Description of Proposed Systems of Records This system of records is an umbrella system comprising separate sets of records located in VA Medical Center (VAMC) libraries throughout the United States. It includes records on VA employees, volunteers, students, E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 186 / Wednesday, September 24, 2008 / Notices contractors, veterans and others receiving care at the facility who have checked out books, audiovisual software and equipment and periodicals, who have requested the loan of books, audiovisuals and periodicals from other libraries via interlibrary loan, to whom the library routes periodical tables of contents on a recurring basis and for whom the library has provided a comprehensive search to identify materials on a particular topic, and who use computers located in the library, as well as VA employees and contractors who are responsible for books, audiovisuals and periodicals purchased for their respective departments. The records may contain information related to the name, last four digits of the social security number, e-mail address, other assigned identifier, work location information, such as service, and extension for employees, students, and ward location for patients, or other assigned ID; items checked out and in use (library books, journals, audiovisuals, and library public access computer work stations to ensure fiscal responsibility for items owned by the Federal government, compliance with the Coalition for Networked Information, National Commission on New Technological Uses of Copyright Works (CONTU) guidelines, which can be found at https://www.cni.org/docs/ info.policies/CONTU.html, and to maintain statistical data for program support. Library cards may be issued to current employees and patients who check out materials from the library. CONTU guidelines were developed by the National Commission on New Technological Uses of Copyrighted Works to assist librarians and copyright proprietors in understanding the amount of photocopying for use in interlibrary loan arrangements permitted under the copyright law. The records and information may be used to track library materials checked out to library users and those materials that are overdue, materials borrowed from other libraries for library users, to track and recover costs of lost library materials to determine library materials to purchase and/or replace based on usage, to track users of library public access computers, and to compile management and statistical reports. Cost is recovered by Fiscal Service through Bills of Collection. If Bills of Collection are not paid, Fiscal Service garnishes checks, including Federal tax refunds, or turns the matter over to collection agencies. VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:26 Sep 23, 2008 Jkt 214001 II. Proposed Routine Use Disclosures of Data in the System We are proposing to establish the following Routine Use disclosures of information maintained in the system: 1. Disclosure can be made to a collection agency in instances where individuals refuse to pay for lost or damaged materials. 2. Information from this system of records may be disclosed to a congressional office from the record of an individual in response to an inquiry from the congressional office made on behalf of that individual. Individuals sometimes request the help of a member of Congress in resolving some issues relating to a matter before VA. The member of Congress then writes VA, and VA must be able to give sufficient information in response to the inquiry. 3. Disclosure may be made to the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and the General Services Administration (GSA) for records management inspections under authority of Title 44, Chapter 29, of the United States Code. NARA and GSA are responsible for management of old records no longer actively used, but which may be appropriate for preservation; they are responsible in general for the physical maintenance of the Federal government’s records. VA must be able to turn records over to these agencies in order to determine the proper disposition of such records. 4. VA may disclose on its own initiative any information in this system, except the names and home addresses of veterans and their dependents, which is relevant to a suspected or reasonably imminent violation of law, whether civil, criminal or regulatory in nature and whether arising by general or program statute or by regulation, rule or order issued pursuant thereto, to a Federal, State, local, tribal, or foreign agency charged with the responsibility of investigating or prosecuting such violation, or charged with enforcing or implementing the statute, regulation, rule or order. On its own initiative, VA may also disclose the names and addresses of veterans and their dependents to a Federal agency charged with the responsibility of investigating or prosecuting civil, criminal or regulatory violations of law, or charged with enforcing or implementing the statute, regulation, rule or order issued pursuant thereto. VA must be able to provide on its own initiative information that pertains to a violation of laws to law enforcement authorities in order for them to investigate and enforce those laws. PO 00000 Frm 00195 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55215 Under 38 U.S.C. 5701(a) and (f), VA may only disclose the names and addresses of veterans and their dependents to Federal entities with law enforcement responsibilities. This is distinct from the authority to disclose records in response to a qualifying request from a law enforcement entity, as authorized by Privacy Act subsection 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(7). 5. Disclosure may be made to a Federal agency, in response to its request, in connection with the hiring or retention of an employee, the issuance of a security clearance, the conducting of a security or suitability investigation of an individual, the reporting of an investigation, the letting of a grant or other benefit, to the extent that the information is relevant and necessary to the requesting agency’s decision on the matter. VA must be able to provide information to agencies conducting background checks on applicants for employment. 6. VA may disclose information in this system of records to the Department of Justice (DoJ), either on VA’s initiative or in response to DoJ’s request for the information, after either VA or DoJ determines that such information is relevant to DoJ’s representation of the United States or any of its components in legal proceedings before a court or adjudicative body, provided that, in each case, the agency also determines prior to disclosure that disclosure of the records to the Department of Justice is a use of the information contained in the records that is compatible with the purpose for which VA collected the records. VA, on its own initiative, may disclose records in this system of records in legal proceedings before a court or administrative body after determining that the disclosure of the records to the court or administrative body is a use of the information contained in the records that is compatible with the purpose for which VA collected the records. VA must be able to provide information to DoJ in litigation where the United States or any of its components is involved or has an interest. A determination would be made in each instance that under the circumstances involved, the purpose is compatible with the purpose for which VA collected the information. This routine use is distinct from the authority to disclose records in response to a court order under subsection (b)(11) of the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(11), or any other provision of subsection (b), in accordance with the court’s analysis in Doe v. DiGenova, 779 F.2d 74, 78–84 E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES 55216 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 186 / Wednesday, September 24, 2008 / Notices (D.C. Cir. 1985) and Doe v. Stephens, 851 F.2d 1457, 1465–67 (D.C. Cir. 1988). 7. Disclosure of relevant information may be made to individuals, organizations, private or public agencies, etc., with whom VA has a contract or agreement to perform such services as VA may deem practicable for the purposes of laws administered by VA, in order for the contractor or subcontractor to perform the services of the contract or agreement. VA occasionally contracts out certain functions when this would contribute to effective and efficient operations. VA must be able to give a contractor whatever information is necessary for the contractor to fulfill its duties. In these situations, safeguards are provided in the contract prohibiting the contractor from using or disclosing the information for any purpose other than that described in the contract. 8. Disclosure may be made to officials of labor organizations recognized under 5 U.S.C. chapter 71 when relevant and necessary to their duties of exclusive representation concerning personnel policies, practices, and matters affecting working conditions. VA must be able to provide information to unions to assist them in advancing workers’ interests with respect to wages, benefits, and working conditions. The routine use does not provide any greater access to Privacy Act protected information under section 7114(b) then the unions would have to the information if it was not protected by the Privacy Act. The routine use simply removes the Privacy Act as a bar to the disclosure of the information at the Agency’s discretion. 9. Disclosure may be made to officials of the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), including the Office of the Special Counsel, when requested in connection with appeals, special studies of the civil service and other merit systems, review of rules and regulations, investigation of alleged or possible prohibited personnel practices, and such other functions, promulgated in 5 U.S.C. 1205 and 1206, or as may be authorized by law. VA must be able to provide information to MSPB to assist it in fulfilling its duties as required by statute and regulation. 10. Disclosure may be made to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) when requested in connection with investigations of alleged or possible discriminatory practices, examination of Federal affirmative employment programs, or other functions of the Commission as authorized by law or regulation. VA must be able to provide information to EEOC to assist it in fulfilling its duties VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:26 Sep 23, 2008 Jkt 214001 to protect employees’ rights, as required by statute and regulation. 11. Disclosure may be made at VA’s initiative to the appropriate Federal, State, or local agency responsible for investigating, prosecuting, enforcing, or implementing a statute, rule, regulation, or order, where the agency becomes aware of an indication of a violation or potential violation of civil or criminal law or regulation. 12. To disclose to the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) (including its General Counsel) information related to the establishment of jurisdiction, the investigation and resolution of allegations of unfair labor practices, or information in connection with the resolution of exceptions to arbitration awards when a question of material fact is raised; to disclose information in matters properly before the Federal Services Impasses Panel, and to investigate representation petitions and conduct or supervise representation elections. VA must be able to provide information to FLRA to comply with the statutory mandate under which it operates. 13. VA may, on its own initiative, disclose any information or records to appropriate agencies, entities, and persons when (1) VA suspects or has confirmed that the integrity or confidentiality of information in the system of records has been compromised; (2) the Department has determined that as a result of the suspected or confirmed compromise there is a risk of embarrassment or harm to the reputations of the record subjects, harm to economic or property interests, identity theft or fraud, or harm to the security, confidentiality, or integrity of this system or other systems or programs (whether maintained by the Department or another agency or entity) that rely upon the potentially compromised information; and (3) the disclosure is to agencies, entities, or persons whom VA determines are reasonably necessary to assist or carry out the Department’s efforts to respond to the suspected or confirmed compromise and prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm. This routine use permits disclosures by the Department to respond to a suspected or confirmed data breach, including the conduct of any risk analysis or provision of credit protection services as provided in 38 U.S.C. 5724, as the terms are defined in 38 U.S.C. 5727. VA must be able to disclose records in order to respond to and minimize possible harm to individuals as a result of a data breach, to meet its duties under PO 00000 Frm 00196 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Chapter 57 of Title 38 and the Privacy Act. 14. VA may disclose information from this system of records relevant to a claim of a veteran or beneficiary, such as the name, address, the basis and nature of a claim, amount of benefit payment information, medical information, and military service and active duty separation information, at the request of the claimant to accredited service organizations, VA approved claim agents, and attorneys acting under a declaration of representation, so that these individuals can aid claimants in the preparation, presentation, and prosecution of claims under the laws administered by VA. The name and address of a claimant will not, however, be disclosed to these individuals under this routine use if the claimant has not requested the assistance of an accredited service organization, claims agent or an attorney. VA must be able to disclose this information to accredited service organizations, VA approved claim agents, and attorneys representing veterans so they can assist veterans by preparing, presenting, and prosecuting claims under the laws administered by VA. III. Compatibility of the Proposed Routine Uses The Privacy Act permits VA to disclose information about individuals without their consent for a routine use when the information will be used for a purpose that is compatible with the purpose for which we collected the information. In all of the routine use disclosures described above, the recipient of the information will use the information in connection with a matter relating to one of VA’s programs, will use the information to provide a benefit to VA, or disclosure is required by law. The notice of intent to publish an advance copy of the system notice have been sent to the appropriate Congressional committees and to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) (Privacy Act) and guidelines issued by OMB (65 FR 77677), December 12, 2000.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Description of Proposed Systems of Records

    This system of records is an umbrella system comprising separate 
sets of records located in VA Medical Center (VAMC) libraries 
throughout the United States. It includes records on VA employees, 
volunteers, students,

[[Page 55215]]

contractors, veterans and others receiving care at the facility who 
have checked out books, audiovisual software and equipment and 
periodicals, who have requested the loan of books, audiovisuals and 
periodicals from other libraries via interlibrary loan, to whom the 
library routes periodical tables of contents on a recurring basis and 
for whom the library has provided a comprehensive search to identify 
materials on a particular topic, and who use computers located in the 
library, as well as VA employees and contractors who are responsible 
for books, audiovisuals and periodicals purchased for their respective 
departments. The records may contain information related to the name, 
last four digits of the social security number, e-mail address, other 
assigned identifier, work location information, such as service, and 
extension for employees, students, and ward location for patients, or 
other assigned ID; items checked out and in use (library books, 
journals, audiovisuals, and library public access computer work 
stations to ensure fiscal responsibility for items owned by the Federal 
government, compliance with the Coalition for Networked Information, 
National Commission on New Technological Uses of Copyright Works 
(CONTU) guidelines, which can be found at https://www.cni.org/docs/
info.policies/CONTU.html, and to maintain statistical data for program 
support. Library cards may be issued to current employees and patients 
who check out materials from the library. CONTU guidelines were 
developed by the National Commission on New Technological Uses of 
Copyrighted Works to assist librarians and copyright proprietors in 
understanding the amount of photocopying for use in interlibrary loan 
arrangements permitted under the copyright law.
    The records and information may be used to track library materials 
checked out to library users and those materials that are overdue, 
materials borrowed from other libraries for library users, to track and 
recover costs of lost library materials to determine library materials 
to purchase and/or replace based on usage, to track users of library 
public access computers, and to compile management and statistical 
reports. Cost is recovered by Fiscal Service through Bills of 
Collection. If Bills of Collection are not paid, Fiscal Service 
garnishes checks, including Federal tax refunds, or turns the matter 
over to collection agencies.

II. Proposed Routine Use Disclosures of Data in the System

    We are proposing to establish the following Routine Use disclosures 
of information maintained in the system:
    1. Disclosure can be made to a collection agency in instances where 
individuals refuse to pay for lost or damaged materials.
    2. Information from this system of records may be disclosed to a 
congressional office from the record of an individual in response to an 
inquiry from the congressional office made on behalf of that 
individual. Individuals sometimes request the help of a member of 
Congress in resolving some issues relating to a matter before VA. The 
member of Congress then writes VA, and VA must be able to give 
sufficient information in response to the inquiry.
    3. Disclosure may be made to the National Archives and Records 
Administration (NARA) and the General Services Administration (GSA) for 
records management inspections under authority of Title 44, Chapter 29, 
of the United States Code.
    NARA and GSA are responsible for management of old records no 
longer actively used, but which may be appropriate for preservation; 
they are responsible in general for the physical maintenance of the 
Federal government's records. VA must be able to turn records over to 
these agencies in order to determine the proper disposition of such 
records.
    4. VA may disclose on its own initiative any information in this 
system, except the names and home addresses of veterans and their 
dependents, which is relevant to a suspected or reasonably imminent 
violation of law, whether civil, criminal or regulatory in nature and 
whether arising by general or program statute or by regulation, rule or 
order issued pursuant thereto, to a Federal, State, local, tribal, or 
foreign agency charged with the responsibility of investigating or 
prosecuting such violation, or charged with enforcing or implementing 
the statute, regulation, rule or order. On its own initiative, VA may 
also disclose the names and addresses of veterans and their dependents 
to a Federal agency charged with the responsibility of investigating or 
prosecuting civil, criminal or regulatory violations of law, or charged 
with enforcing or implementing the statute, regulation, rule or order 
issued pursuant thereto.
    VA must be able to provide on its own initiative information that 
pertains to a violation of laws to law enforcement authorities in order 
for them to investigate and enforce those laws. Under 38 U.S.C. 5701(a) 
and (f), VA may only disclose the names and addresses of veterans and 
their dependents to Federal entities with law enforcement 
responsibilities. This is distinct from the authority to disclose 
records in response to a qualifying request from a law enforcement 
entity, as authorized by Privacy Act subsection 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(7).
    5. Disclosure may be made to a Federal agency, in response to its 
request, in connection with the hiring or retention of an employee, the 
issuance of a security clearance, the conducting of a security or 
suitability investigation of an individual, the reporting of an 
investigation, the letting of a grant or other benefit, to the extent 
that the information is relevant and necessary to the requesting 
agency's decision on the matter.
    VA must be able to provide information to agencies conducting 
background checks on applicants for employment.
    6. VA may disclose information in this system of records to the 
Department of Justice (DoJ), either on VA's initiative or in response 
to DoJ's request for the information, after either VA or DoJ determines 
that such information is relevant to DoJ's representation of the United 
States or any of its components in legal proceedings before a court or 
adjudicative body, provided that, in each case, the agency also 
determines prior to disclosure that disclosure of the records to the 
Department of Justice is a use of the information contained in the 
records that is compatible with the purpose for which VA collected the 
records. VA, on its own initiative, may disclose records in this system 
of records in legal proceedings before a court or administrative body 
after determining that the disclosure of the records to the court or 
administrative body is a use of the information contained in the 
records that is compatible with the purpose for which VA collected the 
records.
    VA must be able to provide information to DoJ in litigation where 
the United States or any of its components is involved or has an 
interest. A determination would be made in each instance that under the 
circumstances involved, the purpose is compatible with the purpose for 
which VA collected the information. This routine use is distinct from 
the authority to disclose records in response to a court order under 
subsection (b)(11) of the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(11), or any 
other provision of subsection (b), in accordance with the court's 
analysis in Doe v. DiGenova, 779 F.2d 74, 78-84

[[Page 55216]]

(D.C. Cir. 1985) and Doe v. Stephens, 851 F.2d 1457, 1465-67 (D.C. Cir. 
1988).
    7. Disclosure of relevant information may be made to individuals, 
organizations, private or public agencies, etc., with whom VA has a 
contract or agreement to perform such services as VA may deem 
practicable for the purposes of laws administered by VA, in order for 
the contractor or subcontractor to perform the services of the contract 
or agreement.
    VA occasionally contracts out certain functions when this would 
contribute to effective and efficient operations. VA must be able to 
give a contractor whatever information is necessary for the contractor 
to fulfill its duties. In these situations, safeguards are provided in 
the contract prohibiting the contractor from using or disclosing the 
information for any purpose other than that described in the contract.
    8. Disclosure may be made to officials of labor organizations 
recognized under 5 U.S.C. chapter 71 when relevant and necessary to 
their duties of exclusive representation concerning personnel policies, 
practices, and matters affecting working conditions.
    VA must be able to provide information to unions to assist them in 
advancing workers' interests with respect to wages, benefits, and 
working conditions. The routine use does not provide any greater access 
to Privacy Act protected information under section 7114(b) then the 
unions would have to the information if it was not protected by the 
Privacy Act. The routine use simply removes the Privacy Act as a bar to 
the disclosure of the information at the Agency's discretion.
    9. Disclosure may be made to officials of the Merit Systems 
Protection Board (MSPB), including the Office of the Special Counsel, 
when requested in connection with appeals, special studies of the civil 
service and other merit systems, review of rules and regulations, 
investigation of alleged or possible prohibited personnel practices, 
and such other functions, promulgated in 5 U.S.C. 1205 and 1206, or as 
may be authorized by law. VA must be able to provide information to 
MSPB to assist it in fulfilling its duties as required by statute and 
regulation.
    10. Disclosure may be made to the Equal Employment Opportunity 
Commission (EEOC) when requested in connection with investigations of 
alleged or possible discriminatory practices, examination of Federal 
affirmative employment programs, or other functions of the Commission 
as authorized by law or regulation. VA must be able to provide 
information to EEOC to assist it in fulfilling its duties to protect 
employees' rights, as required by statute and regulation.
    11. Disclosure may be made at VA's initiative to the appropriate 
Federal, State, or local agency responsible for investigating, 
prosecuting, enforcing, or implementing a statute, rule, regulation, or 
order, where the agency becomes aware of an indication of a violation 
or potential violation of civil or criminal law or regulation.
    12. To disclose to the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) 
(including its General Counsel) information related to the 
establishment of jurisdiction, the investigation and resolution of 
allegations of unfair labor practices, or information in connection 
with the resolution of exceptions to arbitration awards when a question 
of material fact is raised; to disclose information in matters properly 
before the Federal Services Impasses Panel, and to investigate 
representation petitions and conduct or supervise representation 
elections.
    VA must be able to provide information to FLRA to comply with the 
statutory mandate under which it operates.
    13. VA may, on its own initiative, disclose any information or 
records to appropriate agencies, entities, and persons when (1) VA 
suspects or has confirmed that the integrity or confidentiality of 
information in the system of records has been compromised; (2) the 
Department has determined that as a result of the suspected or 
confirmed compromise there is a risk of embarrassment or harm to the 
reputations of the record subjects, harm to economic or property 
interests, identity theft or fraud, or harm to the security, 
confidentiality, or integrity of this system or other systems or 
programs (whether maintained by the Department or another agency or 
entity) that rely upon the potentially compromised information; and (3) 
the disclosure is to agencies, entities, or persons whom VA determines 
are reasonably necessary to assist or carry out the Department's 
efforts to respond to the suspected or confirmed compromise and 
prevent, minimize, or remedy such harm. This routine use permits 
disclosures by the Department to respond to a suspected or confirmed 
data breach, including the conduct of any risk analysis or provision of 
credit protection services as provided in 38 U.S.C. 5724, as the terms 
are defined in 38 U.S.C. 5727.
    VA must be able to disclose records in order to respond to and 
minimize possible harm to individuals as a result of a data breach, to 
meet its duties under Chapter 57 of Title 38 and the Privacy Act.
    14. VA may disclose information from this system of records 
relevant to a claim of a veteran or beneficiary, such as the name, 
address, the basis and nature of a claim, amount of benefit payment 
information, medical information, and military service and active duty 
separation information, at the request of the claimant to accredited 
service organizations, VA approved claim agents, and attorneys acting 
under a declaration of representation, so that these individuals can 
aid claimants in the preparation, presentation, and prosecution of 
claims under the laws administered by VA. The name and address of a 
claimant will not, however, be disclosed to these individuals under 
this routine use if the claimant has not requested the assistance of an 
accredited service organization, claims agent or an attorney. VA must 
be able to disclose this information to accredited service 
organizations, VA approved claim agents, and attorneys representing 
veterans so they can assist veterans by preparing, presenting, and 
prosecuting claims under the laws administered by VA.

III. Compatibility of the Proposed Routine Uses

    The Privacy Act permits VA to disclose information about 
individuals without their consent for a routine use when the 
information will be used for a purpose that is compatible with the 
purpose for which we collected the information. In all of the routine 
use disclosures described above, the recipient of the information will 
use the information in connection with a matter relating to one of VA's 
programs, will use the information to provide a benefit to VA, or 
disclosure is required by law.
    The notice of intent to publish an advance copy of the system 
notice have been sent to the appropriate Congressional committees and 
to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) as 
required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) (Privacy Act) and guidelines issued by OMB 
(65 FR 77677), December 12, 2000.

    Approved: September 9, 2008.
Gordon H. Mansfield,
Deputy Secretary of Veterans Affairs.

SYSTEM NAME:
    Library Network (VALNET)-VA.

SYSTEM LOCATION:
    Records are maintained at each Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) 
medical center library (see Appendix A)

[[Page 55217]]

and VA Central Office Library at 810 Vermont Avenue, NW., Washington, 
DC 20420.

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:
    The records may include information concerning all present and 
former VA employees volunteers, students, contractors, regardless of 
whether they check out materials or use tables of content routing and 
interlibrary loan services, but only those veterans and others 
receiving care at the facility who check out materials.

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:
    The records may include information related to:
    1. Items checked out and in use (library books, journals, 
audiovisuals);
    2. Library public access computer work stations used by VA staff 
and patients;
    3. Name, last four digits of the social security number, email 
address, other assigned identifier, work location information, such as 
service, and extension for employees, students, and ward location for 
patients or other assigned ID.

AUTHORITY FOR MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM:
    Title 38, United States Code, section 501.

PURPOSE(S):
    The records and information may be used to track library materials 
checked out to library users and those materials that are overdue, 
materials borrowed from other libraries for library users, to track and 
recover costs of lost library materials to determine library materials 
to purchase and/or replace based on usage, to track users of library 
public access computers, and to compile management and statistical 
reports. Cost is recovered by Fiscal Service through Bills of 
Collection. If Bills of Collection are not paid, Fiscal Service 
garnishes checks, including Federal tax refunds, or turns the matter 
over to collection agencies.

ROUTINE USES OF RECORDS MAINTAINED IN THE SYSTEM, INCLUDING CATEGORIES 
OF USERS AND THE PURPOSES OF SUCH USES:
    1. Information from this system of records may be disclosed to a 
congressional office from the record of an individual in response to an 
inquiry from the congressional office made on behalf of that 
individual.
    2. Disclosure may be made to the National Archives and Records 
Administration (NARA) for records management inspections under 
authority of Title 44 United States Code.
    3. Disclosure may be at VA's initiative made to the appropriate 
Federal, State, or local agency responsible for investigating, 
prosecuting, enforcing, or implementing a statute, rule, regulation, or 
order, where the agency becomes aware of an indication of a violation 
or potential violation of civil or criminal law or regulation.
    4. A record from this system of records may be disclosed to a 
Federal agency, in response to its request, in connection with the 
hiring or retention of an employee, the issuance of a security 
clearance, the conducting of a security or suitability investigation of 
an individual, the reporting of an investigation, the letting of a 
grant or other benefit, to the extent that the information is relevant 
and necessary to the requesting agency's decision on the matter.
    5. Records from this system of records may be disclosed in a 
proceeding before a court, adjudicative body, or other administrative 
body when the Agency, or any Agency component or employee (in his or 
her official capacity as a VA employee), is a party to litigation; when 
the Agency determines that litigation is likely to affect the Agency, 
any of its components or employees, or the United States has an 
interest in the litigation, and such records are deemed to be relevant 
and necessary to the legal proceedings; provided that the disclosure is 
compatible with the purpose for which the records were collected.
    6. Disclosure of relevant information may be made to individuals, 
organizations, private or public agencies, etc., with whom VA has a 
contract or agreement to perform such services as VA may deem 
practicable for the purposes of laws administered by VA, in order for 
the contractor or subcontractor to perform the services of the contract 
or agreement.
    7. Disclosure may be made to officials of labor organizations 
recognized under 5 U.S.C. chapter 71 when relevant and necessary to 
their duties of exclusive representation concerning personnel policies, 
practices, and matters affecting working conditions.

Protection Board, including the Office of the Special Counsel, when 
requested in connection with appeals, special studies of the civil 
service and other merit systems, review of rules and regulations, 
investigation of alleged or possible prohibited personnel practices, 
and such other functions, promulgated in 5 U.S.C. 1205 and 1206, or as 
may be authorized by law.
    9. Disclosure may be made to the Equal Employment Opportunity 
Commission when requested in connection with investigations of alleged 
or possible discrimination.
    10. VA may disclose information in this system of records to the 
Department of Justice (DoJ), either on VA's initiative or in response 
to DoJ's request for the information, after either VA or DoJ determines 
that such information is relevant to DoJ's representation of the United 
States or any of its components in legal proceedings before a court or 
adjudicative body, provided that, in each case, the agency also 
determines prior to disclosure that disclosure of the records to the 
DoJ is a use of the information contained in the records that is 
compatible with the purpose for which VA collected the records. VA, on 
its own initiative, may disclose records in this system of records in 
legal proceedings before a court or administrative body after 
determining that the disclosure of the records to the court or 
administrative body is a use of the information contained in the 
records that is compatible with the purpose for which VA collected the 
records.
    11. VA may disclose on its own initiative any information in this 
system, except the names and home addresses of veterans and their 
dependents, which is relevant to a suspected or reasonably imminent 
violation of law, whether civil, criminal or regulatory in nature and 
whether arising by general or program statute or by regulation, rule or 
order issued pursuant thereto, to a Federal, State, local, tribal, or 
foreign agency charged with the responsibility of investigating or 
prosecuting such violation, or charged with enforcing or implementing 
the statute, regulation, rule or order. On its own initiative, VA may 
also disclose the names and addresses of veterans and their dependents 
to a Federal agency charged with the responsibility of investigating or 
prosecuting civil, criminal or regulatory violations of law, or charged 
with enforcing or implementing the statute, regulation, rule or order 
issued pursuant thereto.
    12. To disclose to the Federal Labor Relations Authority (including

raised; to disclose information in matters properly before the Federal 
Services Impasses Panel, and to investigate representation petitions 
and conduct or supervise representation elections.
    13. VA may, on its own initiative, disclose any information or 
records to

[[Page 55218]]

appropriate agencies, entities, and persons when (1) VA suspects or has 
confirmed that the integrity or confidentiality of information in the 
system of records has been compromised; (2) the Department has 
determined that as a result of the suspected or confirmed compromise 
there is a risk of embarrassment or harm to the reputations of the 
record subjects, harm to economic or property interests, identity theft 
or fraud, or harm to the security, confidentiality, or integrity of 
this system or other systems or programs (whether maintained by the 
Department or another agency or entity) that rely upon the potentially 
compromised information; and (3) the disclosure is to agencies, 
entities, or persons whom VA determines are reasonably necessary to 
assist or carry out the Department's efforts to respond to the 
suspected or confirmed compromise and prevent, minimize, or remedy such 
harm. This routine use permits disclosures by the Department to respond 
to a suspected or confirmed data breach, including the conduct of any 
risk analysis or provision of credit protection services as provided in 
38 U.S.C. 5724, as the terms are defined in 38 U.S.C. 5727.
    14. VA may disclose information from this system of records 
relevant to a claim of a veteran or beneficiary, such as the name, 
address, the basis and nature of a claim, amount of benefit payment 
information, medical information, and military service and active duty 
separation information, at the request of the claimant to accredited 
service organizations, VA approved claim agents, and attorneys acting 
under a declaration of representation, so that these individuals can 
aid claimants in the preparation, presentation, and prosecution of 
claims under the laws administered by VA. The name and address of a 
claimant will not, however, be disclosed to these individuals under 
this routine use if the claimant has not requested the assistance of an 
accredited service organization, claims agent or an attorney. VA must 
be able to disclose this information to accredited service 
organizations, VA approved claim agents, and attorneys representing 
veterans so they can assist veterans by preparing, presenting, and 
prosecuting claims under the laws administered by VA.
