (r), the Department has provided a 
report to OMB and appropriate Members of Congress.
