Privacy Act of 1974: System of Records

AGENCY: Commodity Futures Trading Commission.

ACTION: Notice of new system of records.

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

SUMMARY: This notice adds a new system of records to the Commission's 
systems of records under the Privacy Act of 1974, Public Law 93-579, 5 
U.S.C. 552a. The visitor information system contains information 
provided by visitors to the agency. The visitor provides 
identification, in the form of a driver's license, passport, or 
Federal/Military ID. The company affiliation of the visitor will also 
be requested. This information is scanned and linked to the name and 
office phone number of the CFTC employee sponsoring the visit, along 
with information on the location of the visit, time of entry, purpose 
of the visit, and the number of the badge issued to the visitor. The 
purpose of the information collection is to enhance the security of 
CFTC employees and property by verifying the identity of visitors, and 
to track the location of the visitor so that, in the event of an 
emergency, the agency can account for all the people in its space. 
Records in the visitor system will be retained for three months and 
then purged.

DATES: Comments on the establishment of the new system of records must 
be received no later than May 31, 2007. The new system of records will 
be effective June 11, 2007 unless the Commission receives comments 
which would result in a contrary determination.

ADDRESSES: Comments should be addressed to Eileen Donovan, Acting 
Secretary, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Three Lafayette 
Centre, 1155 21st St., NW., Washington, DC 20581. Comments may be sent 
via electronic mail to secretary@cftc.gov.
