    During the course of a FOIA action, exempt materials from `other' 
systems of records may in turn become part of the case records in this 
system. To the extent that copies of exempt records from those `other' 
systems of records are entered into this FOIA case record, the 
Department of the Air Force hereby claims the same exemptions for the 
records from those `other' systems that are entered into this system, 
as claimed for the original primary systems of records which they are a 
part.
    An exemption rule for this system has been promulgated in 
accordance with requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(1), (2), and (3), (c) 
and (e) and published in 32 CFR part 806b. For additional information 
contact the system manager.
